The arrangements for Chris are with Emblom Brenny Funeral Service in Little Falls, MN. Memorials to family preferred.
My thoughts and prayers go out to Chris’s family. I am raising money to help the Seidl family in this time of loss.  To at least help ease the financial  burden.  Chris was a dear and beloved friend of mine.  I’m writing still in shock.....  I will miss you buddy. ❤️❤️❤️  What can I say about Chris. He had a rough exterior but the heart of a teddy bear.   I was lucky enough to get to know this man in the last few years.  He inspired me in many ways. I shared so many deep belly laughs joking around with him to the point of tears!   Memories I will cherish the rest of my life. He was such a good father!  I can picture him playing with Wyatt right now....   Come together and help this family that is in need.  Thanks ahead of time ! ❤️❤️❤️

I feel a void.... I am sure many of you feel the same. I will miss my friend so much.... He is in my thoughts each day. Life truly won’t ever be the same without him. My memory’s of him brings me a little peace as I hope it does each and everyone of you. In our memories Chris lives on. ❤️ I met Chris though agates. We both shared a passion for anything Agates! I made a design in Chris’s honor. The image was made from a picture I took of his favorite find. There will be 5”($12)and 3”($8) vinyl stickers along with 1”($5) pins sold at the Brainerd show. 100% of profits goes to Paula. There will be a 3 pack with one of each available for $25 or sold separately.

Thank you everyone for your Support for Paula and her kids! ❤️❤️❤️

I can’t believe It’s been a month, our lives forever changed 1 month ago! It still doesn’t seem real!
It sure has been a rough month at that. Still trying to figure out how I’m going to support my family moving forward, emotionally, medically & financially. There is so much to take care of it can be overwhelming at times. Somehow we have managed to put one foot in front of the other for the last 33 days.
I want to thank each & everyone of you for supporting our family throughout this horrific ordeal. Thanks to everyone who brought food, made donations, attended the funeral, said a prayer, sent messages, & shared the go fund page. Chris touched the lives of many & there is no doubt about that.❤️
