Chris was a sweet young man. I remember him helping my son at Arbor Station and always making him laugh. Matthew and I send love and prayers. May God comfort you in this time of sorrow.

Our hearts were broken when we read about Chris’s death at only 29. My grandfather Hal Dixson and Martha Traylor’s grandfather were brothers. I watched Chris’s dad Michael grow up in the Methodist Church in Bowdon. Even though I never met Chris, I regret that his life ended so soon.Our prayers are with you and your family. May his soul rest in peace.
