Brenda and Gil, I so sorry that Chris' page is subjected to thoughtless postings of spam!
Although I didn't know Chris except through the stories you shared with me at work
through the years, he sounded like a very caring and compassionate young man. Know
that you and Gil are always in my thought during those anniversaries and are lifted up in
prayers of comfort and peace. Chris' plant is still thriving in the office. Agape, Van

memories of you. You were such a kind and generous person Love and miss you!

Good morning son. It's been seven years. In some ways it feels like an eternity
and in others it feels like yesterday. Today brings rain, not snow like that day.
I miss you so much. The course of life was changed that day but you live
forever in my heart.

 


September 06, 2015

It's my birthday and I'm missing your big bear hug!

 


September 04, 2015

Good morning Chris! Haven't been here in a while. Missing
you a little extra today. Life continues to change and that is
normal and good. Just wish it was changing with you in it.
Almost seven years and I miss you so much!

cardinal for the tree that tweets with movement. I pretend its a
little part of you here with us today. I miss you!

 


October 28, 2014

It's hard to believe it has been six years. The question that will never be
answered is "why"?" I love and miss you so much.

 


October 28, 2014

Six years ago today the Lord decided to take you from this world. You are
missed every day.

You are missed.

Good morning son and happy birthday! I hope you have found 4 wheelin trails

in heaven. I love you and miss you every day. I was surprised to see the

message below when I opened your site today. Too bad you had to be one of

those lives lost too soon.

 


April 04, 2014

The picture of Chris that you can see to the right of this guestbook is
part of a large framed picture that is hanging in the lobby of the
Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. The framed picture is
entitled "Trucky Safety Coalition Victims of Truck Crashes."

Under all the pictures which includes Christopher LaRoche there is an
inscription that says: "In this collage appear the faces of truck crash
victims who died on our highways. One life lost is one too many.
Together we must stop the loss."

This was presented to the Federal Motor Carrier Safefty Administration
by the Truck Safety Coalition in December 2009.

Happy Birthday to Chris on April 5th.

January 02, 2014

Hey Chris , It's been awhile since I have talked to you. Im sorry its technologies
fault , have that problem fixed. Now If I could get a little help from you and
the man upstairs, I pray everyday for my family to be able to go back to being
happy again , you see my daughter Shannon and my son Timmy and my two
grandkids Isaiah and Lilyana need your help to get through some rough times.
Its just not fair how the bad guys always get there way. Do you think you could
help out the good guys we need to be happy again Please If you are able I
would be so Thankful !!I I tried to wish you a Merry Christmas !!! But like I said
I was having Technical Difficulties .. It frustrated me but Im glad I figured it
out. Miss you so much I could really use a game of that softball and a night out
at Mikes Bar and Grill after we win that game. I so miss those days we had so
much fun !! Also help the Eagles out we are in the playoffs Yeeh Hah !! And
help us get to the Superbowl and finally win one for us Philly Fans ! Well I often
wonder everyday what you guys do up in Heaven , I just hope Yah all are having
a blast !! Well Happy New Year And I will keep in touch !! Lots of Love , Your

Good morning Chris. It's your brother's 33rd birthday. Please send him some
love today. We all need some, but I think he needs it the most. Things always
seem to be challenging us and they say you don't get more than you can handle
but it would be nice to have complete calm for a while. I miss you so much
and not a day goes by when I don't think about you and the life you could have
had.

Happy Birthday Chris we all miss you and love you so much. I know I'm a little
late on the birthday wish but I was celebrating with Pat since yesterday was his
birthday also. I'm having trouble sleeping because I have been worried about my
friend Venus who has been sick. I know you didn't know her but could you watch
over her. The more angels she has on her side from heaven will greatly guide her
through this rough time in her life. I know your always smiling down and
watching over all of your family. You are always in our thoughts. With lots of
love your sister in law, Pat, Alyssa and Ashley.

Missing you soooooooooooooooooooo much!!!! Even though you'll always be in
my heart, I wish I could hug you. So much change in the four years since you
left us. It's little Ian Christopher's birthday today. He's so cute. You would
have had a great time with him. He brings joy to heart that was broken by
your passing. I love you son.

It was not easy having the jeep leave. Dad and I hugged and cried. But the new owner seems like
a nice young guy and is very excited to have it. I think he'll take good care of it. Love you.

Can't get you off my mind this morning. Love you always. Tina's Granny's has joined you and ask the
bigguy to send "the brat" a little extra dose of love and blessing today-- her birthday.

I wonder if the tears will ever stop. I miss you so much.

 


June 28, 2012

People are looking at the Jeep. If we sell it, it's going to be hard to actually
see it drive away. A lot like the day, Crystal and I watched your truck leave
the driveway. I hope you have all your toys in heaven. Sure wish I still had you
on earth!

 


June 24, 2012

The years and the days go by and I still miss you so much!!! Life goes on,
people get older and the memory of you stays the same. You live in my heart
but it's just not the same as seeing your smile and getting your hug. Love you
my son!

Everyday I still ask why??? It seems so unfair but as we know life isn't fair. I'm
sure you are having a great time with a lot of good people--farming with Uncle
Royce, hanging with Keith, doing things with Cindy, etc. I just wish you were
here so we could enjoy time with you. I have lots of things on my mind these
days and wish you were here. Be our angel and watch over all of us and ask
the "Big Guy" for help when we need it!!!! I love you and miss you!!!!!!

I printed family pictures from Pat and Stacy's wedding and Jeremy and Tina's
wedding to put on the mantel. How our family has grown but the most
noticeable thing is that you are in Jeremy and Tina's wedding picture but
missing from Pat and Stacy's. It is also so sad to think that your wedding
picture will never be there. I miss you every day bud. I love you!!

 


January 02, 2012

Years have gone by but I still think about you often. I wanted to leave
something for you at the cemetery last time I went but the only thing I had in
my car was a little plastic lizard. I left it for you anyways. I still miss you,
my friend.

Hi bud! Things have been pretty tough lately! I hope things settle down now

It's cousin Keith's birthday today. We lost him at 31 and he'd be 46 today. I

I miss you!!! The holidays are so tough without you! Still too many tears. I
wonder if they will ever stop.

 


December 14, 2011

Four years ago today we bought our house!!! There are times that things
get rough and I don't know how I have managed to hold on to it for so long
without you, but I have. There are some pretty big projects creeping up
and I hope I can find away to get through them too!

Hey Chris, still miss those days when we were younger, and all the fun
times we had. Wish we could go back and do it all again. Some of the
best memories I have as a kid are with you and your family. Was just
thinking about when we capsized the boat and had to drag the boat
to shore. Good times! I will write again soon!

In the flowing of the wind and in the chill of winter, we remember them
In the opening of buds and in the rebirth of spring, we remember them
In the blueness of the sky and in the warmth of summer, we remember them
In the rustling of leaves and in the beauty of autumn, we remember them
In the beginning of the year and when it ends, we remember them
In the rising of the sun and in its going down, we remember them
When we are weary and in need of strength, we remember them
When we are lost and sick at heart, we remember them
When we have joy we yearn to share, we remember them
So long as we live, they too shall live, for they are now a part of us, as we
remember them.

Chris you live in our hearts. We love you and miss you.

Good morning son. I'm listening to Big & Rich's new song, Fake ID, and their
music reminds me so much of you. Having a bad day and missing you big time.
Oh no, I thought I was just listening to Fake ID and guess what song just came
on --Lost in This Moment. Life can be so unfair! Almost three years later and
it still hurts.

 


October 05, 2011

Good morning son. I wish you were here to go to the retirement celebration
with the rest of us. I want to say thanks to you like I will to everyone else
today. I know it wasn't easy for the family to move as much as we did and you
guys were always there to support me and my job. Thank you for being such a
great kid. I love you and miss you.

 


September 28, 2011

So far there is only one bad part to retirement. I have more time to think
about you and to miss you. So many people I know are burying their children. I
learned two people who I worked with that just lost sons at 39 and 41. While
not as young as you, still way too young and no parent should every have to
lose a child. You are missed so much!!!!

 


September 13, 2011

Had a Chris moment with Ian yesterday. He was being very fussy so I picked up your picture that's on the porch where you are in the pool on one of your vacations to show him. I started crying and he stopped crying and being fussy so we just held hands for a little while. Miss ya bud!

 


September 12, 2011

Give Cindy a big hug for me and make sure you go bowling with her! It has been a long time since her league days and I'm sure should would love it!

Shoppy came to get the hottub today. Dad got to see the tatoo he has in your memory. Also brought new flowers to the cemetary. Jade put a butterfly in them for you. Love you

 


August 29, 2011

you'd be amazed. the house withstood the earthquake and the hurricane as if they never happened!!!

 


August 28, 2011

Crazy times. Earthquake, hurricane and crazy gunman all in one week. Love you and miss you.

 


August 19, 2011

Hey Bud!! Folks aren't writing to you as much. Mom has finally decided to
retire. It's bittersweet. I had so much support from the HUD family when we
lost you. Sure wish you were here for my retirement years. I love you so much
and miss you every day.

 


August 01, 2011

You now have all of Crystal's grandparents with you. Watch over all of
them for her.

 


July 25, 2011

I had a dream about your Jeep... odd. Brought back so many memories and at the end I had my own Jeep. You always hear people say that it is the little things that mean the most - never realized how true that was but now I completely understand!!!

Crystal

 


July 04, 2011

Happy 4th Chris! Miss you terribly! Wish Grandma a happy belated birthday
(yesterday) and Grandma and Grandpa a happy anniversary (today). Sure wish
you were here or as the song goes that heaven wasn't so far away. Love you!!!!

Sure missed you yesterday evening!! You should have been there to share in
your brother's joy. I know you were in spirit but it's just not the same as having
you here. Family celebrations will always have a hole. I miss you so darn
much. Your death has so impacted who I am. I think I am just beginning to
realize that. Love you, Mom.

 


May 24, 2011

Wish it wasn't so but tonight will make the 3rd memorial award presented in your honor! You would be proud! Someday I will present again, promise!

Missing you tons!

Good morning son. A lot going on here and I sure wish you were here. Tina's
sister getting married today so it has been very hectic for them and Pat and
Stacy are getting married next weekend so lots going on with them as well. So
Mom and Dad have been very busy too. Work for both of us is extremely
stressful and we both miss you so much. Dad went by the accident site this
week so that along with lots of other things made the week extra hard for Dad
in the "missing you Department". Missing you and loving you until we meet
again.

Mom

 


May 19, 2011

No matter how many people wish me a happy birthday each year, there
will forever be one missing.

 


May 08, 2011

Missing my son this Mother's Day. Instead of you popping by the house
with a swan in your hand (even though I don't know if you could fine
one this year), I'll be visiting you at the cemetary and bringing you the
swan. Love you and miss you.

Mom

P.S. Give both your grandmother and memere big hugs for all of us.

 


April 25, 2011

Sure wish you were here and we were celebrating your wedding
anniversary today. Jade has been keeping me company. I miss you
every day! Love Mom.

 


April 25, 2011

Happy Easter!

Sorry I'm a day late - the day was hectic to say the least.
Please keep watch over Uncle Bill. He could use it.
Give my MomMom and PopPop a hug for me! <3

Yet again the weather is beautiful on what should have been a day to remember for the both of us.

Good morning son. It's one of those days when tears are on the agenda. I was on facebook looking at Crystal's pictures. All the wonderful memories of you and her together and all your dreams are there. As much as I miss you, it really really stinks that you guys were robbed of that wonderful life together--a wedding, children and growing old together. I love you so much son and I miss you so darn much!!!! It just isn't suppose to be like this!

 


January 20, 2011

Good morning buddy! It's been a long week. Dad and I both have been sick and I'm missing you terribly today. One of those days when it's tougher than others. It's still hard to believe that I will live the rest of my life without you here. I love you and miss you.

Hey Chris , Its your friend Corrine I need your help if you could please look after my family for me, we are going through a rough time right now I know you are watching over alot of people right now and your busy but if you could please be our guardian angel too.

Your family on earth continues to miss you each and every day. Life goes on but it will never be quite the same. There are so many good memories and we hold on to them but at the same time I think about how many more there could have been. I love you.

I miss those days so badly.. It was my last birthday with you by my side.. I am so grateful that it was so good!

Family Chain
We little knew that morning,
God was going to call your name,
In life we loved you dearly,
In death we do the same.

It broke our hearts to lose you,
You did not go alone.
For part of us went with you
The day God called you home.
You left us beautiful memories,
Your love is still our guide,
And though we cannot see you,
You are always at our side.

Our family chain is broken,
and nothing seems the same,
But as God calls us one by one,
The chain will link again.

We love and miss you, Mom, Dad, Jeremy, Tina, Jade, Ian, Pat, Stacy,
Allysa and Ashley

You had so much life to live.

Hey, wife # 2, hopefully you liked all the fireworks over the weekend. Must have looked amazing from up there. We miss you a lot and talk about you a lot...can you believe that some woman called Pat a couple of weeks ago and told him that you gave her a number for the job and she asked him to do that job for her for the price you gave her. But Pat remembered all how it went down and how much you were asking and she is totally trying to cheat!! So Pat won't talk to her anymore!!

Pat has your back, always!!! He misses you very much, it's hard sometimes for him!! He still showes me the jobs you guys did together - always - and talks about funny things u guys did together. We miss u, love u and sending you tons of hugs

Good morning son! It's Dad's birthday today and the best possible gift I could give him would be to have you here. We all continue to miss you so much. It's pretty ironic that I look at facebook today and there are two messages that really touch my heart and both relate to you. Your cousin, Amanda, wants a bus stop in heaven so we can visit the people we miss so much but that we can still come back to earth. Your big brother, Jeremy, posts that he was playing the favorite game with Jade and you came up as the favorite Uncle. So much reminds us of you everyday but it's just not the same as when you use to come through the front door and give me a hug. A year and five months since that horrible day that changed our lives forever. I love you!

I don't who Chris was, but I want you to know that he may be gone but he continue to help others... today I was looking for the word to a poem "if I should go before you" to offer words of comfort to another mother who lost her son on Dec 18, 2009 in car accident in Canda. I don't think it was a mistake that Chris' site came up.. I am so sorry for you loss, I just wanted you to know that he helped me and another mom today. Thanks Chris! I know that you are so loved!<3

Been thinking about you a lot the last couple of days. I found out last week that an old friend from high school lost her son too. He was a little older than you but from his web site seems like he is a lot like you. Maybe the two of you have become friends in heaven. Looks like he liked off roading too so maybe there's a big mud hole that the two of you are playing in. It's so weird how life goes on but our memories and time with you are stuck on the weekend before we lost you. It still is such a bad dream that I wish we could all wake of from. I so want to have you walk through the front door or pick on me the way only you could. I miss you and love you.

Happy New Year! The years come and the years go. Unfortunately, you are not here to live through them with us. 2008 was horrible because we lost you, 2009 wasn't great because the economy was horrible -- the bright side was Ian (you'd love him). Let's hope that 2010 is brighter for everyone with good health and happiness. If you have any ins up there help us out, okay? I am very thankful for my family--a great husband, three great sons and the people they have brought to our family through their love. Sending you a great big hug.

I thought by now things would be a little easier, however it is just easier to put on a front to make everyone else feel better.

The time that has gone by doesn't change anything, you still are not here. I miss hearing you, seeing you, holding you. I miss having you to talk to and spend time with. I miss everything. It was too good and was only getting better.

Hey Chris, Its Corrine last night my older son and I were standing out on the porch I was having a smoke , and this guy went running across the street and hid behind our neighbors truck and made a phone call , I thought it was one of Brucie's friends but it turned out to be this young kid turning 18 on Saturday. He was running from a fight where a bunch of kids had jumped him. He spotted Brucie and I on the porch and asked us if he could hang out with us until his Mom came to get him. He looked and acted so much like you it was craazy, he said because he was the big guy everybody went after him , but he sure took care of himself and what reminded me the most about you was how he was so concerned about his friends not himself. It was like you were saying Hello ! Then he shook our hands and said Thank you, I miss you friend . Love Corrine.

Your nephew is just great! You would love him and be eager to have him in the garage and jeep with you. Jade spent the night last night and woke up this morning crying a little and telling me how she missed you. There will always be a huge hole in all of our hearts and lives.
We all miss you.

Good morning son! I miss you so much. I look at your picture with that smile and so wish you were here to brighten our days and give us a hug. Last night I walked by one of the bars that we went to the night of the pub crawl--the one where you tried to get me to have a smoke with you. I'm so glad that we had that night together. I would have never in my wildest dreams ever imagined it would have been almost the last time I would see you. I love you!!!!

As i read through all of the messages to you, i cannot imagine losing the love of my life, my son or my brother! For whatever reason- which will always be unknown, God decided to make you a Guardian Angel. I think that's how everyone who loves and misses you has gotten to where they are today. I'm sure you have guided everyone. As the Holidays approach you will be remembered, though of, talked about and missed. Even though there will be an empty chair meant for you we all know that you will be there in spirit. It will be comforting to feel the warmth of your presence. Keep doing what you enjoy and know that you're still missed and thought of often! Manda

Chris, we were like brothers for quite some time. I miss you brother. I wish I hadn't lost touch. I remember sleeping in your old garage, hanging out all hours of the night in the freezing cold with you and Pat to go snow board down the hill across the street from your old house, Capsizing the boat in Vermont ruining my pager, having to swim all the way back to shore. I am proud to say that I have many memories of you and the fun times we shared together. I wish I was there for you and your family. I moved away from Abington and now am stationed in Kansas. I was deployed when this accident took place and just recently found out. I miss you buddy, Your (other) Brother/ Friend forever.

Chris, you are missed everyday. Not a day goes by that I don't think of you or Crystal. Tiana misses you so much aswell. She might be young but Chris made such a positive impact on her that she will always remember. Even the terrible accident has caused her to be more cautious. Many times when we are about to cross a street or go into a parking lot, Tiana would tell me how she has to be careful because she doesn't want anything to happen to her and how many people love her so she doesn't want to make mommy or daddy or anyone sad. She tells me how sad the accident made crystal and she wouldn't want to make her sad again. It makes me wanna cry that my 3 year old even understands all of that but at the same time I am happy that she is so cautious and remembers Chris. I just try to think that it is Chris looking after her and teaching her. Anyway I just wanted to say that we all miss Chris and our hearts go out to Crystal, Brenda, Gil, Jeremy, Pat, and the rest of Chris's family and friends. Thanks for being a part of our lives Chris!

Brenda,
Thinking of you and your entire family today as the year anniversary has come. I remember Chris as a little boy, what remember most of him was the weekend I spent at your house in NH when the boys were just babies. He is certainly missed by everyone and I am quite impressed by this website. Chris definately has MANY people who loved him dearly. He was certainly a wonderful person or he wouldn't have been taken so early not to mention reading e-mails from so many people who have shared their thoughts and memories.

Hoping all of you are healing as I am sure Chris will be in your thoughts and hearts forever.

Love to all,

In the flowing of the wind and in the chill of winter, we remember them
In the opening of buds and in the rebirth of spring, we remember them
In the blueness of the sky and in the warmth of summer, we remember them
In the rustling of leaves and in the beauty of autumn, we remember them
In the beginning of the year and when it ends, we remember them
In the rising of the sun and in its going down, we remember them
When we are weary and in need of strength, we remember them
When we are lost and sick at heart, we remember them
When we have joy we yearn to share, we remember them
So long as we live, they too shall live, for they are now a part of us, as we remember them.

Chris you live in our hearts. We love you and miss you.

I really missed you while we were down the shore this summer. I had so much fun with you last year when we made our run to the liquor store with the HUGE list, when we were sitting on the front porch and you were teasing Crystal with your favor ideas and how you kept harassing Mike about us getting engaged. He finally did ask me. I just wish you were around to celebrate with us. You were always so kind and funny. Please know that you are in our thoughts often.

Cause I saddle up my horse
And I ride into the city
I make a lot of noise
Cause the girls
They are so pretty
Riding up and down Broadway
On my old stud Leroy
And the girls say
Save a horse, ride a cowboy.
Everybody says
Save a horse, Ride a cowboy

What? What?
Save A Horse Ride A Cowboy
Everybody says
Save a Horse Ride a cowboy.

From a cold rainy miserable October day to a hot humid July day you
have been missed every day. How quickly life can change!! Nine
months of missing you and wishing you were here with us. So many
good memories in those 25 years, just wish we had had my lifetime
together. Your kids are suppose to be here until the Lord decides to
take you home. I so want one of your big old hugs where you
threaten to pick me up. Love you!!!!

Weekends seem the last forever - in a slow sort of way... and Mondays always seem to be difficult to get through - the pain seems to overwhelm me. I suppose it is because I realize that I am starting another week without you or it may be due to trying to supress the feelings all weekend that I just can't any more.

I started your Jeep yesterday just as I do every weekend. But with the weather as beautiful as it has been lately I had a strong urge to want to take it for a spin around the block. Of course I didn't... you know me always following the rules. It is perfect Jeep weather, you would love it! Something about just sitting in it makes me feel closer to you, though I don't belong in the driver seat. I can only imagine if I could get the wheels on the road, what that would feel like. I have been wanting to drive the Jeep for so long - that Jeep is so much a part of who you are, but it is also a part of us - so many memories! From that night down the shore.. to today... and forever!

Love you!

I miss you so much every day. There are times when we think of you
and its hard to hold back the tears--Dad and I call them "Chris
moments". There are times when I swear I can see you in places you
should be. Last week Jade was in the pool playing and I was sitting
there watching her and I looked away and when I looked back I could
see you in the water with her "saying come on swim to me brat". It
was so weird because "Freebird" was playing on the neighbors radio at
the same time.

Untitled
Mother, please don't mourn for me;
I'm still here, though you don't see.
I'm right by your side each night and day
And within your heart I long to stay.

My body is gone but I'm always near
I'm everything you feel, see or hear.
My spirit is free, but I'll never depart
As long as you keep me alive in your heart.

I'll never wander out of your sight.
I'm the brightest star on a summer night.
I'll never be beyond your reach.
I'm the warm, moist sand when you're at the beach.

I'm the colorful leaves when fall comes around
And the pure, white snow that blankets the ground.
I'm the beautiful flowers of which you are so fond.
The clear, cool water in a quiet pond.

I'm the first bright blossom you'll see in the spring;
The first warm raindrop that April will bring.
I'm the first ray of light when the sun starts to shine,
And you'll see that the face in the moon is mine.

When you start thinking there's no one to love you,
You can talk to me through the Lord above you.
I'll whisper my answer through the leaves on the trees,
And you'll feel my presence in the soft summer breeze.

I'm the hot, salty tears that flow when you weep
And the beautiful dreams that come while you sleep.
I'm the smile you see on a baby's face.
Just look for me, Mommy, I'm everyplace!

To everyone that continues to look at the site and to those that want
to share their thoughts and memories, a huge THANK YOU. While
every message brings tears to our eyes, they also warm our hearts
knowing that Chris continues to live on in each and everyone of you.
It has been a very tough spring knowing how much he would be
wanting to do things--ride in his jeep, go off-roading, go fishing, work
on their house, jump in the pool, etc. --and most importantly a
wedding and his life with Crystal. We miss him so much but it helps to
know he touched your life.

There is no day passing by without thinking of you. Even now Pat
shares some of his very funny stories that makes me think how the hell
did you guys come up with some stuff. He quite often talks about the
jobs that you guys did together. We have your picture in our dining
room, so your smile, kindness, silly stories and awesome memories stay
with us. But I can tell you that Pat misses you terribly and his life is
not the same anymore since that day. It hit him hard, because you
were there for him, you were his best friend, second wife! Almost
every afternoon around 5pm or 5:30pm you used to call Pat and I
used to answer "What's up wife number 2"!! You guys had so much
going on, big business plans together. Don't worry, Pat will get there,
but it will take a little longer. Might take longer, but you are and will
be there all the way:)

We miss you a lot
Hugs, lots of hugs...

the beginning what we had was top notch and I just want that back...

"All your clothes are hanging up
Not a things been touched, I left it all the same

You were the reason that I breathe"

Good morning Chris. You are just everywhere aren't you? We went to
a fund raiser for Aunt Cindy last night and you certainly were there in
many people's hearts and on many people's minds. Crystal's Uncle Mike
dedicated the last song of the night to you. Since it was a fund raiser
we did our share and ended up winning many things. Things that
certainly were Chris related--lots of palm trees and toothpicks to
name a couple.

Love you lots and miss you terribly.

Why did he have to go
So young I just don't know why
Things happen half the time
Without reason without rhyme
Lovely, sweet young man
Son, fiance and brother
Makes no sense to me
I just have to believe

He flew up to Heaven on the wings of angels
By the clouds and stars and passed where no one sees
And he walks with Jesus and his loved ones waiting
And I know he's smiling saying
Don't worry 'bout me

Loved ones he left behind
Just trying to survive
And understand the why
Feeling so lost inside
Anger shot straight at God
Then asking for His love
Empty with disbelief
Just hoping that maybe

He flew up to Heaven on the wings of angels
By the clouds and stars and passed where no one sees
And he walks with Jesus and his loved ones waiting
And I know he's smiling saying
Don't worry 'bout me

It's hard to say goodbye
His picture in my mind
Will always be of times I'll cherish
And I won't cry 'cause

He flew up to Heaven on the wings of angels
By the clouds and stars and passed where no one sees
And he walks with Jesus and his loved ones waiting
And I know he's smiling saying
Don't worry 'bout me

Its been quite a weekend. Not that anything spectacular happened, just yard work. But once I finished I stepped back and thought about how good it looks, though its no where near 100% without you...

Wednesday night the first memorial award in your honor is going to be presented. I'm planning on presenting it as long as I feel up to it once the day gets here. I'm not sure right now, but your mom mentioned something about Pat and Jeremy maybe going up with me.. You would like the recipient - he is a student in the culinary program at EASTERN and has bright plans for his future.
I miss you like crazy!

"Alone in this house again tonight
I got the TV on, the sound turned down and a bottle of wine
There's pictures of you and I on the walls around me
The way that it was and could have been surrounds me

I've never been the kind to ever let my feelings show
And I thought that being strong meant never losing your self-control
But I'm just drunk enough to let go of my pain
To hell with my pride, let it fall like rain
From my eyes
Tonight I wanna cry

Would it help if I turned a sad song on
"All By Myself" would sure hit me hard now that you're gone
Or maybe unfold some old yellow lost love letters
It's gonna hurt bad before it gets better"
-Keith Urban "Tonight I Want to Cry"

Today we are going to interview three students from Eastern. One of them will end up with a scholarship in your memory. I expect that you will be with us and guide us in making the decision that you would want. I so wish we didn't have a reason to do this in the first place, but under the circumstances it is one way that you can be remembered and continue to do what you wanted to do -- help others. Yesterday, I learned of the passing of a co-worker from another office. It hit me pretty hard as she was a mom with children. Life, death and serious illness all have a new meaning to me.

Chris,
The weather this weekend was absolutely beautiful! I know that you were in charge of it - wanting to give everyone the ability to enjoy these days as much as possible even though our hearts and minds were somewhere else. I just wish that we could have left the weather up to someone else and that you were here.

We should have been spent last night with our closest family and friends, this morning we should have been so excited to wake up together for the 1st time as Mr. & Mrs.

I know that six months ago you were not ready to leave this life and if you had been given a choice you would have stayed. You have so many dreams and plans left untouched. You were such a large part of so many lives, the one that many turned to with there questions and concerns. Today you still are a large part of all of those lives - your memory is what keeps us grounded until we meet again.

You are my best friend, the one I laugh with, live for, dream with, and love.

I love you!

"A White Rose" by JB O'Reilly

The red rose whispers of passion,
And the white rose breathes of love;
O, the red rose is a falcon,
And the white rose is a dove.
But I send you a cream-white rosebud
With a flush on its petal tips;
For the love that is purest and sweetest
Has a kiss of desire on the lips

You are always on my mind - but this week it has been a million times harder to smile. The thought of how this week should have been, the joy we should both be experiencing; with each other, our family, and our friends. Most importantly how it should be culminating this weekend with us becoming one.

Hey Chris, Its Corrine I need to get this out bacause you know when somethings bothering you and you cant get it out and the only way to get it out is to talk to someone, well it looks like it is going to be you . Pat, Stacy, Sue and I and many other co-workers need your help to get us through the crazy stuff at work , because I know if you were here you would have a few words to say to certain people in this crazzy store, I dont know what to do because I get so angry and Im afraid Im going to have a "Nuttie " as Colleen would say , So if you could please just give us a little help we really need it . I know your here watching over us and will try your hardest to help, you know Chris we all put are heart and soul into this company, and you never liked this company because I remember you didnt like Crystal working for Staples because they never treated anybody nicely and took advantage of people but you know it took me 11 years to get it, you were so right I should have known that, its a no brainer so I just hope everything turns out o.k. and we are all happy again like it was at the old Warminster store they were great times when everybody worked together as a team and we all got along so great together , I think we did great! before a certain manager came. You know your Brother, Stacy, Sue, and all our co-workers deserve to stay in a store that they made there own and built to what it is ,especially your brother , he works so hard for them and to disrespect him kills me. I dont think you would have allowed that ,the kind of person that you are .Well I think Im done talking your ear off but it really helped alot to get some of my frustration out. So I Thank You, miss you more than you know.

I'm really late but, happy belated birthdays to you and pat. Happy belated Easter too. I wanted to get something off my chest, thats been bugging me since the awful day i heard you left us. I remember one day you were all here visiting and you and pat had just turned 21. I think we were all at Peperes for some kind of food gathering- not sure sugar on snow, crapeaus or pizza. Something. Well, a bunch of you decided to go out to St. Albans bars to celebrate. I didn't go and now i have kicked myself in the ass so many time. I was talking to my mom about it and she said write about it and get it off your chest. I have had several loser boyfriends in the past and i explained to mom that i didn't go because of one of them. We were always close as little kids when we used to visit a lot when you guys lived in manchester and the countless times we went to Chuckie Cheese- but i really sucks that as adults we never really to hang out! Well- thats my regret. But i know someday we will meet again and hang out then. Please know that you are loved, missed thought of often! Love cousin Manda from VT!

I woke this morning thinking about last Easter and your ham. You were so proud and it was so tasty. I hope we brought a smile to you in heaven when we brought the swan with the flowers to you. Crystal guessed where they came from the minute she saw them. Another holiday dinner without you. Crystal spent part of the day with us. It's not the same without you. Crystal helped Jade put together her shopping mall car track. All I could think about is how you'd be on the floor with them putting it together and playing with Jade. Happy Easter son!!!

Happy Birthday, Christopher!
As I woke up this morning I thought about how this day was supposed to go... it is a perfect lazy morning! It appears beautiful out but feels rather chilly - without a doubt, once we were ready to venture from the house, you would say this was perfect Jeep weather and I would agree simply because it is your birthday!

I think about how confused you would be when all I had for you was a card... only to open it and see an IOU for your rottie. I started planning and researching in September - finding the perfect breeder to assure that your pup was everything you wanted!

Word cannot convey how much my heart aches for you! I miss you!

"I wanna get lost in some corner booth Cantina Mexico
I wanna dance to the static of an AM radio
I wanna wrap the moon around us and lay beside you skin on skin
Make love 'til the sun comes up? 'til the sun goes down again
'Cause I need you"

Happy Birthday son! 26 years ago today the Lord gave me a gift of two little boys. Everyday is full of memories of you. I pull in to the driveway and look at the house and think of you painting the trim last fall. I walk in to the kitchen and see you and Crystal sitting at the counter as you so often did. I feel your warm embrace as you'd give me one of your big hugs, usally after you had picked on me about something. I see a jeep or a "big" truck on the road and I think of you- -and Dad picks on me if the big truck is not a "Dodge Ram" and we chuckle how you would be upset because the truck was some other make. Dad and I went out with everyone Friday night to celebrate Pat's birthday and memories of the "pub crawl" were fresh on my mind. Hopefully, you are having a big birthday party in heaven with friend and relatives. I hope one of them gives you a big hug from me.
I miss you!!

happy birthday pat!!! it'll be a tough one, i know ,without your "other half"- god bless you and have a beer for yourself and chris!!!! i found this poem that i'd like to share with you-
they say there is a reason-they say time will heal, but neither time or reason, will change the way we feel-, for no knows the hearteache,that lies beyond our smiles, no one knows how many times, i have broken down and cried.i want to tell you something,so there won't be any doubt,you're so wonderful to think of,but so hard to live without. we cannot bring the old days back,when we were all together,the family chain is broken now, but memories live forever-
chris you'll always be a big teddy bear in my heart to love and hug !!!! i miss you!!- aunt nett

We remember meeting Chris for the first time in Ocean City N.J. Our niece, Crystal asked if anyone would mind if her "friend" stopped by. When we met Chris we all knew they we're going to be more than friends. Chris was so personalble and friendly, genuine and down to earth. We loved Chris the moment we met him. He fit in with our family and was a perfect fit for Crystal. We remember many fun times with Chris on vacation, at the shore. Chris was always up for playing games on the porch (and disputing his loss), fishing and letting Uncle Mike drive his jeep. At our family get togethers Chris easily related to everyone, young and old. Everyone loved Chris.

How strange is the lot of us mortals!
Each of us is here for a brief sojourn;
for what purpose he knows not, though he senses it.
But without deeper reflection one knows from daily life
that one exists for other people.

I have only one memory of Chris... when he came to Crystal's office to look at some photography lights that weren't working. I remember him being quiet.. probably cause he was figuring out how to fix the lights... but my memory isn't with Chris so much as it is with both Crystal and Chris standing in what was our old photography studio and seeing the happiness on Crystal's face. Everyday at work we would plow through the busy day and I didn't get to see Crystal smile, laugh or beam often, but I did on that day and I thought to myself... she loves him and she is so proud of him. I was right. I miss Chris and I only ever met him once. I'm sad for Crystal and her family, close and extended. My thoughts are with you all everyday.

For those of you who know me, I have tried to wear an angel everyday
since Chris has become my angel and a dear friend gave me, Gil and
Crystal angel pins when Chris was called home. Today, another very
dear friend gave me a book entitled "When God Sends An Angel" and a
wonderful daily journal. It is a cherished gift and very special as we
approach the birthday of Patrick and Christopher. I will be sharing
parts of this book over the coming days and weeks.

"On gossamer wings they move as gentle breezes on a warm summer's
eve, quietly reminding us that we are always watched over, always
loved."

"Twists and turns, corners we cannot negotiate. This is the nature of
an angel's world: helping us with the unknown challenges as well as
the ones that stare us in the face."

Chris watch over us and guide us as we continue on our journey of
life. We know you are our angel and our with us everyday. We love
you and miss your human presence.

I will never look at Rice-a-roni the same way since Chris put it
between two slices of bread. It started down the shore last year.
The rice was left over from one of Aunt Cindy's fabulous dinners the
night before, and Chris wanted to save it so he could put it on a
sandwich. I said, "A rice-a-roni sandwich?!"
He replied, "Yeah, I love carbohydrate sandwiches."
I can respect that. He put spaghetti on a roll later that week. I didn't
ask any questions.

We miss you, Chris.
Happy Birthday to you and Pat!

I drive past the cemetary almost everyday and my daughter always
says "Hi Uncle Chris! I love You!" Some of my fondest memories of
Chris are of the interaction between him and my daughter Tiana. She
always wanted to see him. He was so fun. She wanted to be like him
and do what he was doing. He always took time to spend with her and
she will always remember that. It takes a special person to touch a
young person's life the way he did Tiana's. Yes, Tiana is young and will
grow and meet new people through out her life but because of his
personality, kindness and unconditional love for her, Uncle Chris will
never be forgotten.
Some of my memories of the two of them are : Chris and T having a
contest on who can take the biggest bite of their mac & cheese. T
sitting on Chris's lap for dominoes and card games. T wanting to wear
Chris's cowboy hat so Cindy got her some of her own. Cindy and Chris
teaching T to say "woo woo baby" to motorcycles and people. Chris
making her toys talk to her and tickle her. Chris building things in the
sand with her. He even tried to teach her why rednecks have a
farmer's tan. Even the way she would look at him was very special.
She would also feel his beard and make faces. I will also remember
how when ever I wasn't looking, or at least he thought, Chris would try
to teach T that beer was good for her or ask her if she wanted a sip
of his. She would always giggle and say "NO" and as she got older she
would tell him "I'm too little" or "beers for Daddy's and Poppop's".
There are so many memories.
Chris, Thank you for being so great and special.

Memories of Chris... I wish I had more of them... I remember every
holiday, or special occasion, when the Laroche clan would trek from
where-ever they were living that year... to come up to Vermont to see
us all. I have so many memories of playing as a kid with Chris, when we
would all hide outside at Peperes at christmas.... Or playing dolls with
Chris and Jeremy at my house (yes Chris and Jeremy both played dolls
with me... LOL) My favorite memory was when we were in our early
teens... for some reason Chris was the only one there from what I can
remember... and we went swimming at my parents house... I have a
picture from that day because Chris and I both had long hair... and
they said we looked like siblings. Chris was such an amazing cousin... I
loved just knowing him. I wish as adults we could have known each
other better. I love you Chris. I think of you often.

Happy St. Patricks Day my son. I wore two Irish angels today in your memory. Crystal, Dad and I have worn angels almost daily since you were called to be an angel. Dad and Crystal wear the ones that Carol and Rudy gave them, but I have quite a collection now. Dad gave me two that are St. Pattys day themed and I have been wearing them this week so today I wore both. You do have that touch of Irish in you. I know Dad doesn't like to admit you have the Irish mixed with that French but it is there. We all think of you several times a day.
We love you.

 


March 17, 2009

Happy St. Patrick's Day!!

For neither of us being all that much Irish - it sure was a good reason for a great time! I don't think there is a year that I can't think of a St. Patrick's day story.

I'm remembering St. Patrick's Day three years ago, it was on a Friday so I was off from work, Pat had to work the late shift ( i think), and you opted to stay home because you wanted to drink green beer. The three of us went from bar to bar in search of green beer with no luck. We finally got lucky and found it at, where else, Gavin's. You and Pat were so excited to be drinking green beer! You each had one or two and then we went on our way - you were content - all you wanted was a green beer.

Last night as I lay sleeping, love,
A vision came to me.
It was of you and I, my love,
A wondrous sight to see.

And in the dream I had, my love,
I reached and touched your face
I clasped your hand in mine, my love,
And felt your warm embrace.

I pressed my lips to yours, my love,
To taste your kiss so sweet
You held me for a minute, love,
In this moment that did fleet.

I wakened from the dream, my love,
With a thought of you that stayed
With me throughout the day, my love,
And never once did fade.

~Author Unknown

The littlest things trigger a memory - each memory brings a smile to my face and
a tear to my eye. Missing you more and more every day. Love you!

Chris,
I'm remembering down the shore when we went to ride bikes and you told
me you couldn't do this as you wobbled down the street, like you just learning
how to ride a bike for the first time. "You never forget how to ride a bike."
I'm missing you today, as I think about all the things we would be doing
and talking about over the next few weeks.

It's a snow day again. I think these days are the hardest for me since snow days
were our hell raising days. Running around all day in the snow, doing doughnuts
in the middle of the intersection of 263 and county line on the way back from
Norristown to pick up an engine hoist for WhiteTrash Customs in Big Red (don't
tell dad!). I know you were looking down and laughing today as I was spinning
around in a snowy white cloud of parking lot today. I miss you buddy.

Yes we are beer drinkers,
yes we are hell raisers,
but we're still the nicest guys you'll ever know.

Everytime someone leaves a message, whether to us, in general or to
Chris; it means so much to all of us. I know Chris lives on in everyone's
heart and that people have great memories of him. His friends are a
great tribute to him. I want everyone to know how wonderful their
support has been. Please continue to share thoughts and memories of
Chris--whether a passing thought because of something that happened
today that made you think of him or you have a story tell. Every
message is a treasure. Thank you.

Your sweetness captured my heart, right from the start
There's magic in your ways, how they light up my days
The honesty reflected in your eyes, caught me by surprise
Never found anyone as beautiful as you, perfection in all that you do
Before you came along, I was wild and untamed, sang my own song
Never imagined I would find a man that would be more than a friend
Sweet simplicity and yet so refined, a man like you is hard to find
Virtues in your heart so true, outweighed by far little flaws found in you
I love you for all that you are, from you I will never wander far
Your captivating personality draws me in, leaves my head in a spin
Wrapped around your little finger, thoughts of you they linger

Happy Valentine's Day!

Love Always,
Crystal

Good morning son. I've been thinking a lot about you the last several
days. More than usual since I had to have a medical procedure and
have been recovering from that. I miss you so much. I know you are
with us but your physical presence is missing--your smile, your
laughter, your picking on me, the hugs. Everyone is coming over
tonight to make final decisions about the scholarship fund for Eastern
in your memory. Please watch over all of us. I'm doing my best to
take care of Dad, Crystal, Jeremy, Tina, Pat, Stacy and the three girls,
but I sure can use your help.

Love by Czeslaw Milosz

Love means to look at yourself
The way one looks at distant things
For you are only one thing among many.
And whoever sees that way heals his heart,
Without knowing it, from various ills--
A bird and a tree say to him: Friend.

Then he wants to use himself and things
So that they stand in the glow of ripeness.
It doesn't matter whether he knows what he serves:
Who serves best doesn't always understand.

Chris you served many and were a friend to all. You showed everyone
love and we miss your presence every day.

In Our Hearts
(author unknown)

We thought of you with love today.
But that is nothing new.
We thought about you yesterday.
And days before that too.
We think of you in silence.
We often speak your name.
Now all we have is memories.
And your picture in a frame.
Your memory is our keepsake.
With which we'll never part.
God has you in his keeping.
We have you in our heart..

Chris, it's three months today since the Lord called you home. A
rainy, snowy day much like today. We all miss you so much. I sat at
the dining room table last night with Dad, Crystal, Jeremy, and Pat and
it was obvious you were not physically there, but you were in our
thoughts and our conversation. I love you.

I spend a great amount of time listening to your country music - it has grown on me over the years. There are many songs where I can picture us dancing together in our living room or you reaching over to hold my hand as we drive down the road. Now our living room is empty and car rides are lonely but the music is still there and gets me through each day. Nothing will ever fill the void that I now feel - but I can surround it with the memories.

The song below is just one of the many that brings back memories - as I picture you whispering the words in my ear.

Keep your head there on my shoulder
Let?s just lay here for awhile
We can hurry when we?re older
And girl, don?t worry about tomorrow
That just seems so far away
Love for me, me and you,
All that we have to do is follow
just follow

Let me be the one who sets your feet up on a road where you?ve
never been
oh, and baby then
You can let me take these arms and wrap you up inside a night that
will never end
I want to be that man
if you let me
C?mon, baby, let me

Baby, leave those candles burning
Slide on over here to me
If you run with me, girl
You know we?ll make this world stop turning
just stop turning

Let me be the one who sets your feet up on a road where you?ve
never been
oh, and baby then
you can let me take these arms and wrap you up inside a night that
will never end
Well, I can be that man
if you let me
Oh, whoa

Let me be the one who sets your feet up on a road where you?ve
never been
Yeah, and let me take these arms and wrap you up inside a night that
will never end
I want to be that man
if you?d let me
Sweet baby, let me

Do Not Stand at My Grave and Weep
by Mary Elizabeth Frye

Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there, I do not sleep.

I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glint on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.

When you wake in the morning hush,
I am the swift, uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circling flight.
I am the soft starlight at night.

Do not stand at my grave and weep.
I am not there, I do not sleep.

To All Parents (adaped to him rather than her)
by Edgar Guest
"I'll lend you for a little time a child of Mine," He said.
"For you to love the while he lives
And mourn for when he's dead.
It may be six or seven years, or twenty two or three,
But will you, till I call him back,
Take care of him for Me?
He'll bring his charms to gladden you,
And shall his stay be brief,
You'll have his lovely memories as solace for your grief.

I cannot promise he will stay, since all from earth return
But there are lessons taught down there
I want this child to learn.
I've looked the wide world over
In my search for teachers true
And from the throngs that crowd life's lanes
I have selected you.
Now will you give him all your love,
Nor think the labor vain,
Nor hate me when I come to call to take him back again?

I fancied that I heard them say: "Dear Lord, Thy will be done!
For all the joy thy child shall bring,
The risk of grief we'll run.
We'll shelter him with tenderness, we'll love him while we may,
And for the happiness we've known
Forever grateful stay;
But shall the angels call for him much sooner than we've planned

We'll brave the bitter grief that comes
And try to understand.

If Tears Could Build A Stairway

If tears could build a stairway
And memories were a lane
We would walk right up to Heaven
And bring you back again

No farewell words were spoken
No time to say goodbye
You were gone before we knew it
And only God knows why

Our hearts still ache in sadness
And secret tears still flow
What it meant to lose you
No on will ever know

But know we know you want us
To mourn for you no more
To remember all the happy times
Life still has much in store

Since you?ll never be forgotten
We pledge to you today
A hallowed place within our hearts
Is where you?ll always stay

I miss you so much! All the fun times we had together, I will never
forget. You would always make going to PA fun and exciting. I can
remember when I went down when I was 8 and we went out and
cought fireflys. This poem I wrote in your memory. I love you very
much and miss you dearly.

In Loving Memory:


The sun rises and sets everyday
A person is born and dies every minute
We all smile and frown throughout the week

Today was your day to die but be reborn in gods? hands
The sun rose and set in your name on this day
It was my day to frown upon your death but smile when memories
come across my thoughts

When I look around people surround me with the same expression on
their faces as what?s on mine
We all sit there looking at you lying in your casket the thought of
wonder, surprise, sadness, hope, and prayer all ponder through our
heads

As I comfort the people around me I remember how you would
comfort me when I was upset and needed a friend
How you always seem to know what would put a smile on my face
You were always the one coming up with brilliant ideas to keep me
entertained when I seemed bored
Whether it was chasing fire flys throughout the night or watching a
good movie

As they lie you in your grave I am full of sorrow, but also happiness,
knowing I will see you again in a place much bigger than the world we
were originally introduced.

Family Chain

We little knew that morning,
God was going to call your name,
In life we loved you dearly,
In death we do the same.

It broke our hearts to lose you,
You did not go alone.
For part of us went with you
The day God called you home.

You left us beautiful memories,
Your love is still our guide,
And though we cannot see you,
You are always at our side.

Our family chain is broken,
and nothing seems the same,
But as God calls us one by one,
The chain will link again.

This is absolutley amazing and Chris deserves nothing less. Every time
he came up to Vermont all of us would be anxtious to visit with him
because he always had so much to offer, his enthusiasm and spirit was
great. Just remember he will always be with you in your hearts minds
and soul. Never let his memory die. After viewing the videos of his
adventures with his Jeep I thank Aunt Brenda for not letting Elizabeth
go with him on these excursions while she was visiting. Holy Cow!

Hand in hand in eternity.
Until then, live your life for life is good...
And know that I am with you.

Dear Brenda, Gil, Crystal and Family,
I have visited this site many times since finding out about it and each
time I come away with the feeling "Here is a kid who really lived life!"
When Brenda emailed me about the accident I was shocked and so sad.
I know you are all hurting so much and there is nothing anyone can do
to make it go away, but you know in your hearts that Chris is right
there, and always will be.
Gil and Brenda you did good, Chris was such a great son, caring, calm,
self confident, funny, hardworking and full of enthusiasm for his TOYS,
Family Crystal, and what came next in life.
Crystal, you two were really FUN to work with, I would have loved to
show you a hundred more houses because looking a the houses Chris
found was NEVER boring! I know this was supposed to be THE year and
at your age, or any of our ages for that matter, you never saw this
coming, but you know Chris will always be in your heart.
Jeremy and Patrick and families, this is a tough time but it's so rare
you see brothers who really care about each other and enjoyed
spending time together, those are great memories.
Please know our prayers are with each of you
Sincerely,
Pat McCann

and read the other infomation provided on the web site I feel that I
have known him all of the time. You were certainly blessed with such
a wonderful son. I pray for you folks that God will give you the
strength to carry on. With Love- Jerry

Instead of saying "I can't believe its been 2 months..." we should be
saying "Only 4 more months to go!!!"
I dream that you are doing everything you ever wanted, with that
contagious smile on your face but the pain of losing you becomes greater with each passing day
Merry Christmas
I Love You!

Dear Brenda, Gil and family,
Thank you for the beautiful holiday card and information on the
website that you lovingly established in memory of your son Chris. I
just wanted to add my condolences to the long list that you have
already received for Chris on that website. While I never met Chris
while I was working with you at HUD, I can tell from reading your
tribute and the messages of others that he must have been a joy and
light! May that light be a beacon for you all in the coming years.

Dearest Brenda,
Words cannot express my sympathy for your loss. The problems with
once a year holiday greetings is that we are not always connected
enough to be aware of what is going on. Sandi and I have you and
your family and Crystal in our thoughts and prayers.

I still remember the first time we met Chris. You, Gil and family had
just arrived in Indianapolis and were staying in one of those residence
stays on the northwest side. We invited you to get a bite to eat and
we went to Max and Erma's on Michigan Road. Chris was there, a big
smile on his face, coat unbuttoned and was just very direct with
questions and observations. He was all boy and so open and direct.

Of course, we gathered together many other times as we benefited
from our journey together at that point in time. Jill is now 26 so she,
Chris and Pat were all so young. Jeremy not much older.

Anyway, again you need to know that you are not alone, that those
that Chris, you, Gil and family have touched remember how much
richer we are for those times and that often bad things happen to
good people.

May you find some peace and comfort this holiday season knowing
that you are loved.

One year ago today we purchased our first home
It may be small but it is ours
I can sit anywhere and picture you there
The king of your castle
The plans we had keep running through my mind
The french doors, the bigger garage, and the second floor
The to-do list never ending and on my own is overwhelming
So please don't get upset if I fall a little behind
I am doing my best just to get by
I will find a way to care and protect our home
To make you proud as you roam
Forever I shall miss you and love you with all of my heart!

Crystal

Hi, I really don't do well with times like these but I wanted to tell Crystal, Pat and his family and friends how sorry I am about Chris. He was a great guy and caring person. He always made you feel comfortable whenever he was around, especially when we would all go to see Eyeless Ingaza where ever the show would be he was always the first person to say "Hey baby how have you been?" He loved you Crystal more than the world, and I will never forget the night at the Red Stallion when he came to your rescue in the bathroom and when we used to play softball every Sunday for our Warminster Staples team, he always asked me - "Corrine what do we win?" and I would say "I don't know Chris, it's Staples." But I won in the end because I got to be his friend - that was my prize. I will miss you a whole bunch more that you know. I hope you are ok and loving life as it is now like you did when you were with Crystal, your brothers, and your family and friends. We all miss you and love you and I will see you when its my turn to be free. Save a seat for me just like at Red Stallion. I hope Crystal, Pat, Stacy and your Mom and Dad are doing well. All my thoughts and prayers are with you, and Chris - you will always be in my heart. Love Corrine...

When I first heard of the accident, I couldn't believe it. I thought no, not Chris. I remember every summer he would come up to Vermont to visit My inlaws Royce and Nancy and seemed to just love farming. He couldn't get enough of it. When it came time for Richard and I to get married, Chris was the best choice for ring berrer, he took his job very seriously, I think he was about 6 or 7 years old, cute as a button and smiling all the way. When it came time for the pony ride through Swanton, (our limo) he waved to all the people who chose to come out and give us a wave he loved every minute of it. Once Richard and I owned our own farm Royce sadly passed away. Chris started to vist our farm and spend a lot of time with our growing girls who miss him greatly. Chris I know you are in paradise, a place we can only imagine, say hi to Royce, Keith, and Uncle Rob for us. We all miss you dearly, but look forward to the day we see you again.

Instead of looking forward to each day, I find myself just going through the motions. I miss Chris' goodbye kisses on my forehead every morning, the twinkle in his eyes every time he looked at me, having his companionship and sharing all we had with each other.

Some say it is strange, but we didnt fight. We had our disagreements but we always talked through them or took a few minutes doing our own thing to calm down. I never knew that a relationship like that was possible before Chris.

He loved his toys and he worked hard to have them. I dont know that anyone knew it when he brought it home, but that Jeep became such a large part of who he was. Whether it was just cruising and having a good time or challenging himself to see what he was capable of the Jeep was there.

His family meant the world to him and he would do anything for them. He cherished the bond that he had with his parents and brothers. He loved everyone in Vermont. He was always so excited to get to see them and was looking forward to going up Christmas weekend. I am grateful that we got to see everyone as often as we did.

He accepted my family from the beginning and treated them like his own. I dont know anyone who would have been that laid back meeting someones family for the first time, especially since the night he asked me out he drove to Ocean City, NJ to do so and in the process met my whole family (parents, aunts, uncles, and cousins). I will never forget when he left everyone just kept saying how great of a guy he was.

Now instead of planning our wedding, having a family of our own, and growing old together I have to face that all of those things that we were so excited about together will never happen.

Everyone's outpour of love and support is very much appreciated. Someday we will all be able to remember and smile, without the tears.

Christopher, I will love you forever and a day!

Chris was always there to help everyone and he fit right in with our family and he was a joy to be with. Matthew really enjoyed hanging out with Chris, he's like a big brother to him. Chris will be missed as part of our family, we wish we had him with us for so much longer.

Words can't express the sorrow that Crystal and our family and Chris's family are going through. Chris was a great guy. He was a cousin to me and great Uncle to my daughter Tiana. There are so many things that remind me of him daily that make me laugh or cry. Like how I will never forget how he was my partner in crime down the shore. We would stay up late every night playing games listening to music on the porch. Or when he wouldn"t let anyone throw out the leftover Rice a roni or spaghetti leftovers because he wanted to eat them on bread as a sandwich for breakfast the next day. He told us "I Love carbs". I will always remember Tiana wanting to be like Uncle Chris and wanting to were his cowboy hat so much that Cindy bought her 3 of her own.Every night for the rest of vaca they wore their hats together. I think of him every time Tiana says "woo-baby". Chris and Cindy taught her to say that to motorcycles and people walking past the porch. And when I drive through Warminster near the boys old place and remember the night that Chris, Crystal, the boys and I went down the city to see their friend"s band. That night when we got back to their place Chris told me he had "True Feelings" for my cousin Crystal. And when my aunt was sick and I stopped over Crystal and Chris"s house for them to sign her quilt. Crystal was still at work and Chris was telling me how lucky he was and how happy he was and how much he loved Crystal. He was so excited for their wedding. I will always have only good memeories of him because he was such a good person. Chris was very special and has taught me to enjoy life to the fullest and to tell my family and friends how much they mean to me before it is too late. I didn't get to tell Chris how much he ment to me and Tiana so I wanted to share some of my memories of him with everyone else. He touched our lives in a special way.

Even if we all feel a profound sadness in the loss of Chris, it must be only a tiny fraction of the loss felt by Crystal, her family, Chris' family, friends and co-workers. This must be especially so for those that spent their time with Chris and shared their days and evenings with him, and no longer have his companionship. It has been said that in every tragedy and in every one of life's obstacles there is something learned and something gained. While it is hard to imagine the positive in such a deep loss, it seems to be the nature of Chris that his kindness and good intentions will bring people closer together and create hope from despair and peace from anguish. I know no words can do Chris justice, nor ease the sadness of Crystal and Chris' loved ones, but it is the hope of everyone at DDA that at the very least this website is a starting point.

I did not know much about Chris, only the things that Crystal would tell me about. Crystal and I had brief conversations about things going on at home, or even just what she did over the weekend and when she talked about Chris, I could see such love and adoration in her eyes. Reading through this site, I felt as if I got to know him a little bit and he is such a caring and considerate person. My deepest sympathies go out to Crystal and the entire LaRoche family, who now have a guardian angel looking over them.

I have three children, close to his age, and I couldn't imagine loosing anyone of them.
