    13 years since God took you home to Heaven where you has become an Angel. I miss you so much... I love you Chris!

    I love you Christopher! I think of you everyday.

    Angela and Chris did get married but she did NOT use his name. Chris told Rhonda that they had NEVER lived together and he WAS divorced. That's the truth. So don't pay attention to Angela and what she says because she is a known liar. She should be ashamed. I'm glad Chris was truly loved by many people. I love him. He's forever in my heart.

    Now THAT is Very Sad , he told me you never even lived together. I am just glad he knew that he was really Truly ♥Loved♥ by Me
