"To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate the beauty; to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded."

                                                            -Ralph Waldo Emerson

Beloved son, brother and friend
A man who lives his life with honor, does not always know peace. He is willing to do what is right for justice and balance. He fights for his family, for love, he forsakes personal gain for the greater good of others. Honesty and loyalty are qualities we often take for granted, but when a man holds these vows true in his heart, he becomes a man of honor to the end. To Christopher our fallen brother, your body may be gone but all that you stood for still holds firm. There will be times ahead when we find our honor tested by the adversities of life, but we are always guided back to the righteous path by the Honor you left behind. We will never forget the way you inspired us to simply do the right thing. For that we are eternally grateful. We can all rest easy knowing heaven is a safer place with you on duty. God Speed brother, Christopher Hoffmann
