  44. Leigh Hinson

    Chris was the big brother that Tyler and I didn’t have. He spent summers with us as a teenager, teaching us how to fish, catch snakes, and pester, but not truly annoy, alligators. He went on family vacations with us…you should have seen him trying to lug all those suitcases Ginger made him pack around New York City! His love of nature definitely inspired me as a kid, and there is not a better gift I can imagine. Chris always told a great story and enjoyed every bit out of life, which made people want to be around him. I’ll always remember my times with him very fondly.
    McKenzie Ann and Lajoe, I got to experience the kind of dad Chris would become, and y’all are very lucky to be his kids. He knew he was blessed to have you. In time, the memories will come with more smiles than tears, and I wish you peace and strength in the days to come.

  45. Patty and Jeremy Green

    We are so sorry and wishing you well. Jeremy and Patty Green (Smith).

  46. Randy Powell

    Terri, I’m praying that God will wrap his loving arms around you and the family and give you comfort and peace in this tragic loss. Chris was so full of life, always laughing and cutting up. We certainly had some laughs together over the years. Please know that you are in my prayers.

  47. Richard & Ramona Burrows

    Teri, we are so so sorry. We will continue to pray for you all.

  48. Randy Kinard-Melinda Martin

    Joey and LA. I just heard about your loss. So sorry. So sad. Melinda and I send our condolences and prayers to you and your family.

  49. Tyler Hinson

    Terri, McKenzie Ann and Lajoe y’all are fortunate to have had Chris in your family. Even though he is not there he will always be with you. When I was a kid he was the coolest person I knew, I looked up to him. Every Christmas at Big Daddy’s I would wait for him to show up. When he would take me dove hunting I was so excited. Later as a teenager me and Leigh would go to y’alls house on Christmas Eve and put present together. I’m sure I bugged him but he always put up with me. Truly a great man.

  50. Ian and Andrea Alerre

    Terri,
