We love you, Christopher, and miss you every single day.

Guys, who knows how we could start a scholarship fund for a scholarship to study language and social issues like racism in Rio de Janeiro and name it after Christopher... maybe Prof Kenneth Jackson can help... he knew him at UT and he is at Yale now...,maybe some of you are connected with the alumni association and can find. out....

Four weeks later and it seems impossible that you are gone. Miss you so much and feeling your spirit everywhere around us. It brings such comfort to look over these entries and see all the photographs, read the comments, and see how loved and valued you were and will always be. So very hard to accept. Please come visit me in dreams. Let's cross Vieira Souto and spend the morning on Ipanema. We'll float in the ocean and when Vovo comes to the edge of the water, fully dressed, and calls us in for lunch, we can look at each other over the waves, pretend we don't hear for a minute or two or five and keep on playing.

Dear Liese,
Christopher was the sort of person whose
life so many wanted to celebrate, there was
no way to fit all the GULC flower fund
participants on the notes with the flowers
themselves. Below are those who joined
together in the effort.
With sympathy,

Walk in beauty forever. Lifting this family and friends to the highest heights, which, of course, he taught us through loving example to scale fearlessly.

I can't tell you how devastating it was to hear earlier this afternoon that Christopher Ballantyne passed away this morning. Christopher was a member of our team for the past 17 years and helped define Instructional Technology at the Law Center. He always had thoughtful feedback on any of the conversations he engaged and was someone that everyone could rely and depend on. I will personally miss him and know that all of you that have worked with him are felling his loss right now.

I enjoyed coming to know Christopher and working with him. We are all the poorer because of his passing.

This news breaks my heart. Christopher was one of the most interesting people in a building full of interesting people. And as others have said, enormously kind, endlessly patient, well read, crazy smart, and funny. I will miss him terribly.
