  33. I’ve known Chris since we were barely teenagers. It’s very difficult to lose a friend who I’ve spent so much time with. All of high school, times while in college and keeping up with him lately. Chris was a wonderful, kind , loving person who would offer his home to anyone who needed to talk. My sincerest condolences to the Dobson family. You mean a lot to me. I love you and I will miss Chris very much.

    John, Susan, and family, we are sending our love and prayers at this difficult time. It is heartbreaking to lose someone young and full of life. Chris was a wonderful young man and will be missed.

  40. Chris was my very best friend in high school, he helped me through them times more than he knew… We did everything together, from jamming in the car, to karoke at the bar, and everything in between.. He will always be a part of my life and has given me some of the best memories a friend could ask for. He was one of the smartest, charmingest, funniest, lovingest dudes anyone could ever have the pleasure of knowing! I love you Chris, this life is short and fragile and flimsy, so Rest in Peace My Friend!!! I’ll see you soon!

  41. Rose and Sam Quintana :

    We are so sorry for your loss, our condolences. Chris was a very good friend to our son Mario Quintana. They hung out a lot in their early years of high school. They painted our house, and he also went with us to a family re-union in New Mexico. I also enjoyed the musicals and when they were in choir. I pray God will be with you all in your time of sorrow, and comforts all of you. Rest in peace Chris.

  42. I remember Chris running around St. Paul church with the Kershaw boys. John and Susan are the nicest, happiest people I remember from there. My prayers to all of you.

  43. John and family: I Am so very sorry for your loss. The pain, I know, is overwhelming. Hold tight to each other and know that you will have each other as you navigate through this keeping Chris alive in your hearts.

  44. Hey buddy,
    I guess I wish I’d known when you called last month that that would be the last time we ever spoke. You told me you were worried and some things weren’t going well, I hope I helped a little, maybe not enough. All those things you mentioned, yeah, I remember them all. I never knew I was so important to you, or how sentimental you really were, until you called. Thank you for that. Thank you for always being so sweet, and silly, and for dancing with me at my graduation party. Thank you for Big Fish, and The Goonies after prom. You were and always will be my huckleberry. God speed old friend, and save me seat.

  45. I always admired his spunk and smile. You will be missed. For now rest in peace. I’m sorry for your lost Mr. and Mrs. Dobson

  46. Not only did I go to High School with Chris, our paths crossed again when I employed him at Best Buy in Pueblo, Co. He was such an outgoing, happy and amazing guy. He will be truly missed by all who knew him. Many condolences to all his family.

  47. Praying you find peace during this difficult time. Keeping your family in my thoughts and prayers.

  48. Shocked and saddened by this news. I’m praying comfort for the whole family.

  49. Clearthur Mangram :

    My heart is heavy for the Dobson family. Whenever I reflect on my high school years, Chris is one of those people who comes to mind. He was one that loved and loved with his all. I wish I could have stayed connected with him. My prayers and thoughts are with you all.

  50. Heather DiIorio :

  51. Susan and John
    I am so sorry for the loss of your son Chris. Keeping you and your family in my prayers.

  52. Susan and John,
    I am so very sorry. I cannot imagine. Please know you are in my thoughts and prayers.

  53. I’m trying to find a theme or lugin that might be able to fix this problem.Most impoprtant point is choosing words

  54. My heart breaks every time I hear of another loss. There is nothing more disheartening than knowing the next time we will meet will be in heaven. It is disheartening because those of us left, feel the loss, and are left here to grieve. My deepest condolences to all who knew and loved Chris. My deepest condolences to all who know and love someone who knew Chris even if they themselves did not. Grief affects us all, so we all need to stick together and give each other hope for a new life where death is not allowed. Remember the good times and forget the bad. Love endures forever but hate is fleeting and will soon be a distant memory. Chris was loved by so many people and his loving memory will endure forever and when we are all raised into heaven, Chris will be waiting to greet us. That is the hope we must cling to, for death shall reign only a short time, then eternity begins with it just a distant memory. I love all of you! I will be glad when none of us has to ever grieve again! Until then, I am here praying for all of us to get through the dark days and step into the light.
