Chris' story is a story of a life cut short for many reasons. Those reasons include alcohol, illegal drugs and mental illness. Our life will never be the same without him.
We grieve the loss of the grandchildren we would never have, and the daughter-in-law that we would never have. His alcohol abuse enabled him to complete his suicide. His use of the illegal drug Ecstasy could have been what triggered his Schizophrenia.
We have peace from God knowing that he is in his care now, and we know we will see him again. "History cannot be rewritten, but it may not have to be repeated."
We love you Chris, you are forever in our hearts.
