Dear Carol & Jim~~ Please know that if I could reach inside both of your hearts and take some of your pain away I most certainly would. I know how hard it must have been for you both during the past 4 years to see a son who you nurtured and loved be struck down with that awful disease of Cancer. May God help you through through your loss. Deepest sympathy to Paul, James, Jeff, and Teresa.

I met and worked with Chris back in the 90's when we were both at Merrill Lynch. Being from Texas, our backgrounds were a little different but we were immediate friends. I will always remember Chris loaning my wife and I a car when we made two trips up to Stockbridge. Several of us got together with him here in Dallas a few years ago when he came through on his motorcycle. He was just a really great fun guy and what a pleasure to be around. I am glad he was my friend. I am sorry for your loss which I know is huge. In years to come you will have lots of beautiful memories to cherish.

Dear Jan, Dear Mr. and Mrs. Kane, I can only imagine the loss that each of you is feeling right now. Chris was at first a business associate, and recently, became a colleague of mine in Toronto when I joined IMC. I felt that Chris was a wonderful man to be with, both in and outside of the office. I valued many of his inputs and I will miss his presence going forward. I wanted to pass along my deepest sympathies to each of you. While I cannot bring him back, I hope you take comfort in knowing that he was a wonderful man who will be missed by many of up here in Toronto.
