I am so sorry to just now hear of this! I was Chris' first grade teacher at Glendover at my first year there. I will never forget how gracious his father was at our first meeting when all the parents were coming into the room saying where is Mrs. ____________? His father went to get the principal so she explain that the previous teacher had taken a new job elsewhere. Then during that school year, Chris lost his father. I also remember Chris giving me a stuffed panda that had a frame with his school picture in it!!! 💜 I am a Christian and can't wait to see him again in Heaven! Blessings!!!!
Our sincerest condolences to Chris's family and dear friends, but especially Delia, Pat, and Dawn. Although it has been many years since I first met Chris and I unfortunately did not get to know him well, I still remember meeting him. He had such a beautiful smile and radiant personality! Even as a young man at that time he was always very polite and kind. Chris certainly was taken from this Earth far too soon, but the mark he left with others will surely continue on through them. In honor of his life, we made a donation to Bridge the Gap Lexington KY. There are no words that can be said to make this difficult time easier but please know you all are in our hearts and prayers. Hugs and love, Beth and Hope
Please forgive me for not being able to make it to your resting ceremony. We loved you so much brother. You are always remembered. Your memory will always inspire me to be better, to love God even more, to be organized, to be caring, to put God over Money, right bro! I love so much and your family too. I misssss youuuu. Please sing a praise for me in heaven! I’m glad I got to be around you, I’m glad you were my brother , I’m glad I spoke to you one last time. You will always inspire me. Please forgive the absence of your brother Craig Prophett, he was incarcerated. Pray for us all, as we continue to pray for the family to seek God and be blessed.
I'm so sad about this. The video was so touching. I knew Chris through work. I was a customer of his. Even though I didn't know him well, I always sensed his joy through every interaction I had with him. He was different. I will definitely miss him, but I find peace in knowing that I'll see him again one day.
Delia, I am so sorry to hear about Chris. You and your family are in my prayers.

Sitting here in tears and disbelief watching a pictorial view of his life. I was a customer of Chris's and loved talking with him over the phone. He was always encouraging and genuinely wanted to know how I was doing. It was nice to be able to chat with him about life and faith and no matter what he or I was calling about he always made it a point to touch on both of these things with me. He will surely be missed.
