    I remember going to see Titanic with you when we were 14. You were such a gentleman to sit through that with me… Just so we could hang out. And almost 20 years later … You went out of your way to come by my mom’s 65th birthday… Same gentleman. Those things maken you forever wonderful and unforgettable.

    Where do I begin?
    I am devastated to hear the news that you’re gone.
    We worked together at Stop and Shop while I was in high school before moving to college. My daily shifts were with you. I remember becoming even closer with you when I moved behind the customer service booth. The constant jokes, the laughs, our shift were fun. You were always like a big brother to me and I will forever be thankful for that. Thanks for getting me the hotel room for my senior prom haha.

    There are so many things I will remember you for. But most importantly the love and respect you showed to those you were friends and close with. My heart breaks for your parents, sister and 2 beautiful babies. My heart also hurts for all of our friends who mourn your loss. We should be getting together tonight to catch up on past times over drinks, not getting together to say goodbye.
    Please help those who need your guidance. Show us all signs that you are okay. I know you will always be with us, but in a different form. Give my brother a hug from me. I will miss you. Rest Easy I love you…

    Chris was a good friend of mine. We never kept in contact after I moved to Florida.
    In the movie Good Will Hunting, Robin Williams tells Matt Damon that after losing his wife that it’s the small and simple things that we remember about someone who has passed.
    As for Chris I can always remember him bringing some fine cigars every time we would get together.
    He was an honest, fun, amazing, and truthful friend you could always count on. I would be there if I could to wish you good bye. You will always be remembered in my heart as a good friend.
    I wish you and your family nothing but my deepest condolences.
    I love you buddy, your friend Justin Moschella.

    I don’t even know where to begin…

    Chris has been my best friend since we were 6 years old. It’s been 29yrs and we still had that strong bond since we were kids. We may of had our differences, us and downs, but the one thing that always brought us back together was the live we had for eachother. Chris was my brother. Not from blood, but frthey’ve and our decades of friendship. Every single memory in my past involved Chris 99% of the time. We did everything together, and that’s something I will cherish for my life time.
    There wasn’t a soul that didn’t like Chris. His smile lit up the room, and he was the one that would make me smile when I frowned.

    I love so much Chris. I am devastated by this, but will always know that the pain I feel means the impact you have had in my life.

    I am deeply sorry Kim and Amanda…. If there is anything you need or something you want to express. Please don’t hesitate.

    Love you always,

    You’re brother,
