My memory being around Chris was so much fun walking to the store to get chocolate milk and then back to his house Grab the fishing poles and go to the pond in the back yard and fish all day, Wake up the next day and do it all over again. Could not of had more fun than that anywhere in the world.. Your fishing bro doesn't forget good people like you. We all love and Miss you
