Christian you left us way to soon but the impact you had on so many will continue to live on forever. Your beautiful daughter Gianna is a living portrait of you. She has your bigger than life heart your loving spirit and athleticism. Your Mom, brother and aunt have an empty void that never can be replaced and they all love you more than life itself. Nicko is going to be making it to the "big time" and you'll be smiling down saying that's my boy! Katy is gorgeous and thank God they both have loving supportive parents. I personally am going to miss our "talks". Big Hugs and a Million Kisses.....Mrs. B

I consider myself blessed to have Chris as a swimmer on my high school team and as a friend. Chris was a true warrior. He didn`t care who was swimming against him in any race. Anyone who saw the fantastic races between him and Tom Wilkens in the breaststroke, or the butterfly against Brendon O`Neill know the real Chris, who hid behind his fantastic, quick witted, laughing personality. Everyone who knew Chris shares the loss his family has experienced, and I pray they find solace in the comments, sharing of stories, and overwhelming love everyone has shown for him. My life has been enriched by knowing and coaching Chris.

When I heard that you were gone, I could not believe it. I was flooded with memories of swim team and Sandy Hook. You are not here physically but your memory will live on and your infectious smile and laughter will be forever in our hearts! Rest in peace, Christian.
