    To Chris’s family…I didn’t know Chris, but my heart goes out to all of you. I know you loved him. When my sister died a few years ago, someone told me…”You’ll never get over this but, with God’s help, you’ll get through it.” It’s true and I hope you find peace. I know Chris has.

    Chris and I played together at UT, he was a great guy. One of my fondest memories, is of me taking him to get his first car. We shared some great times at UT, and I will truly miss him.
