sorry to hear about Chris' passing. He was a good friend of mine in high school and brought joy to many people with his great sense of humor. He will be missed.
It is with great sadness I learned of Chris's passing...I have many fond memories working with him in the 'old days' at McDonald's in Cortland when we were kids...he was always funny, smiling, entertaining and generous and I pass my deepest condolences on to his family. Nanci
