May 1st, 2013 - This was the last opportunity that I had to wish you a Happy Birthday. I called, we chatted. You probably received a funny card and a silly gift. Not a day goes by that you do not cross my mind. A moped goes by during lunch and I start laughing as I see you running around Marblehead on yours honking the horn, waving with a huge grin. We were the furthest apart in age and distance but had the most in common. None of us knew that 2013 would be your last year with us. In 22 years you accomplished more than most do in a lifetime. You accepted everyone and offered a helping hand wherever you stepped foot. You taught me to cherish every day and life life to the fullest. Happy 25th Birthday Chris!
P.S. Mom is finding a ridiculous amount of beach glass. Do you have anything to do with this?
If you don't go after what you want, you'll never have it. If you don't ask, the answer is always no. If you don't step forward, you'll always be in the same place. - Chris Deerhake

I'll just go ahead and end with this.
It's a great day to be alive, I know the suns still shining when I close my eyes. - Chris Deerhake
