    10 yrs have passed since your mother had her heart broken into a million pieces. Your dad lost his first born son and a bit of himself as well. The healing has come slowly but it will never be quite the same. You are not forgotten and never will be.

    Ten years. Ten years since your nightly phone calls at 2am while you were in drive-thru at Taco Bell. Ten years since I heard your Stewie impersonation. Ten years without stories of you being chased by wild dogs, or your sudden need for new undergarments. I don't know who misses you more, me or the stores that sold you new Playstation controllers every two weeks or so.

    April 18, 2016. You are now 38 years old. Ten years have passed since we last saw you. The pain is ever so fresh... IU's Jacobs School of Music is honoring all 5 of you with the Beethoven 9th again. The 1st time was just after the accident when all 5 of you made the stationary chandeliers sway. I truly hope to see that this year. I do know you'll be with us in spirit. I love you Christy. Miss you so. (You would so love Atticus)

    You are 37 years old today, though to the world, you will forever be 28. Forever 28 and 2 days... I will miss you and love you always and forever. Always my baby you'll be.

    Well, my darling boy, you are now an uncle. Uncle Chris...we'll never hear those words. I know you have been here in spirit to be with and visit David's son, Atticus Bates. Your sign was so profound when I saw it. While getting water to water the plants after our 3 week trip to David's in LA, I was astounded to see my Christmas Cactus, that has not bloomed since Christmas 2007, in full bud with over a dozen flower buds. Many are now in full bloom. It had not bloomed for many years but at Christmas 2006 it had one blossom. Again in April 2007 at your birthday time, it had again 1 blossom. Then at Christmas 2007 it bloomed again with 2 blossoms. I know in my heart that you have filled this plant with beautiful blossoms to let us know how happy you are for Atticus' arrival and to ease my heart that you will be his Guardian Angel and be with him always. My heart is full...

    I realize you already know from your vantage point above us, but I have the need to write to you. Putting things in writing for me is like having a conversation with you. David and Hope are having a baby in February! While I feel much joy in this news, my heart aches because you won't be here in the flesh to share this wonderful event. I know you will be the best uncle in the history of mankind. When I wrote that on your fb page, so many of your family and friends shared their feelings about this. Greg wrote the most wonderful tribute to you about the things you would have done for this much loved child. I laughed and cried at the same time reading about the kinds of things you would do with and for our first grandchild. Please keep watch over Hope, David and the baby...I know you already are. I love and miss you more than you know. My precious first born...

    I bought the house Chris grew-up in. Although I never met him I think of him often. My wife and I try to fill this home with as much love and happiness for our two boys as Chris' parents and we hope that we can come close to doing as good a job as they did. Thank you for posting his music, I'm sure it felt good for the old walls to hear his voice again.

    As your 36th birthday approaches tomorrow, I need to tell you how very much your family misses you. When the calendar turns to April, it becomes so much harder to breathe. Remembering consumes the mind and continues to break the heart. We love you so and long for what can never be in this world. Know that you are much loved.
