  • Dear Kristopher, I miss you extremely much!! You were one of my best freinds cause you were like no other. You were always so caring and full of empathy and compassion and you always put others before yourself. I could never express the way I felt about you with words but I wish that I had the chance to tell you what a great guy you really were. I know I am never going to find another freind like you. A male freind to top it off! You had alot going for you! And very gifted with many different talents and you never thought you were. I hope and pray that God in His great mercy has you in His arms right now!! That you see all your family and those who really loved you!! I don’t believe death is the end, and that being said “I love you and will see you again” !! John 3:16 For God so loved the world (Kristopher) that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever (Kristopher) believeth in Him, shall have everlasting life.” (((Kristopher)))!!!!! See you soon!! Your family is in my prayers! Rest for now, in peace.

  • Dear Kris,
    I miss you so much. I thought you would always be there, and we would be driving each other crazy till the end of time. Your passing was so sudden, it all seems like a bad joke. Especially, due to the fact that our relationship was on the mend n we were getting closer again. It’s hard not to be selfish and want you here, but I am happy for you because I know you are in a better place. Little things I will always remember, like the feeling of your go-t rubbing on my face when hugged us, or listening to u play the drums, or watching you chase the kids around, the delicious food you would cook, even the gorgeous painting you did. You were so talented and so caring. Your children are all so devastated by this, but I promise to do my best to take care of them for you. I’d appreciate a little help from heaven, help me watch over them, and rest in peace my love.
