God Speed

Christopher Martin

Life is a very difficult place to live.

The telephone rings.  A loved one  has passed.  At 39, he is too young… and gone way too soon.  He is Christopher Martin, my husband’s first born and #1 eldest son.  Please say an extra prayer for his Dad, his Mom, and his siblings.

His passing turns the world surreal for everyone who knows and loves him.  Christopher was brilliant.  His creativity flowed like a 10-lane super-highway with the Flying Angels soaring overhead.

His laughter and passion for living will dance in our hearts forever.  His genuine interest in people and what makes us tick touched countless people who passed through his life.  The trail of his footprints will be missed, as his path was cut short too suddenly.

Hug everyone you love a little more closely.  Take nothing for granted… not one single day.

God bless you, Christopher.
