Chris was a former student of mine when I taught English at Caddo Mills High School. He was a very good student and always had a good perspective and attitude toward life. Earlier this year I was in Walmart in Greenville buying groceries on a Saturday morning and was waiting at the check out line. A young man walked up behind me and tapped me on the shoulder and asked if I knew who he was. My immediate response was a smile on seeing him and acknowledging that "yes, I knew who he was." When I received the news of his passing , I thanked God for the privilege of having a wonderful conversation and visit with him at the store that morning. At the time he seemed to be doing well and was h...andling the illness and treatments as well as could be expected. As a teacher who had
a good rapport with her high schoolers, it is sad to lose a young man so young and full of life to such an illness. But I do know and have the confidence as did he that where he is now, he has been made whole and pain free and is happy and vibrant in God's presence.
