  9. I am truly sorry for your loss.

    Chris and I worked together when he was at special prosecutions. He had conduct of a major secret commissions fraud involving a first nation and I was the lead investigator. I found him to be so professional and well prepared…. everything a Crown should be.

    During the breaks/ delays we shared a good deal of stories and experiences. He was always a gentleman and had the greatest potential.
    His smile, insight and compassion have a left an impression on me. My deepest condolences.

    Dear Lisa,

    I was so sorry to hear that Chris lost his battle with cancer. I will miss his smile and great sense of humour. I’ll never forget the weigh scale present that I teased him endlessly about.

    I can appreciate what a tremendous loss this is for you but I know that you and Chris had many wonderful times together and the memories of those can only help sustain you.

    With a big hug for you,

    Pat Yelle

    Lisa & Family,

    The service today was a wonderful tribute to a wonderful and truly respected (and respectful) man.

    I will never forget the smiles you both always had when you talked about each other. I remember talking to Chris one day in Court and he told me how proud he was of you and how lucky he was to have you. The love you shared was inspiring.

    My thoughts are with you,
