Christopher spent his life living the way he wanted to live. He always stayed true to who and how he was no matter what obstacle was ahead of him. He was an abundance of characteristics, as he was many characters in different lights. Christopher’s name holds a great amount of happiness to anyone who knew him. If you heard his laugh, you laughed. When you saw his smile, you smiled. He was welcomed into this world by an army of his own - one he always protected, when necessary, at any cost. Christopher had many things to get him through a regular day but he loved nothing more than his family. Though Christopher was always his own person, he never broke ties with the ones he wanted around him. When he loved you, you just knew it.
