So hard to accept I won’t be getting a Shanley hug, seeing that huge smile or hearing a “hey sis” at sometimes the most random and most needed times. Rest easy Chris you will be missed by all of those whose life you touched. Keeping your family in prayer and thought. Till we meet again on the other side( and I’m sure yours will be one of the loudest and first welcomes I hear) much love.

Chris was a great ball of energy people loved being around him. Always thought of him as my uncle.. I'm sorry for his family loss.. I love u guys.. R.I.P. Shanley. We love and miss u already...

Sorry for your loss, I haven’t seen Chris in years but the funniest memory I have of him was in 4th grade he jumped out the 2nd story window of shreve elementary and ran to the bus it was the end of the day and mrs Emler about had a heart attack needless to say they escorted him off the bus and to the principals office, he was always fun and made you laugh!

Sorry for the loss many prayers for the family he left behind

I miss you already I won't hear your knock on the door, or ring the doorbell or calling me saying sis can I come over, Or you saying you making fudge again. then in the morning I come out in the kitchen and there's two or three pieces missing and I know who was in it and I just laugh. I already was wondering where you are. Love you Chris and miss you.

I'm deeply saddened to know that my brother I've never had, has gone too soon!! You are missed and loved by so many and I will cherish the memories of you. Fly high, RIP Shanley- and don't be making too much trouble up there with Billy! Love and miss you

Barb, I am truly sorry for your loss, please accept my deepest sympathy.

We had some unforgettable summers in the big town of Blachleyville Chris. We played a lot of tackle football, baseball, softball, kickball, basketball, etc. Your willingness to help someone out was like no other. Until we meet again.

I just don't understand you are such a great true friend! Endless memories some of my funniest times was around you. You will never be replaced! No one could be the person you are. Always helping and always just stretching the moment. I'm not sure what to say I know you went way before you should have. Always love you, never will I forget you! Fuckin never!

U we're like big brother to me miss and love you bro always missed never forgotten:)

You were a great person loved your children will be missed!
