From the first time we lived next door to Chris on Locust to the second time we were neighbors, we enjoyed knowing Chris and then his family. I also had the pleasure of teaching Kathryn dance. We pray for the family and friends and hope that they will find comfort in knowing that Chris is in a better place now.
