I am so blessed to have known Chris, my day was always brightened when I was able to talk some Phillies with him. He will always be alive in the hearts and minds of the people’s lives he touched. My family’s thoughts and prayers are with the Furry family.

Mr. & Mrs. Furry, I am sorry for the loss of your son, Christopher. I am grateful that I was able to play my music for him and I hope it brought him some peace and comfort. He was a joy to play for and I enjoyed our interaction during my visits. May God provide comfort for you during this time.

Joanne Miller, SpiriTrust Lutheran Home Care and Hospice volunteer

I enjoyed teaching Chris when he was in fifth grade. He was a very good student and always pleasant. We prayed for him often when he became ill. Now we pray for comfort for Pat and Sam. To Chris, I was always Mrs. Martin even though I tried to get him to call me Dottie

Christopher and his family are members at St. Luke Lutheran Church where I am also a member. He was sometimes an interim choir director when I was a member of the choir and we enjoyed the choir practices where he shared his musical talent. He was so talented in many other ways, and had a marvelous sense of humor. My husband and I attended his concerts at church and when he performed at The Fleck Center at Luther Ridge. I will miss him. Rest in Peace, my friend.

Christopher was an amazing man who had a heart of gold, so generous and welcoming as i met him during La Cage Aux Folles - and his singing brought tears of joy to my eyes for every performance. He will be missed by me and so many others. it was my honor to spend time with him. Know he is in heaven looking at us with smiles.
