My family and I will continue to keep you and your family in prayer. While we try to understand that this is the transition and steps that were already ordered, it can still be difficult at times to get used to. I remember when my oldest now 17 was a student in your kindergarten class 2005, and you introduced Chris to everyone, how happy we all were for you. Years later when my children and I started at Liberty Baptist, I was taking my son to the children's Church and there Chris was welcoming in the children. I knew he looked familiar but couldn't quite put my finger on it and then we saw you right by his side! That's what I will always remember. . Your love for one another is an inspiration, that I truly admire and pray I will have experienced in this lifetime as well. May God continue to Bless you!

We met our neighbor Chris during the aftermath of Hurricane Isabel. We recall working with Chris to clear debris from our elderly neighbors' yards. He was cheerful, focused, and eager to lend a hand. We lost touch after he moved to Yorktown and are saddened to learn of his passing. We're hardly surprised yet glad to know that so many eagerly lent a hand to a truly kind and giving gentleman when needed. Our thoughts and prayers are with Brooke, their sons, his parents, and his extended family.

Brooke and family thinking of you in these difficult times. Wishing you hope in the midst of sorrow and comfort in the midst of pain. We'll always remember Chris as we continue to keep you in our prayers.

To the families and friends of Christopher Lee Owenby. I do not know the families personally but we all lose love ones in death. I just want to send my deepest condolences to the families. May God give all of you comfort and peace at this difficult time. Please allow God to strengthen you in your grief. I am sorry for your loss.
Virginia will always be my home but now I live in Harrisburg Pa.
