Christopher, my son. Forever a piece of my heart and soul. The smile, the charm, the wonderful hugs and laughter that I'll never forget. The addiction that took you from us.
The son who showed the most love. The brother who would always have your back. The uncle who got you the best candy and toys. The grandson who called just to check in. The student, the athlete who gave it their all. You, Christopher, were this person. Your journey here on earth was short. Your memories are in my heart forever.
Christopher was quite the student and athlete. He seem to excel quite quickly. After high school he tried college for a while, but soon decided working and making money was his passion. He was totally dedicated to his job. I guess all along he had an addictive personality. He loved to travel no matter where the job took him. It was then and there the opioid addiction came into his life. Whenever he was home he continued to work on projects for us. Building things, cooking fabulous meals, remodeling, no project was too hard or big. Always staying busy to try to beat the habit. We know you wanted to be clean. We know the struggle was hard and deep. Always wanting to please those around him. Always making the day brighter, happier. We all believed that this would be the year of being clean for a whole year, but that knock on the door proved us all wrong. At work far away Fentanyl would be the final culprit. The struggle was over, the wanting the desire to be clean had come full circle. You are pure and clean now rest my son.
Lynn Gray your mom forever
