Losing a Good Guy


On Friday I attended the funeral of our Executive Director, Chris White. He was killed while walking down the sidewalk in front of his church in Wilmington, Delaware. The driver of the car that hit him never stopped.

I was so lucky to have known Chris. Besides heading our organization, he was a prankster, a father, a husband and a friend. He was one of the most decent people I know. He always saw the good in people. He would go out of his way to help people.

This photo shows Chris pushing one of our staff on a dolly. He was helping us move into our new offices which he worked so hard to get for our organization.
The world has lost one of the few good guys. Chris leaves behind a loving wife and two wonderful children. And a world of people saying "Thank You".
