How did I miss this announcement? Cynthia I am so sorry to just hearing about Christopher’s passing. He was such a sweet man, and was always a good friend to me. Praying for you and all his family members. God bless you,

Dear Cynthia and Family, Nico and I are so sorry for your loss! Chris was a wonderful godly man. Nico and I have fond memories of his kindness and extravagant worship! Our prayers go out to you.
Chris was always kind to me and a caring Uncle to my son. No matter what was going on, he showed love in action. On the morning before my wedding (June’18) he helped my husband set up the bar and more at the reception venue; a big chore he made lighter. I will always remember Chris’ nature of being there for others, which he did with grace. – Charity Holliday.
My condolences to the Fletcher family. May the Lord Jesus give you His wonderful peace at this time. I always considered Chris a loving and kind person. Early in our lives, we had some good times together. He will be remembered.
