It was such a privilege to be next door neighbors to the Whittakers for several years. Chris was the first one to help me with anything that I needed. The whole family would take turns mowing the yard and trimming. Chris was always coming over to ensure that the job was done and that it was done well. If I was lifting something he thought was too heavy he would run right over and take care of it. He very much was a teacher and excellent example to his family.
Another memory will be the many cars he took from wrecked to new looking cars. I always thought how does he get the energy to work every day from early morning and then come home and work on the cars until late at night, yet never did I see him work on Sunday.
I knew he had a strong testimony of the gospel and loved his family. He will always be a strong example to me of what the Lord said "Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.
My heart is aching for you Jenn, Wesley, Michael and Jessica and I pray that you will have comfort attend you now and in the days ahead. He loves you each very much and will be near you in spirit.
