Remembering you Kristofer. Hard to believe you left last week. Known Kris since I was 13. One of the best fellas a person could know. A1 brother in law from my first marriage. Kind old soul. Hell of a carpenter and electrician. Friendly smile that made the dim days brighter. Old memories——-You and Nathan carrying me up the stairs on my 21st birthday- how it looked like you guys were carrying up my lifeless body. Lol. …..That night me and Christie walked up the driveway to you and Nathan and me yellin “Did I spoil the party” wisecrack you would always make when you seen me. We would laugh about that every time we would see each other. ……How you gave me an old hound dog piggy bank for my 14th bday that said “brother can you spare a dime”and how you couldn’t believe the last time I told you I still had it which was years ago…and yes, I still have it since 1996……Our first “little family we were all grown up “vacation to VaBeach …….Seeing you change Kaylees diaper and feed and burp her for the first time on the day she was born like a pro…….Your wedding day…. That night at Boogies and Us all singing that song “Heaven” by Bryan Adams and formed a line dancing to “Alright Now” by Free. If you were there, ya know…..That night at Yak-a-doos when me and Nate got the band to play a song for you and Christie. Told them to play a love song for y’all’s first wedding anniversary and they played “Leather and Lace” by Stevie Ncks and Don Henley. ….You and Christie rolling up in a wheelchair for fun into my hospital room after having Kevin ….we were 20 then. -Many others I remember as well.Too many to mention but for real not enough. We sure had some good times fam .I wish there were more to come but til we meet again: Love ya bro. Rest In Peace Kris Brown
I miss and love you. I remembered the first time I saw you. Your Mom and day just brought you home from the hospital. You was so tiny and so so adorable. You was a happy baby until it came to bath time. You hated bath time. But you loved to explore and play with other kids. You had the type of laughter that everyone one laugh when they heard you. I remember how proud you was when your babies was born. You was such a good Father and showed them so much love. I would love when you come a visit me. I enjoyed having you come out to the house to build my craft/storage room. You did all the wiring for the electrical. I was very proud of you and honored that you put in all that work. I remember when you and Christy camped out in the tent on the dam at my house. How y’all heard something and came up to the house lol. Told me Kaylee got scared lol. Kaylee said nooo I didn’t it was you Dad. Lol and you shhhhh her and said that was hers and your secret lol. You are so missed and I can’t believe your not here. Your forever in my heart, thoughts and prayers. Love you
My son was his own person.
Kind and loving,humorous and stubborn in his loyalty to his friends.
He loved his people.
My mind keeps going back to when he was a baby,a toddler, a precocious 3year old…..he is always in my heart, my mind,I so miss him.
My Kristofer, you are the greatest blessing in my life. I was a child, having a child. You were the best baby a mama could ask for. Always Happy. There are so many memories I hold dear. Potty training was a challenge. You would hide behind a door, hiding, not realizing when you pottied, it would run from under the door. Busted! Then when you were 4, you learned how to swim and tie your shoes. Which you couldn’t wait to learn. Then when daycare had you helping tie the other kids shoes you didn’t like that anymore. At 5 and 6, the only shoes you’d wear were sneakers. Your reasoning was, “because Mama, they make you go faster”. I remember all our special times together, just you and I. Kings Dominion, Bush Gardens, Wrestling Matches, Colonial Beach….oh, they replay over and over in my mind. Then my boy grew into a man. I am so very proud of the man you became. When you loved, you loved with your whole heart and soul. You were the best dad you could be, you loved your children with your whole heart and soul. You have a very kind, east going person. Rest easy my son, I will always look after your children. You are flesh of my flesh, bone of my bone. You will always be a part of me whether your here physically or not. Rest easy my son I will miss and love you more, always..
RIP Uncle Kris. ♡
Wish the the last couple of years were a lot different than they turned out for you.. such a funny, caring, free spirited and amazing person.. you deserved to live the life you were given to the fullest. You were the only person in this world that I never once witnessed go all out to intentionally hurt someone regardless of their ill will towards you.. you blew it off and just rolled with it.. I never knew you to have the desire to see another experience pain, injury or distress.. If you were called for anything.. didn’t matter what it was.. you always showed up.. that’s just who you were.. forgive me.. that is WHOM YOU ARE. AND ALWAYS WILL BE IN MY MIND. You had a good heart. Good intentions. A great sense of humor and even at the lowest moments of your life.. you still found it in yourself to laugh and to smile.. and that shit was ridiculously contagious.. I couldn’t stand you sometimes. Lmao. I remember how happy you were when you were told you were going to be a dad. I remember seeing you.. even at your worst.. trying to still be a good dad, a good friend and someone people could rely on.. someone to make everyone laugh and cheer up the entire room!. Not very many people can say that.. period.. even on their best days… EVEN WITHOUT THE STRUGGLES YOU WENT THROUGH. That alone, I believe the good lord will appreciate for his own selfishness. I hope he enjoys it. 😁🥰
Makes me terribly sad that I watched you the last 10 years just struggle between good and evil. Struggle to choose between keeping your family together and putting yourself in a vulnerable situation to do so.. and risk to loose it all anyway. I will say this.. and I won’t regret ever saying it.. I don’t care who gets mad. There is a person that was supposed to be your rock.. this person pulled you in claiming to be shelter at times.. and all she managed to do was aide in burrying you under it. When you tried to get out.. she threw the sand back over your escape route. Even so.. you were still you. I hope you rest in piece. God love you. We all love you. No more pain. No more tears. No more struggles. Rest easy.. and then wake up and give them all a good run for their halos up there. xoxo 💙🤍💙💫💫
Omg. So many memories with Chris when we were teens…….. I remember he came into Ricky’s room in Austin run and asked if he could smoke with us……… We told him that he could….. ( I mean, after all, Ricky just stole a bud out of Ricks bag) lmao…….. I was giving Kris a “shotgun” from a big ass blunt……. Halfway through the shotgun, he projectile vomited right over my shoulder and all onto Ricky’s bed!!!!!! Lmao. It was the funniest freaking thing ever!!!! He literally almost puked in my face……. He walked out of the room and Ricky was screaming at him to clean the puke up!!!!! Omg. So freaking funny!!!!!
My Dearest Child….as I try to make it through my day today, my thoughts are on you. Today was supposed to be the day you should have come home to me. I’m trying to be a trooper and keep my mind on good memories..know always that I love you more…
I still hear your laughter & see that beautiful smile . I see you playing in my minds eye that little boy . You were so up beat , always seeing the good things in life & not letting the bad block your path . You will always hold a special place in
Aunt Janettes heart since the day you were born , I’m still here for you & the kids & Mom . And though I miss you very very much I know we’ll see all our loved ones again one day . I Love You
My Greatest Blessing,
I can’t fathom our life with you no a part of it. I think of all the things you will never experience. There isn’t a day that goes by,that I don’t think of you. I hope your presence will always be felt. I hope you know how well your children are doing. They are really growing up fast. I love you more!
My son, this life is so very heartbreaking. I hurt so bad that all you endured, I wasn’t able to be at your side. All the terrible things you had to go through , you had to do it alone. You were a fighter and one of the strongest people know. I tried so hard to get you home with your loved ones. There isn’t a day that goes by that you aren’t on my mind. I will always live with a piece of my heart shattered. My greatest blessing, I’m so sorry I let you down…..
