"Hey Daddy its your babygirl. I will be 20 in a few weeks and I realize im grown up now and its not as fun without you here.I would give anything just to hear your voice again. Not a day goes by that I dont say I wish my dad was here. I havent dealt with this that well but I have to do what you always told me to do and "Keep my head up". Its been 8 long years and it still feels like just yesterday you were taken from me. But I love you and I will always be "Daddy's Little Girl" R.I.P Daddy"

"What can I say about Chris.....I was fortunate to have known him the short time I did. We had many conversations....about sports, about work, about relationships, and about life. I believe he thought of me not only as a friend, but as a father figure. He confided in me about everything, wanting my take on things. When he asked me to be his best man at his wedding, I was so honored that he thought of me that much. We had a special bond. His spirit was like no other, his attitude and outlook couldn't be shaken, his presence was over the top, and his laugh was infectious. I look at your picture every single morning and think of you every day.....and smile. You are still winning Chris. Love you always.God bless your soul always. RIP my friend."

""In Memory" never gets easier to know you are not a phone call away, what I do have are wonderful memories of a man who in death like in life always looks after his family, I talk to him every night, and can hear him loud as day when times get tough, "are you a straukas or not" always brings me thru standing right where I need to be!!!! Rip Chris Straukas forever in our hearts!!!!!!"

R.I.P Strauk.Love you bro!

"I talk to him about how good or bad Michigan is doin.(mostly bad lately). I painted a house by where he left us at this summer, and all I could think about when not concentrating on my customers project was how much mess he would be talking about the job. Even though it was perfectly executed. I think about going to secor golfin in the cobra (speed limit always, music turned down ;-) ). His laugh echoesin my mind. U will never b forgotten. And im glad....   unewme9"
