Chris was a one in a million type of person. There is and always will be a story that includes - "and than Coulson". Chris was towing way before CTR. The times of running trails in mountains, usually he was pulling out others in the gang, but I remember one specific time, the black truck "stoped" and we all looked at Chris like what the hell. He turned and said "we are stuck". Laughed so hard. You could go for even years but when you seen him the same friendship was there like it was yesterday. One time my ex boyfriend slide sideways into a tree on a bank in the snow, tree only thing keeping us from going down the bank. We walked the snowy cold road to a payphone and called Chris, he came right out in his big black Chevy and started hooking chains to the truck, I asked is it going to damage it? With out missing a beat he said, "no more than when he hit it". I knew him over half our lives and I have not one bad thing to say or remember about him. He will be talked about forever for his adventures and fun he has shared with all of us at one point I'm sure of that. He ALWAYS lite up a room!! Larger than life was his personality. Always a smile and that chuckle. God took you to early my friend, but he only takes the best young. So that he did, took one of the best! Thanks for always being a friend!
Gone is your body but your spirit will life on in each person you knew, that I know. God speed my friend!! Til we all meet again.

Chris Coulson... I am in a state of shock. I cannot believe you're gone. I know I didn't see you that often but when I did, you always had that amazing smile that lit anyone right up. You were there for me and my whole family more times than I can remember throughout my years and I cannot thank you enough. I hope you knew how much I appreciated you and your friendship. Until we meet again my friend.... God Rest Your Soul and God Bless Kris and your family & friends. You are loved and missed♥♥.
