We didn't get to work together long, but I enjoyed working with you when we did. That was the hardest report that I have done in my career. I learned a lot of great things about you at the hospital, surrounded by both of your families. I remember you teasing me about ordering pineapple on my MEAT lover's pizza. I still order it and the other deputies still tease me about it. I hope you are looking down on us and keeping us safe.

We will meet again.

It was such a pleasure to know and work with you. You were always such a prepared and diligent officer. You always went above and beyond what was asked of you both inside and outside of Court. Thank you so much for hard work and dedication.

Chris it's been a long year since you were taken away from us. My mind often wanders back to happier times when you were still with us. Personally I miss the long talks we used to have in the office about our families, high school days, and our faith in God. This accident left a hole in our Sheriff's Office that we can never fill. I know you are in a better place and will watch over all of us the best you can.
