    Chris was one of the greatest friends I could ever hope to have. He would listen to me and try to give me advice. He would laugh with me and joke with me and I always had a good time with him. I will miss him more than I can ever say.

    Mike and Linda,
    I am so sorry to hear about Chris. He was always a sweet kid. I remember him being so little when you started at Kmart and later when he worked as a stock-boy. I saw him at The Island a couple of years ago and he actually remembered me and my then married name of Scott. I am so very sorry. All of you are in my thoughts and prayers.

    I met Chris as a friend of my younger brother and he became like my own brother through the years and a great friend. He will be missed by myself and many more who knew him but most of all his family. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this trying time but know Chris is now in Heaven giving Dale Earnhardt Sr. a run for his money.

    I just don’t know where or how to begin. Chris, as everyone knows, was a wonderful person. He would give you the shirt off his back. I have so many memorable stories of him. Some sad, happy, crazy, and I will cherish them all. He and Jill even introduced me to a very nice man cause he didn’t like me being alone. I’m really sorry for his family right now can’t imagine what their going through. I will see you one more time, I will tell you goodbye and to look for me when I join you in HEAVEN. Much love and sadness.

    I first met Chris when we both started as temps at Hendrickson trailer. We always got along and I was lucky enough to call him my friend. I spent a lot of time talking with him about every subject imaginable when we carpooled all of last winter. I will miss our conversations and will also miss his friendship. Rest in peace my friend…

  20. Gena Carson October 21, 2013 at 11:10 pm

    My heart is breaking for your loss. Although I haven’t talked to Chris in years I will never forget going to Sunday School with him at Pastor Browns church when we were children. May God bring peace and comfort to his family, friends, and all those who knew and loved him

  21. Eric and Gayla Davis October 22, 2013 at 12:21 am

  22. Renee Pickett October 22, 2013 at 1:22 am

    I only had the pleasure of meeting Chris one time I believe. He seemed to be such a nice guy with always something clever or funny to say. I am so sorry for Jill and the rest of his family. RIP Chris a.k.a. Sleepy

    I met Chris at Emerson and we became great friends, I could talk to him and he could talk to me, I don’t think there was anything we didn’t talk about. He worked at the liquor store for me for a while to help me out. He was such a great guy always wanting to help. I loved being around him. I will miss him so much. RIP My Dear Friend.

  25. Larry and Judy Stockberger October 22, 2013 at 5:59 pm

    Linda and Mike, I am so sorry to hear that Chris had passed away, he will be missed. He was always such a polite young man, and I liked working with him at Kmart. I just can’t believe he is gone, such a good life cut short. Our prayers and thoughts are with you at this time.

  26. Michelle Ball October 22, 2013 at 9:20 pm

    My thoughts and prayers are with all of the family, as I know this is a terrible blow and Chris will be missed tremendously. I still have fond memories of how sweet Chris was when we were younger. I didn’t have an opportunity to see him over the past several years, but I know he was a wonderful son and brother. I pray for God to give you all peace and strength in this very difficult time.

  27. Garry and Brenda Fisher October 22, 2013 at 11:46 pm

    Linda, Mike and Brenda and I are very sorry to hear about Chris. We are very sorry we cannot be there, but we don’t live in Frankfort anymore. Our prayers are with you and your family. We will have your family placed on our pray chain at our church. May God be with you and your family in the long days you have in front of you. I know God will take good care of Chris, and you will all see him some day.

  28. Robert A. Hill October 23, 2013 at 9:29 pm

    I have had the luckiest chances to meet Chris every time he would meet at my brothers house for some kind of family gathering and the occasional trip to the Brickyard 400. He will be dearly missed by all members of my family as we considered him as one of the members of our extended family. Mike, Linda and Mindy you will be in our thoughts and prayers through these times of turmoil. Rest in peace Chris, I hope to meet you again.

  29. Shandel King October 23, 2013 at 10:17 pm

    So sorry for the loss of a very sweet, nice guy. My heart goes out to Chris’s faimly and friends.

  30. Lucinda and Gary Horn October 24, 2013 at 12:03 am

    I am so sad that we had to lose yet another member of our family to tragic circumstances and he will be greatly missed by those left behind. I was just becoming close to him and don’t understand why that had to come to such an abrupt end. I will forever miss my dancing partner and we will dance again when we meet in heaven! Until then, keep the family together and in line up there and I will join you someday, so save me a dance! Love you forever….

  31. Kathy (Rogers) Denniston October 24, 2013 at 12:13 am

    Linda, Mike & Mindy, I was in shock when I got the text from our daughter Becky on Friday night. When our kids had their heart attacks one in April and one in May, Chris was one who was always sending messages asking about Becky and Aaron. His kind words meant a lot. Your family will be on our church prayer list. May God give you comfort and peace the times ahead. You will see Chris again I’m very sure.
