Itâ€™s hard to know what to say at a time like this. Our hearts are just broken for the whole Mathis family and for all the people who have known and loved Chris. He was a good man and he will be missed and remembered for a long time.
The memories and good times I have growing up with this guy. Whether it was crawdad hunting, muddin in the creek, shooting at possums and being chased up a tree fort, boy oh boy we sure had it good. Cousins are your first â€œbestâ€ friend in life â€¦and Chris was the Best! Sending the Mathis family my deepest condolences, his spirit will forever remain in the hearts of all who knew and loved him.
Tom, Brenda and family, our prayers will remain with the Mathis family for Godâ€™s comfort to carry you through each minute of each day as you suffer the loss of Chris. Chris was such a fine young man and I am thankful to have had the opportunity to know him. Love to your family -

We never know the value of a moment, until it becomes a memory. The story of â€œLifeâ€ is quicker than the blink of an eye. It goes from â€œHelloâ€, to â€œGoodbyeâ€, and then to â€œUntil We Meet Againâ€. Chris was a great person, and he was loved by many. He will be missed dearly. It breaks my heart that I never got the chance, to tell him how great of a friend he was to me. My heart goes out to his family. They will forever be in my thoughts and prayers.
Holding all of you close in our thoughts and prayers. We are so sorry for your loss. Love you all.
