I’m so very sorry to hear of the loss of your brother. We were in the same
class in school and I remember him always with a smile. My deepest condolences to you and your family.

My heart is broken. I've known Chris most of my life and for all these years he has been a dear friend to my dad Felix. It's true, he was larger than life and an amazing human. Heaven gained one of the good ones. RIP Chris. Thank you for everything. Sending prayers of peace to his loved ones.
