    Chris always had a firm hand shake and a smile on Sunday morning. He was a pleasure to visit with.
    Now he is in the house that Jesus built for him and visiting again with his mother and father and his nephew.
    There is no more pain in his new heavenly body.

    I remember the last time I saw him and spent time with him and Jannis and they both took me out to lunch at Braum’s after church. I had so many good laughs with the both of them.
