Condolence & Memory Journal

He is our "Cardinal". Everyday, a red cardinal comes to me in my backyard while I drink my coffee. It lingers for some time and I know Chris' spirit is with us. I miss you dear brother, very much, and I'll love you always.

Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal. Death is only a horizon, and a horizon is nothing save the limit of our sight. Toni, Cia, Nick, John, Mr. and Mrs. Milonas I'm thinking of you and all of your family tonight and praying for peace in your hearts. I love you all very much. Chris was always so funny and holds a very warm place in my heart. I couldn't ask for a better guy to pick on me back in-the-day. I would have driven up to SC had I not just gotten home this late afternoon and found out. I'm so sorry.

Life Stories

I have soooooo many stories I could share. Everytime I was with Chris was a hilarious, joyful time! I always madesure to have my "Depends" on when I was with him because we were constantly gut laughing. He was an inspiration, a friend a Cousin an most of all a brother! My life will never be the same without him. I miss you and love you so much Chris. All My Love Forever.... Karen (Maria)

There are so many stories I can tell you about. I shared most of my time with him making lasting memories I now treasure. I remember us making a video for the hunting club in Florence and Chris always made me laugh. He put a squirrel tail in the back of his hat and we discussed what tree stand was open and club membership costs it was halarious. I know I will miss songs he sang playing his guitar and poking fun about my name. He was truly a brother to me in so many ways and I will truly miss him.
