How timely this message of remembering Chris is. I was in Strack's yesterday, & remembered, it was the last place, & time I spoke with him. He was still positive, & upbeat, even as his body was fighting the fight, to restore his health.
Chris was a beautiful part of Our Nipsco Family, & a beautiful shining star in life.
Continued Blessings of Peace, & Comfort to his Family. <3

Chris, your enthusiasm was contagious. I always loved talking with you, when I'd see you at work, or out, & about. Even when you told me you'd been ill, you were still optimistic, & encouraging. Your biggest love, when we spoke, was your family, especially, your son. We sure will miss your bright light, but we're so happy, you passed our way. We're praying for the family. Take your rest good friend. Peace.
