Not sure what to say?

Chris was a wonderful man, father, husband, friend and a giver of so much music to everyone who knew him. My heart goes out to his daughter Kristen and her mom Louise. Rest in Peace Chris. Love Mike and Michele

A Candle Lighting Ceremony in Celebration of Chris’ Life will be held on Saturday, July 19, 2014 at 8 pm in Florida. I am unable to make it Florida to join in the ceremony. I am Lighting the Candle in this Guest Book to Honor Chris and his Family. My thoughts and prayers will be with you all at 8 pm on Saturday!

Chris: you took me on as a student when I was no youngster. I had failed at guitar with 2 other teachers but you taught me with your flip flop slapping your foot like a metronome. Your amazing talent and big heart will be with me always. Now I know there will be music in heaven. Love Janie

I am shocked and saddened to hear the news of Chris's passing. I met Chris in 1997 at his home studio in Cocoa, as we got together to produce a CD. We quickly became good friends, and spent allot of time together clubbing and generally hanging out and having a great time. Despite the great accomplishments in his life, he was always very selfless and humble, which was certainly the greatest part of his character. Rest in Peace my friend, you will be very missed.

I still have the song your wrote for me when we were engaged so very long ago... Your music was brilliant as were you. Such a talented, beautiful person. See you in heaven my friend.

A life so very well lived, Chris continues with us still.

Thanks for all you taught me,miss you Chris.

Like Mr. Reindel, I never got the opportunity to meet Chris in person, but interacting online as a fellow musician were unforgettable moments in my life that were very inspirational.
He was one of the best (and funniest) musicians I've had the pleasure to associate with.
Rest in Peace, Chris.

I never had the pleasure of meeting Chris face to face but I was highly honored to have co-written two albums with him. He was the complete musician. He had more talent in his pinky than many in the music business could ever dream of having. Yet, he was humble, patient and above all honest...especially in a business where honesty is rare.
Having just learned of his passing today, I am in complete and utter shock.
I am missing you already Chris. I wish I could have met you in...
