When a senseless tragedy like our son’s death occurs, a lot of time is spent wondering why such a horrific thing could possibly have happened. That question is, of course, unanswerable. As the minister said during his memorial service, “It is not for us to ask ‘Why?’ but for us to ask ‘WHAT NOW?’.”

Thus, we address this to you, the reader. There are several things you can do to keep Chris’ spirit alive:

  • First, if you see someone without a smile, give him one of yours. Chris was well known for his smile and for his ability to cheer someone up if they were not having a good day.
  • Second, if you see someone having difficulty, go and HELP (or find someone else to help if you cannot)!
  • Last, remember that life is short—we never know when it will end—so always LIVE YOUR DASH!!!
