“I, our families and friends, wish to express our deepest gratitude for the overwhelming expressions of tenderness, love and tribute in honour of my beloved Christopher.
Our hearts are broken, but we find comfort knowing his generous, larger-than-life spirit lives on.
From the moment I met Christopher, we went forward in life, side by side and shoulder to shoulder. He was my best friend, my confidante, my partner, my one love.
Over 27 years, we built a beautiful life together; always remembered, always cherished.
As we find our way through this difficult time, we are asking for privacy.
Thank you for your understanding.”
