Here are some special memories shared by family and friends.
Chrissy did more for my family then most might even know. He always helped my family move from house to house, never afraid to give us a helping hand. My father said Chrissy was one of the hardest working people he's ever known. But, most of all the role he best played in my family's life was being my father's best friend. I feel as though when rough patches in my fathers life hit just Chrissy coming over for an hour or so and watching a game or busting each others chops helped my father out in forgetting thoughs rough patches. I wish I could thank him for the friend he was to my family and all the times he helped us out, but i guess this will have to do. I love you brother, thank you for being the person you were and I hope you rest easy.

I am truly sorry for the loss and pain that the Dolan family and friends are feeling because of losing Chris recently in death, way too soon. Most of us have had to endure the sorrow of losing a loved one in death. What helped me the most was prayer and faith in God's promises like found here at 1 Corinthians 15: 26 and it tells us: "And the last enemy, death, is to be brought to nothing." God's kingdom that Jesus taught us to pray for at Matt. 6: 9, 10 will bring about these wonderful promises, including the resurrection. None of us are guaranteed tomorrow, but we are all guaranteed a resurrection. (John 5:28, John 6:40, John 11:23-25) I pray it will bring you comfort to watch this short, faith strengthening video: https://vimeo.com/232445509 You are in my prayers.
