I was so sadden to hear about Kris when this accident happened. When I moved to Shreveport with my family, Kris and his family lived in the same apartment complex. Kris was the first person I met in Shreveport and our families became friends. I will forever miss his smile and those looks he could give you with his eyes. We had so many good times, from riding motorcycles, going crawfishing, and catching snakes!

Kris was one of those guys who could make you laugh with just a look!  We went through Youree Drive Junior High and Captain Shreve together and he was just a great guy.  I was so saddened to read about his hunting accident.  Though I am sure heaven is a bit brighter now with his smile.

I remember when I first became a student at Shreve and was in class with Kris. He came and sat near me and introduced himself to me. He was one of the first new friends I had met. He kept me laughing all the time. Kris was truly one of those persons that always made you smile from merely looking upon his face. He was a great friend and I know it's a lot of smiling going on in heaven with Kris' presence.
