    Uncle Chris,
    You got taken from us way too young. You were the funniest guy ever, and definitely the most loyal towards everyone you loved. Everyone who knew you knows you would’ve given them the shirt off your back. I’m so lucky to have so many memories of you from throughout my life. I can’t believe I’ll never hear your loud voice booming through Nana’s house again. The only thing making me feel better right now is knowing you’re with Grampy & Auntie Debbie again.. I’ll be forever proud to know you’re my FAMILY, and you’re in all of our hearts ’til we meet again.

    I still can’t beleive that one of my best friends is now gone. I look back at all the good memories that we had together and all the unbeleivable times that even if I told you u wouldn’t beleive them. Chris had the biggest heart and if he had it in his power to help you he would be there doing whatever he could. Chris made a major impact on my life, not only did I have the honor of knowing and becoming close friends with him I had the pleasure of getting to know his family. Family was the most important thing to chris. Between taking car of his mother and brother and helping out around the house but he also had his grandson to take care which he adored, and his step-children who were more than just a stepchildren to him. I know he is up there watching over us all, sitting with his father, relaxing and being perfectly happy Chris is going to be greatly GREATLY missed by many but his memory will never die. I miss yah buddy.

    To the Brennan Family,

    Although it has been many years since I had seen Chris, I was shocked and saddened to hear of his tragic death.

    My thoughts and prayers are with you all at this difficult time.

    I was hoping to make it down today, but the roads are really bad up here in NH, where I live now.

    R.I.P. Chris

    to my cherished son, your happiness, health and safety meant everything to me, no matter how old you were, i always thought of you as my child and loved you as much as ever. i enjoyed being with you and was pleased at the person you turned out to be. your voice was one of my favorite sounds, your laughter always delighted me. you touched my heart and made me proud more often than you ever knew. memories of you are so dear to me now. you blessed my life in so many ways and i am thankful for every moment we shared. being your mother has given me happiness to the greatest degree and warmth that will fill my heart always. i am in awe that you came into my life, you made my dreams as a mother come true. i know you will watch over me and walk beside me with debbie and dad, and my broken heart will mend when we are all together again. i will love you and miss you forever – mom

    Chris was a larger than life person I had worked with him in the repo business he ran He was always a caring and understanding man, Always the fairest of players, and through thetimes working with him he gave so many people who were down on theier luck his compassion and understanding, As big as chis was his heart was absolutly larger, and never had a mean bone in his body. He will be missed by the entire town of wilmington and the many freinds he had may god rest his soul and me join his loved ones in paridise GOD BLESS CHRIS

  20. Joey says:

    well I already wrote a passage on how I felt and how much I miss you, but as the days go on every hour I think that ur actually gone it sets it more and more every minute. I keep trying to think ur away on a vacaction or in ireland or somewhere else but ur not. Ur not coming back and it really really kills me. I love yah man and I always considered you like the older brother I could come to you with any problem I had and u were akqays there with an answer that always made sense because odds are u had been through it before. I love yah man and Im really going to miss you forever. Please look over cameron and make sure he gets all the best opportunities growing up, and please watch over the rest of ur family who is lost without u. Love yah brother.
