    To Mr & Mrs. Morin & Jennifer,
    I am so sorry for your loss of Christopher. It really is hard to believe.
    Your family has always been there for us in our time of need. Now it’s our turn. It’s my honor to be there for you in any way that you need.
    It’s been a long time since I last visited with Chris. I have good memories of childhood birthday parties with Christopher and in my teens a ski day together and watching the big screen satellite tv at your place.
    At times like these I realise that family & good friends are so precious. Take comfort in knowing that Chris is in God’s care and we are all here for you.

    Dear Anna, Bruce and Jennifer,
    Our thoughts and prayers go out to you at this very sad time. Chris was a wonderful young man and we have many fond memories of him at our house on Wood Crescent growing up with Rob. Chris had a special way about him that always made you feel good when he was in your home. Although he was one of the quieter friends you always felt his presence – always smiling, a twinkle in his eye and always a positive influence on everyone he touched. Chris was very special and he will live on in the hearts of the people who knew and loved him.

    We are so very sorry for your loss.
    Gene and Laurie Kindrachuk

  9. Joe and Carol Morin :

    Dear Bruce, Anna, Jennifer. We cannot begin to imagine the sorrow you must be experiencing at this time. When a life of a loved one is gone far too soon, it shakes the core of your being. Although we did not have much of an opportunity to get to know Chris, we were well aware that he was loved. One of our most delightful memories we have of Chris was at a dinner we had at your home watching Chris and his grandfather Rolly having a good banter about the Flames. We feel very sad that we cannot be there to help support you but please know you are in our thoughts. Wishing you peace and comfort at this very difficult time.

    Sincerely with love,
    Joe and Carol Morin

    My deepest condolences, Auntie Anna, Uncle Bruce and Jennifer.
    I was very proud to call Chris a cousin. He was always so good-spirited, friendly and easy to share a conversation with. Most recently, Chris came to visit me in hospital in Victoria, bringing with him a positive outlook, a stack of books, magazines, cookies and pudding snacks. One time, he even brought along a DVD player with some movies and tried to hook it up to the little personal TV they provide in the ward. We both got a shock, then a laugh, when sparks flew as he connected the wires. We were pretty sure it didn’t short out any of the important monitors around the hospital.
    Your loss will be deeply felt by us all.
    Brian
