Dear Grace and family. Randy & I were so sorry to hear about your loss. Chris was always smiling and friendly. I remember one winter day when I was walking I slipped on the ice and fell to the ground. Just as I did an angel in a green truck stopped and helped me up, Bless him, it was Chris. I was so embarresed and asked Chris not to tell anyone that he saw me fall. We both laughed at that. I was grateful for his kindness. I know your heart will ache for a very long time. I know it will be hard. Keep your memories close to your heart and thank the Lord for the time that you did have with Chris. But lean on God for strength, and courage. Lean on your family for they know your heart is breaking, as is theirs. I will pray for you and your family. May God Bless and keep you as you go through this loss.

Dearest Grace , children , grandchildren and families, cousins – Ron, Brenda, Anastasia, Paul, Edward and families:
My deepest condolences to you all at this difficult time. Even though your hearts are breaking and tears are clouding your eyes and staining your cheeks, God does give us something worth trusting in tough times. And that’s Him, and Him alone.. When your heart is breaking, you can place your hope and trust in the Lord.
“Be strong and take heart, all you who hope in the LORD”.
— Psalm 31:24
The days ahead will be painful and many times overwhelming but remember you are not alone on this path. The Lord will carry you if you ask Him. When you are feeling so weak you cannot take another step, ask Him to lift you high into His loving arms. Then rest in Him with an open and listening heart. My prayer for you all as you walk through your grief is that the happy memories you shared with Chris will strengthen and fill you with love and peace. May you find comfort and support as you lean on each other and God during the days ahead. My love and prayers to all and may the peace of Christ that surpasses all understanding guard your minds and hearts in Christ Jesus. Amen ♥️♥️

Chris was a kind, gentle man. I cannot imagine how devastating it must be to lose him. My thoughts are with his family, friends, and former co-workers.

To the Neary family,

Sending you my sincerest condolences. I had the pleasure of working across the hall from Chris over the past four years with the Town Office. He always wore a smile and was a genuinely kind man. His computer background at work was always a different picture of his grandchildren, whom he spoke about often, and I loved to hear him happily tell us about their lives. May he rest in peace. Thinking of you all during this difficult time.
