» Chris RIP
Mood: shocked
Sorry if this comes across scattered or incoherent...I need to say this, but I'm still processing what I just found out...

By now I'm guessing most of you have seen the notice on the home page, or the posts in the forum, Chris (aka Me) has passed away. He and I were good friends, and though we never met face to face I would count him among my best. We shared a love of The Monkees, The Three Stooges and The Twilight Zone. He referred to me a few times like I was a long lost brother. In one of the last emails I sent I called him my brother from another mother. Both were true. A year ago when I had a chance to meet Micky Dolenz of the Monkees I immediately knew I had to get an autograph for Chris! I asked him for his mailing address and sent it to him...I could hear the excitement in his email when it arrived. Several months later, I arrived home from work and found a package waiting at my door. A set of Monkees bobble-heads. I knew it could only be from one person...that's just the kind of guy he was. He's told me about his illnesses, his discomfort, and explained they were the reason that he was around less and less. Then he stopped replying to my PMs. I tried email, and messages on Facebook, but they went unanswered as well...

I know he is finally at peace...but I'm gonna miss him like the brother I never had.

Goodbye my friend...

Thanks for sharing some great memories about him, TJ. I wish I had gotten to know him better.

I know this post is a little late, but I would like to pay my respects. Chris was a great man, and no one can doubt what he did for the site.

OMG... Too much death. I didn't know. He had become one of the only reasons I came to this site for a very long time, now I feel bad for leaving at all. RIP Chris, no more pain.
