I’m in total shock after the terrible news that Chris has left us. We’ve worked together at the Bayerische Staatsoper in Munich. Chris’s smile, positivity, kindness were always so heart warming. We hadn’t been in touch in years, when he randomly wrote me about a month ago to congratulate me on a performance he had taken the time to watch. I felt really touched and was looking forward to seeing him soon in Munich, as he had planned to travel to. 

Chris, I wish you a beautiful journey wherever you are now. Be in peace, you will be dearly missed and I’ll always remember you. The world needs people like you.
