Chris’s fight to beat cancer came to an end this morning at 4 am. 

We were admitted to the ICU on Monday morning.  By Wednesday, we were told the cancer had progressed to a point where any further treatment would prove toxic.  Chris never gave up and as sick as he was, continued to press the doctors for a treatment plan.  While his heart, mind and soul were still in the battle, the rest of his body was not.

Saturday at 5 pm, we returned home with Chris.  At 4 am, with his mother, father, sisters, grandpa Atsinger, grandma Dolan next to him, he quietly and peacefully passed away. 

With our most deepest and sincere gratitude, we would like to thank each and every one of you who has supported Chris and prayed for Chris during his battle.   You lifted up Chris’s spirts and gave him the support he needed to engage this battle.  We truly appreciate you!

While we take comfort in knowing that his is without pain, at peace, and finally resting in Heaven, make no mistake, this world is a darker place today.  Anyone who knew him, can attest to that.  We lost a great man, a great son,  a great brother, a great grandson, and a true great friend. 

Rest peacefully Christopher, until we meet again.
