  • Christian…
    I’m sorry, I fell asleep babe! It def wasn’t supposed to turn out like this ! And too fast for anyone’s comfort or understanding….except mine! I know you’ve found peace next to your father and please look out for Jeremiah, you didn’t have the chance to meet him but I’m confident he met you at the gates. I love you and miss you so damn much, it’s not fair. If only you knew the impact you had upon my daughter and I when the rest of the world turned their back…we had each other….and I know just because your no longer here in the physical sense, you continue to watch over us, making sure we’re good, always !!

  • To Gavin, All family members and the mother of little handsome Bentley Houser;
    We are deeply sorry for your loss of a very well mannered young gentleman. As a neighbor for many years we watched Christian grow as a young adult into a proud father figure of his precious son, Bentley. Christian would stop over often to visit and was respectful and very well mannered. Along with his smile he also had a silly side to him and you could count on laughter for sure when he was near. God bless !!!
    *Gavin please stop over when you have a moment.
    Your neighbor,
    Joyce & Brett Chatman
