    So sorry for your loss. Thinking of all of you during this difficult and sad time.

  6. I did not personally know Christopher, however i did have a few brief talks with him at Kwik trip when i would come down and visit my parents. He always made me laugh, because i was from Greenbay and i liked the Bears, he would always say.. lock the door the Bear is coming….
    My heart goes out to the entire family….I was sadden to see the obituary, and sadden because the time i got with him was very brief, but will awyas be remebered…..
