Guestbook

It was a sad day when we received the news. Our hearts were broken and a void grew. Everyone who knew Christian, loved him. He lit up the room...he was the brightest light....Chris always acknowledged you and made you feel that you were a part of his life. He genuinely cared. Chris was light-hearted and was enthusiastic about his pursuits. In true Carlson fashion, Chris opened his life, his home, and his heart to you, as you were considered a friend/family member. Our thoughts and prayers are sent out to Erin and the entire Mansfield and Carlson families with deepest sympathy and love....

JP and Terry,
I am so sorry to hear of the untimely passing of Christian. Though I never met him, by all accounts he was a fine young man with a heart of gold. He will be sorely missed and believe me when I say you will think of him every day. And those thoughts will, over time, bring a smile as you remember all of the good things he brought to your lives. Please express my sympathy to Chrisitian's wife and family.
Mike
