In Loving Memory
Christopher was a sweet, compassionate soul loving all who came into his life. He was passionate about human rights. He loved music, playing his guitar and had an amazing sense of humor. His greatest wish was for people to understand those struggling with the disease of addiction and for there to be equality for all who need healthcare, regardless of income. Chris started using drugs at an early age, graduating from marijuana to opiates, synthetics and crack. He tried many, many times to stop and had started attending NA meetings a few weeks before he died. He truly believed he would beat this disease some day. He never sugar-coated his struggle with drugs. He would want us to talk about it.. rage against it.. fight for access to affordable treatment and stop the stigma of addiction that causes so many to suffer and die alone.
