    Several of us have been contacted about Chris from his friends in the states, wanting to know about Chris. I'm doing this in hopes they will understand he was respected a here and many friends. Hopefully they can some find some closure through this.

    Chris rested in his home, before his final journey

    Many Thai's from the village paid their respects

    Chris's bike was brought to the final resting spot for him. Many bikers came there was very little notice so not all his friends could make it. The was an additional memorial ride done for him.

    Chris's wife Toy, she received emotional and financial help from Chris's friends.

    This is not the sort of thing that I normally do, I hope I have shown it the respect it and he deserves. In any event it's the best I could do. I hope it offers a picture to Chris's friend in America of the friends he had here.

    BK18.

    Very moving! I am sure he would have approved of a send off like this one.

    Although I did not know the man it is great to see people come together for a fitting send of as well as taking the time to post the pics for others who could not make it to enjoy.

    Well done everyone.

    Hello everyone. I'm a friend of Chris's from the states and I was so happy to see the pictures that Ray has posted and yes it does help with some closesure. Chris and I where good friends for 30 years and I still miss him today. I was emailing with him until he stopped replying, I guess he was to sick and was to proud to say anything. Thanks again.

    Rest In Peace my friend !
