Condolence & Memory Journal

I was blessed to know both Chrises (as we knew them) and actually attended their wedding. Both were kind and caring people.

I was so very sorry to hear of Chris's passing. He corresponded with me regularly in the past few years and his jokes always brought a smile to my face. He was always kind and caring, and I will miss him dearly. And yes, I believe he was the longest serving member of the Massachusetts Civil Air Patrol when he passed away.
