"Today, in honour of Chris and the magnificence of your own
worlds, please take some time to reflect on why you're here.
Honour nature. Show someone extreme enthusiasm for one of
their ideas. Take a photo and send it around. Hug your kids,
hug your partner, hug your dog. Smile, or better yet, wave
fervently if an air-cooled Volkswagen drives by. Marvel at
technology. Celebrate good design. Raise a Guinness. Order
Shepherd's pie. Put your feet solidly on the ground and
Chris passed away on May 4 2009 from a wickedly fast and
furious battle with metastatic Melanoma. At 10:53pm, a
year ago today, he jumped onto the next star. This
evening, please put a candle out - for Chris, and for
all the others who have left us too soon. On your front
porch, or your balcony, on your window sill, or just
simply - light one in your heart. He'll see the sign."
We love you. We miss you. Your spirit soars....
Lori, Karl, Malcolm & Ben
