“I Will Rise When HE Calls My Name”

The Baty/Stratton Family has gathered tonight at “The Lodge”.

Chris has changed significantly in the past day.  He still is able to communicate a little bit.

Please pray for Chris, Karen, Brenden, and Jaxson.

Please wait until the Morning Post before coming to visit.  We may have further directions about visiting hours.

On behalf of Chris,

The Baty/Stratton Family

    Chris, I’m sorry that I can’t be with you tonight in person, I know that you understand that I need to be home with AJ, but I’m with you in spirit. I wanted to thank you for these past few weeks, you have been so courageous and inspirational. You will live on in all of our hearts for the rest of our lives. Jen and I love you, Karen and the boys. I know you will watch over all of us in your next journey and Jen, AJ, and I will always be here for Karen and the boys. I feel so fortunate that our paths crossed and I know I’m a better person for it. Cancer may take your physical being but your spirit will live on with all of us who you touched during your all too short time with us on Earth.

    ..”I will rise, when He calls my name–no more sorrow, no more pain, I will rise, on eagles wings, before my God fall on my knees and rise..” “And I hear the voice of many angels sing, Worthy is the Lamb! And I hear the cry of every longing heart, Worthy is the Lamb!”

    I am praying for you guys.

    God’s peace be with you all. Chris, when I visited with you, you told me the very touching story about your Grandma and her guardian angel. I am thinking of that empty chair in your room right now. Please know that you and your family are being held in prayer by so many people. May you find comfort and peace in His presence.

    Chris – for me being someone with no faith I think about you always! I don’t really know if it’s praying but, wishing you peace. Peace, love & happiness for everything to everyone. Because of you, I’m trying not to take life for granted, to tell people things I think they need to know, no Chris, only nice things, I promise!!!

    You’ve made quite the impression on me and my heart, you’re getting a small memorial tattoo on me. A 5-pointed star, in our Proex colors with CB in the middle. I’ll send Karen a picture.

    You’ve impacted my life SO much, hell, we worked with each other for 10 years! I know Karen and I didn’t get off on the best foot but I was 15-16, and cocky, she held her ground but please know, I always respected her. As I always respected you! I may have had sarcastic comments, inappropriate jokes, but I always meant well.

    I will miss the positive influence you are and continue to be. I think of you everyday. I know too little, too late but, you’ve impacted my life imensenly.

    Sorry for the LONG post but, there were things that I guess I felt needed to be said before you “couldn’t” hear them.

    Just remember, you promised to let me know what God’s plan was for me, and to not scare me OR poltergeist me. LOL

    ALL my love to you, Karen, the boys and the rest of your families!
