I want to offer condolences and prayers
for the loss of your loved one Chris Lily.
The other side of the family, the Kindsfathers, are just as devastated but have been excluded.

Ms. Lilly, Mr. Dudley, Amy and all of Chris’s family: I’m so incredibly sorry for the heartache and pain you’re experiencing right now. When I first met Chris, I thought he was on odd one for sure but that was only because I didn’t know him and later found out I was the ‘odd’ one. Once I got to know him, he was funny, muy inteligente, did not conform to societal “norms” which made him that much more of a “wise acre” as we would say jokingly in high school; most importantly he was one heck of a friend. He pushed me outside my comfort zones in any class that we had together. I loved debating with him on anything really. Chris helped me see that just because you are pro something does not mean you have to be nay to everything opposing. I guess you could say, he showed me how to debate both sides equally.
We lost a mutual friend quite a few years ago and every time I’d see Chris, I was reminded of said friend. Our communications became further and further apart. We recently connected again on Facebook. After my lengthy conversation of how I got myself down the road I had been on, Chris told me, “hey but you’re living life aren’t you?” I told him that I didn’t think that was living life at all. His response, “Sarah, no one ever said this is how you do it and any variation of that is bad. Pick yourself up, learn from your mistakes and if you get bored, message me instead of doing....”; the last part is not as important to me as the first part. He did not judge, he did not criticize, he offered support. From that time until about two weeks ago, we checked on each other every week. I’ll miss your wise words from an old soul in a young body.

Josh Thomas.
