I'm so sorry for the loss of your son. Christopher was a Marine friend of my son, William (Billy)Hunt in HI. Billy received a phone call from Chris's roommate at 2:30 a.m. yesterday. And was deeply saddened when he heard of his death. My prayers are with you and your family as you work through the grieving process of deeply missing your son. A popular bible vs. comes to my mind from the book of Isaiah. Isaiah 40: vs 31. But those who wait upon The Lord will renew their strength. They will soar like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. In deepest sympathy, Alison Hunt

Chris was my room mate at Marine Corps Base Hawaii after we got back from deployment. He was a hard charger and a hell of a Marine. Chris was the type of guy who would give you the shirt off his back if you asked him. He always had a grin on his face no matter how bad the day got. My fondest memory of Chris was the time he shaved his head and it got sunburnt and infected. He looked like an alien for a week. But Chris was always willing to laugh about it. Bill Hunt called me close to mid night on Easter sunday to break the news to me. I was crushed. Chris I miss you and my thoughts and prayers will be with you and your family. Simper Fi. Sully
