of Christopher's Passing

Memories & Candles
I don't know why I waited this long to leave a message here. I've been thinking of Mac a lot today. I think when it comes down to it, all I can really say is he was everything I ever wanted to be as a Marine. Someone anyone who ever wore the blood stripes could emulate.

Dear McDonald family, The Damon Wainscoar family send our deepest sympathy for the loose of Christopher.
I am a life member of the VFW Chapter 1503 " Chesty Puller". Dean Holbrook a class mate of mine sent me some pictire a while back on the return of Chris from Iraqua. He contacted me in regards to his passing.
He will always be a Marine and held in high esteem for his contribution to his Country .family, Honor and God. We will have a Mass said in his name.this week.

You will not be forgotten. Today we laid you to rest. Rest in peace and save me a seat at your table in the place where those who have earned the title of "hero" look down from the heavens. We will meet again. I love you brother.
