This has come as a major shock to us, as we just recently were talking with him about making plans to go out to the lake and have a BBQ and do some fishing. Chris was a great friend ti both of us!! My condolences to all of your family and also to his fiance, Lotoya Todd.
We lived above Chris at the apartments,spoken with him a few times seemed to be a very nice guy.Our prayers are with the family God bless.
My heart goes out to all of Chris’ family. This is such a loss. I hope that you all will remember the good times that you shared with Chris. His memory will live on through all of you.
