So many people are mourning the loss today of Christopher Robin Odle. Six weeks ago I was sitting around a campfire with him singing songs and taking pictures...today he is gone. I'm shocked, confused and in disbelief at the moment. Cancer is so powerful and at times it seems almost patient in its destruction. Not in this instance.

Chris, when I hugged you goodbye on July 3rd I never could have imagined that it would really be goodbye.

Thanks for your wonderful smile, all the laughter and especially the music.
