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 ! ❤️❤️❤️
