I like remembering what Chris has done very much and thank Seyoon for focusing on it. I would hate to think that my legacy would be determined by one of my last acts given that in my case it may be far different based on my age, mental stability, or family circumstance that I might not communicate with anyone.

Chris has served whenever called upon. He hasn't always been comfortable in doing it. He does not think of himself as a public figure, but he was on our behalf. He doesn't think of himself as a writer, but he was for us. He doesn't think of himself as a leader and would much prefer to be a loyal rank and file member, but he did this for us. Sitting in meetings was not what this country boy was all about, but he did it for us. More than all of this, he has been the friend with a listening ear, a man who would give his opinion when called upon but who always tried to hear me out first before offering it. I love the man, and, to the extent he will allow it, I'm going to continue to be his friend. I can't turn off the kinds of feelings our extended family puts in my heart, so Chris is a permanent resident, even if we no longer communicate. My memory will place far more emphasis on his decades of service than his last note. Maybe some day people will return the favor when my last note or utterance makes them sad, uncomfortable, or downright blue.
