We little knew that morning that morning that God would call your name. In life we loved you dearly,in death we do the same. It broke our hearts to lose you, you did not go alone; for part of us went with you, the day God called you home. You left us peaceful memories, your love is still our guide; and though we cannot see you, you are always at our side. Our family chain is broken,and nothing seems the same; but as God calls us one by one, the chain will link again. R.I.P. Christopher♥

If We Could Bring You Back Again

If we could bring you back again,

For one more hour or day,

Weíd express all our unspoken love;

Weíd have countless things to say.

If we could bring you back again,

Weíd say we treasured you,

And that your presence in our lives

Meant more than we ever knew.

If we could bring you back again,

To tell you what we should,

Youíd know how much we miss you now,

And if we could, we would.

By Joanna Fuchs

I will Love & Miss you forever Chris!

I only have a few memories of my cousin Chris which are of only the best. I will never forget the trip to Cooperstown to experience the baseball hall of fame, camping at the KOA while going up there. He has a place in my heart.

Love always
