    Chris, words cannot express how much you will be missed my friend. Your funny little ways, that made you, who you are and someone special to all of us. I will miss how you always got so excited to get together with friends and family like it was Christmas. I too will miss the birthday calls, you have never missed one in all the time I’ve known you; although a few times you went a day early. We will never forget that you were here, and we will miss you everyday that you are not.
    Love you heaps.

    You will be dearly missed by us all.
    Rest easy, you’ll be forever in our memories and hearts.
