My daddy was a great man with a huge heart. He could comfort me with his huge hugs and I always felt so loved and so safe in his arms. He was so patient and always concerned about me. His voice was always so soothing to hear when I was upset. I can’t tell you one thing I will miss the most about him because I will miss everything about my daddy. I am very thankful for everyone's support and kind words for me and my family because we have lost a great man, but we carry all his memories forever in our hearts.

It saddens our heart to hear of Christophers passing. We give our deapest sympathy to his wife, his children, his mother Vicky, sister Jennifer, and the rest of his family and friends during thier time of grief. I was blessed to know him in many ways first off as his uncle and sometimes to included to help raise him. He was a boy that grew into a good man, husband, and father. We will turly miss him even though he is now in the hands of God.

Vic, we are so sad and shocked to learn of Chisopher's passing. We send our love from California to comfort the Fry and Deville family. We can't imagine what that loss must feel like and pray and lift you up to release you from the emotional and physical pain you have endured. Loosing so many loved ones in your lifetime has been such a test of faith. I hope you feel the love and know that you can call on us whenever you need. We love you ❤ . Becky

Dear children and family of Christopher,
I am so sorry for the loss of your father, so young, with so much life yet ahead to live and share with his family.
We may wonder why? Or if there is anything to look forward to?
Jesus well knew the Bible statement:" Time and unforeseen occurrence befall them all"[Ecclesiastes 9:11]. He knew that
sometimes bad things just happen.
The wonderful future resurrection hope is the promise found at John 5:28,29.
Revelation 21:3,4 states that in the future ' death will be no more. and pain
will be no more, the former things will have passed away.'
Our Creator, Jehovah God, by means of his son Jesus, is going to undo the tragedies that touch our lives today and we will be able to welcome back onto the paradise earth,our loved ones who have fallen asleep in death.
sincerely dianne mullins rn
