    I want to send my condolences to Stacy Nelson and their two kids, I have not (as far as I can remember) met the entire family or known them long. Chris was an amazing friend, son, father, husband, and uncle (to me). He is in a better place now living with the Lord, his mom, his dad and his brother too. He is watching over everyone that loved him dearly, and making sure that his close family and friends are safe and in no danger. He will be in my heart forever and I loved him like an uncle, He will be greatly missed but never forgotten. God has a plan and a reason for everything and for everyone but he has taken chris on his own reason and we dont know why just yet. Its never goodbye, its always see you soon. One day we all will see chris again and we will see him how we all remember of him.

    I love and miss you chris

    Rest in peace now uncle

    Love always and forever your niece
