You were always the first person I could talk to about my day and what was going on in my life... God took a special person away from me.... You gave me advise not only from a Son but from a Man....

"Chris,   Today is your 2nd anniversary of the day that I lost you and for a time I felt that my life had ended too. We walked this life together a Mother and a Son. We talked, we laughed,we loved but all to soon it ended.  To some you are forgotten, to others just the past but to lost of us who loved you and lost you your memory will always last. Your death has taught me many things. Time- you never know how much you have left. That sometimes the ones you need the most will sometimes walk away. Though I'm full of sadness that you are no longer here, your love still guides me and I still feel you near. The rears I've cried could fill the earth but I know your've wiped each one away. I live for your brother Robert and your niece Adelyn now and thats what keeps me going on this journey called life.. You will always be a Son, a Brother, A Uncle and a friend now and forever....  Mom"

"For Chris's 1 yr. Anniversary in Heaven: I always took for granted that as a parent that I would be first, but in our family lifes order got reversed. Not only have a lost a son, I've lost my best friend to. For a long time it was just the 2 of us. We stumbled and we laughed but at the end of the day I wouldn't of wanted it any other way. My heart is still broken but you will never be forgotten. As long as I m living I will carry you with me. A picture of you in my mind, a memory of you in my soul. I will love you and talk about you till I take my last breath on this earth. Your light will always shine, a glowing ember never stilled throughtout the end of time. No matter what the future brings or what lies ahead, I know that you will walk aside of me along the path I tread. So rest my angel be at peace and let your soul fly free. Ond day I'll join you on your glorious flight for all eternity.    Love MOM"

My 1st Mothers Day without you.Without your smile and kind soul who was the best son a Mother could ever ask for., I know you living the life now with no pain, no worries and no judgement.

"Its hard to believe that just 6 months ago you left us. Feels like forever for Kelly and I. Our lives have changed so much since you been gone. No more Wednesday breakfast in winter that we all enjoyed. In less you walked our shoes don't judge. I used to think why people couldn't get on with their lives after losing a child and now I know. You carry them for 9 months and they are your world forever because you are their Mother. You would give your live for theirs in a heartbeat. Walk in front of a truck to save them. Its just the Mother instinst we have in us . It will get better in time but right now life is standing still. I remember the very last picture I have of you. The day your niece Adelyn was born. How she got cheated out of a great Uncle. She will never know the real Chris and the kind soul and love you had for children. Always wishing you had one of your own. Always missing the one you would of had yrs ago..... God has a plan but I don't know what it is yet . I'm watching over Kelly and Lena for you., I know you would want that. In happy times and sad times I know that you loved her with all your heart. Missing you to the moon and back son..............."

"If I knew it was the last time I would of seen you I would of gave you a hug and kiss and called you back for just one more. If I knew it was the last time I would of had breakfast with you I would of ordered 2 more times just to make it last....... Oh, how I must our times.... Mom"

"Chris, I thought about you today and remembered what a great son you always were to me and how no matter what life through at us we always made it through things together. I miss that... You were with me for most of your life before you met Kelly. I wish I could have a sign from you what you want me to do.... I'm lost and I need you so very much. My life is in trouble again and I need you so much. Sometimes I feel I can't go on. That life just gets so hard sometimes that it isn't worth going on sometimes.... You were my rock and now I don't have one. People have come and gone but they have their own lives to live and my is just standing still. I know you would want me to go on but its so very hard. We always had some much fun, you, me, Kelly and Lena. Kelly is so much like me that's why we got along so good. She reminds me of me when your Dad was gone and I had to take on Mom and Dad but I didn't do the best job. I wish I would of known the darkness you must of felt to get in so deep.... Take care my precious... Love you from here to the moon and back..."

"Happy Birthday Chris as you celebrate your 1st birthday in heaven. To the world I am ok but when I'm alone I am the real me,. A Mother that is so very heartbroken and misses you so much. I remember that day like it was yesterday. The day you took your last breath in front of me. I'll continue on this journey called life but it won't be easy but how could it be, you were a big part of my life and big part of my heart. People don't understand and I pray they never will. A loss of a child is a loss like no other.  MOM"

"Chris I cannot even begin to tell you how much I miss you. People say that it gets easier with time,but I dont see how that is true. With every day that passes my heart hurts and misses you even more. You were my soul mate and my best friend.  As your birthday approaches it breaks my heart to know that all you talked about for months with helena is how you wanted a ps4 for the two of you to play. Helena is planning a birthday party for you and getting your favorite ice cream cakw.i want you to know that I wake up and fall asleep everyday with you on my mind. I love you and miss you every day. I know you are here with me and lena cuz I feel you here with us. I just ask that you watch over and keep our baby girl safe. I love you baby."
