Tribute to Chris

On this day six years ago, Sunday March 2nd, 2008, our beloved Chris passed from this world.  This year, my tribute to Chris is in the form of photos over the years.  They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so please enjoy:

    Every time I see these pictures – they bring tears to my eyes and an ache in my heart – but then I think of the love and good times he brought to my sister and the kids and grandkids – and to all of us – and it makes me smile real big… Chris was truly one-of-a-kind… He will NEVER be forgotten… xo

    I too am swarmed with a mix of emotions as I look at these pictures again. In the end all the happy memories win out and bring a smile to my face.
