I have observed this young man’s career and many accomplishments with admiration via FaceBook. I never met him. Yet through the pictures, postings, and his music, I felt a great connection. As a musician, I grieve the loss of his talents in the future. As a teacher, I grieve for those who taught him and whom he taught. And I have my greatest grief as a father. I cannot imagine losing a son in this manner so very young. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you. How I will miss watching Christopher and hearing his music.
