Christopher you were a beautiful soul. I am so happy that we got to reconnect after all these years. The few times I got to see you over the last few months I was so happy to see how great you have been doing. I keep laughing thinking of us saying "we are all grown up now" and we continue to work on ourselves. You lite up the room when you walked in. Myself as your friend and my coworkers home you've touched at Brinckerhoff and Neuville will miss you greatly. Sleep in Peace Angel. --- Stephanie Padro.
