Lisa and kids, it’s been fifteen years, and I have watched all of you grow from sad, grieving family members to strong, handsome, beautiful people. In the beginning, you all dealt with Chris' death in your own way, but I have seen a wonderful change that has brought you closer and more conscious of each other. In good times and bad, family may be the only thing we can depend on. The strength that each one of you has shown the world is to be admired. You are resilient, patient, loving, and compassionate - just the way Chris would want you all to be in his absence. Actually he is still with us. Every time you think of your husband and your father, he will be there looking over his family and protecting them as any good father and trooper would.

God bless you all and thinking of yas,

I just read your message to me on my dad's page and your words are so kind. You have been there for me for the past few month with all that I am going through. Your words of wisdom touch me more then you know. Just when I think I cant go on, you say something and make me a fight harder. I always turned to you and you never turened me away, you are always there for me.The support of you and your parents is truly amazing and helps more then you know. You are a great person and I know that Chris is so proud of you. Your kids are beautiful and they are so respectful and just fun loving kids. You are a great mother and you should be proud of yourself. I am glad that we are getting closer. I will always be there for you. I hope you know that.
I did not know you but I have learned so much about you. You were a great husband, father and Trooper. Be proud of Lisa. She is doing her best and she is going a great job, but you know that already. Your children are beautiful. Keep my Dad company up there and we will all meet in time

I so know when I look over my shoulder, you are giving me your nod of approval. I hope your proud of how I am raising our children, they turned out to be fine young adults.

I know you know, I would never go down easy, always the fighter that I am. I will always land on my feet.
