I am heart broken that Chris’ life here on earth has ended so abruptly and I am especially heartbroken for our little girl. Chris was my first love and always held a special place in my heart and always will. We had an unspeakable bond that held us together right from the early ages of grade 6. As our wedding quote said “Some things were meant to be” and we were definitely meant to be. My heart will forever love him. Just know that you all will have a piece of him in Addison. Much love xx

The big brother I never had. The leader of our pack. Always a smile, a sparkle in his eye, and a crack to make you laugh , he could do it even when your heart was breaking.
He was a special person and will be forever missed by everyone he knew.
My family will always be there for you if you ever need us. we love you.
Love Michael and Adele Palmer
