Linda and Matt, there are no words for me to express how much my heart hurts for you and your family. Losing a child is one of the hardest things a parent endures in their lifetime. I pray God's peace and comfort during this time and may God's grace be sufficient. Love you!! Myra

Oh, goodness. I am so sad to learn of Chris's passing. He was so hilarious and kind, and it was so nice to get to know him during our days at Lamar together. Nick and I still laugh about some of the funny memories we made with him. I know we haven't seen him in a few years, but he always put smiles on our faces. Rest in peace, Chris. May all who love you be comforted by good memories of you. He is gone from this world much too soon, but we are grateful to have known you.

Matt and Linda, Chris was one of my closest friends for many years. He was such a good person who had a wit I will never forget. We made a lot of good, funny memories together over the years. You were wonderful parents to Chris and he loved you both very much. My heart goes out to the both of you for your loss. The world will be an emptier place without Chris in it.

Mr. and Mrs. Orlando, a teacher friend of mine told me about Christopher. I was shocked! He's much too young to die! I am so so sorry! I remember Christopher in my 3rd grade class at Highland Park. I used to call him my absented minded professor (not outloud to him, of course.) He was always loosing stuff. But smart as a whip! I thoroughly enjoyed teaching him. He was a bright spot in my life! When I would see y'all at church I would always ask you to tell Christopher hello for me. I will send a donation to St. Jude's in his memory. Love, Mrs. Bosarge
