Memorial and Information About Chris Gray (ChrisFol)

Postby axbauer » Fri Aug 31, 2012 7:14 pm

First I would like to thank this community for its outreach of love and compassion for myself and my family at this time. For those of you concerned that I did not get ahold of the individual with Chris at the time of his death, be assured that I have connected with him. He is a wonderful, well spoken, courageous person who did all that he could for my husband and for that I am grateful.

I wanted to give you information about Chris's memorial. For those of you interested in going, here are the details:

September 15, 1:00pm
Summit Lake

I would also like to share with you that we are tenatively planning a memorial hike to Crestone Peak to finish out Chris's journey to the summit. This will take place September 21st - 22nd. Myself, some family members and friends will stay at the base of the mountain while other more experienced climbers will reach the peak and spread a small portion of his ashes at the summit. All are welcome.

I would like to share the last photo of Chris taken by his hiking partner on the day of the accident.

Thanks for letting us share our thoughts with you Taylor and thanks for putting up this info. I will for sure try to be there. We hope you and family are holding together well.
- Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls.
