"Christopher also loved beavers because they build too"
Christopher always loved to build and play with Legos. He was all boy though,
and also played with Micro Machines, Batman figures, construction vehicles,
and pretended to be a policeman or army man.
Oh, and Christopher loved anything to do with Star Wars. How thrilled he
would be to know that they are now coming out with Star Wars Legos! But his
absolute favorite past-time was building, particularly with his beloved
Legos. We could spend an entire day playing with Legos.
Christopher and I would build a space station, or an undersea port, or a
castle, or a fort. Then we would build vehicles for each of the good guys and
for the bad guys, too. Every time, I would be the bad guys on attack, and
Christopher would be the good guys defending their base. In Christopher’s
world, the good guys always won. So I will never understand why such a good
little boy was not permitted to win his own battle.
My love for you, Christopher, is never ending. The one thing that keeps me
going is the hope that one day we will be reunited and will again be building with Legos, and you will be the winner.
With all my love, forever,
for Maria, remembering Christopher,

My heart cries out, "Oh, Christopher!
Where are you, precious one?
I'm missing you, I can't believe you're gone
My sweet little angel son"
Then I hear a giggle
And , incongruous as it seems
Amidst my grief I heard my son's voice
Coming to me on sun beams
Hey, Mommy! I've got a surprise for you!
I can't wait until you see
the lego castle that I made
It's waiting for you and me
Around my special castle
I've built a great big moat
With a waterfall sparkling into it
Where my beaver friends can float
I wish you could be with me now
And see all that I've done.
But tasks are still waiting for you
You've yet to fulfill your mission
Until that time when you arrive
I'll send signs and watch and play
I'll greet you with a great big hug
On your heaven day
I'd like to thank Jamie VanDerMeer for remembering Christopher with this beautiful poem and for inspiring me, Rosemary, to create this web page in his memory.

"Christopher loved building with Legos so much that he was known as 'The LegoKid.' To honor Christopher, the Lego Company has named the figure called Chris Com Link for him.
To quote from the letter that the Lego company sent to Christopher's family -- "The guiding principal of our Company since it was founded has always been, 'Only the Best is Good Enough.' Christopher's story is a wonderful testimonial that our efforts are worthwhile. We will explore opportunities to share it with employees throughout the Company.
To acknowledge Christopher's special fondness for LEGO products, we will display his photograph in the Maniac Madness section of the July issue of the LEGO Mania Magazine. Also, a new mini-figure character, within the New PossiBuildities section, will be named after Christopher."
THE SWEETEST ANGEL OF ALL
It Seems So Unreal That You Are Not Here
Your Mommy Keeps Searching As Her Eyes Fill With Tears
Why, Oh Why, Did You Have To Leave
Your Mommy and Daddy Were Left To Grieve
See The New Legos That They Have Put Out
But I'm Sure Yours Are Better, Of This There's No Doubt
I Know There Are Beavers With Real Tiny Wings
Soaring With Angels and Heavenly Things
Christopher Angel I Know You So Well
One Day I Will Meet You In God's Home Where You Dwell
