Still miss you. More than you will ever know or could have guessed. You meant so very, very much to me. I miss holding your hand and hearing your laugh. I miss you so much. I love you always.

I miss you. Some days I don't know what to do with that. My son only remembers the big guy who made him laugh from photos now and the leather Batman bracelet you gave him that he's still not big enough to wear even as a teenager. Just like our memories of you it's precious.

One of the drawbacks to my own life is that I have missed a lot. Embarrassingly, I am just learning of Chris' passing now. Obviously, it has been some time since we were last in touch (Over 25 years) but I take solace knowing that I had the pleasure to know him during my childhood and the positive impact he had on me. A big individual with an even bigger heart! People come in and out of our lives all the time but there are a precious few who leave such an impression you never forget them. Chris was one of those people.

Thank you Chris for taking over my paper route when we were kids, saving my life in Ocean City from the undertow, and the countless laughs from the stories only you could tell.

Rest easy my long lost friend.

I wish you were here. Cale did an amazing thing when confronted by a bully at school. You'd be proud.

I miss you daily, hourly. I don't have my touchstone, my baby brother. I love you so very, very much and miss you so very, very much. PS: the cats are fine.

Chris, thank you for showing all of us how to care and love for one another, you were truly blessed with a wonderful gift of love. Thank you for all the laughs and stories, for always being on Ray duty and being so kind to my family. You are loved by so many, but none as much as Alicia. She and all you have touched will carry your loving spirit with us always. Chris, you will be greatly missed but never forgotten!

We say our final goodbyes to you today, cuz. My memories of you from our childhood will always stay close to my heart. You were always my right hand man at every birthday party I had as a kid. I never wanted anyone next to me other than you! I can honestly say that you were one person who remained exactly the same the older you became. A kind, gentle person with a loving heart. I take comfort in the fact that you are with Aunt Jude & Uncle Bill. You will be forever missed!

Chris would sometimes visit with me when I was in town at the Mostermania convention in Cherry Hill. He was always fun to hang out with. We kept in touch with an email here and there. If I did not live hundreds of miles away, I am certain we would have been better friends. :)

You were my best friend here in Philly and became like my brother. I can't imagine life without you, and will love you and keep you in my heart forever. My heart is full of memories but longs for all the things you, Scott, and I talked about doing together...however, most of all it longs to see you again. I miss you more than you know.

We were only casual friends, and hadn't seen each other in years, but when my mother died two years ago and I drove through Philly on the way to the funeral, he made it a point to meet with me and give me hugs and hang out for a bit. I'll miss you big man, I wish we'd had more time. :(

I am so incredibly sad that I won't get to see your kind face again, Chris. I consider myself lucky to have me you. You were such a positive person when it came to cheering others up and had such an incredibly big heart. May you find peace <3

I only had the great pleasure of getting to know Chris through my daughter and son-in-law: Caro and Scott Cuneo. Having met him on several occasions I understood why everyone liked him. It was literally impossible to know him and not become his friend. I am sending healing and comforting white light to surround you all.

Chris had to be one of the kindest people I have ever met. He had a presence that made everyone want to know and be around him. Such a creative and talented soul, and I will cherish every piece of jewelry made by him. We lost an amazing man far too soon. My thoughts are with his family, girlfriend and friends.

I remember Chris so fondly. Chris played the sousaphone when he was in elementary school. He would proudly lug the big instrument back in forth...his mom driving him to school....fitting it into the back of their car. He was such a loving, gentle soul. RIP, Chris. You have left your caring, loving imprint in the hearts of others.
Love, Jayne Elfreth

He and my son Chris were great friends. If he wasn't at our house my Chris was at his. I could see them jumping in his swimming pool from my front door. Such a wonderful person with that huge big heart. He will be so terribly missed. Hugs to you Alicia. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Nancy Heidler.
