Thank you John for remembering Christopher. I just saw your message while looking up information about the case. I miss Christopher so much & feel broken hearted!

I hope to have a candle light peace gathering when the trial is over. This is all so tragic from any perspective!

Let there be peace,
Christopher's Mom
