“I felt a great disturbance in the Force, as if millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror, and were suddenly silenced. I fear something terrible has happened.”
Our beloved Chris decided to peace out this morning. His mother was there. Cindy told him to go, find peace, don’t hang on for us. The pain was bad. It was time.
As with all of you who have experienced profound loss such as this, I am aching. My bones ache.
I seek solace in the fact that so many of you, some who had never even met Chris, are sending your love and condolences to Cindy. To the tribe. For we are all connected. We are all loved and we are all hurting a bit.
Chris taught me so much about living.
LIVE THIS FUCKING LIFE.
and I know that I’ll write more about that as the days continue to roll on. Unbeknownst to me how that happens, how there is an entire world out there that continues as if nothing has happened…yet it does.
But for today…I celebrate him. I celebrate the legacy that he leaves behind. There isn’t a person who met him, that didn’t smile.
We should all live this life so well.
Somewhere, in a galaxy far far away, I hope he’s walking into the cantina and ordering a pint. And I hope instead of bar nuts, there’s a giant bowl of bacon.
Godspeed my beautiful boy.
