    Chris, I’m so very proud of you and for all that you accomplished in this life.

    You came in to this world fighting and you went out fighting and in those 33 years we learned a lot together. For all of those who have gotten to Heaven before you, those who loved you so much, tell them we said hello, give them a hug, and just be you.

    Time may help ease the pain of losing you but your smile, your laugh, your wit, your kindness, and most of all the love and affection you had for your mother will never be forgotten.

    Rest In Peace Sweet Boy
    I love you.
    “Daddy Jim”

  2. The Hilton Family says:

    We were so sad to hear about Chris’s passing. To me, I’ll always remember him more like a brother than a cousin. I’ll remember the fun we had swimming together in the summers, playing together during holidays, and a kinship we developed as we got older. I know he will find our family that has already passed in heaven welcoming him with open arms and warm hugs. Rest In Peace, Chris, we will see each other someday.
