Kris, your laughter and smile is missed every day. You a thought of often and talked about among friends. You always had a funny story or a joke to make the day seem more bearable and worth the effort. I had the greatest opportunity to be able to work with you. Know that everyone you touch in your life still keeps you in their lives everyday. Every time I drive through BF, I remember some of the "trouble" you and I would get into. You are greatly missed. Good night my brother. I know you are doing well where you are, giving your advice to those around you, whether they need it or not.
