He was my buddy and guide. He would listen to my ideas and just say "Yes you can but is this really what you want to do?" The five years that we had known each other he really had the inside skinny on me. I was really looking forward to running for office with you Chris maybe on a level higher up. I will keep running the charity as you said keep doing what makes you happy and the funding will come.
I love you man and will see you sometime soon. Your friend Wild Bill :)

I love you Chris. I am so so sorry. You were deeply loved by many. Your personality was like none other, Chris. I loved the conversations we always had and the bond of respect and love. You gave me the courage to pursue making the movie of my son, Michael's Life and Legacy "Buckle Up" and you saw it coming to fruition! You and my Michael can meet in Heaven and guide me through it to make "OUR MASTERPIECE"! I miss and love you, Suzanne xoxo

Words are never enough to ease the sorrow of losing a loved one. You are in my prayers at this difficult time. May God comfort your Mom. Your brother has gone to join the ancestors, but he will live forever in his family's heart.
