Chris was my nephew who spent summer vacations as a young child riding coast to coast with my husband in his tractor trailer. He lived and dreamed of having his own truck and he was able to live that dream. I will miss him along with all who him. My sincere sympathy to Carol and his two children. He is with now our Lord in heaven free from pain and for all who knew him knowing he is probably still arguing politics with the angels.
