I was heartbroken and stunned to find out that my good friend Christopher Laurie died today in a tragic car accident. Christopher is the eldest son of Greg and Cathe Laurie and was an awesome guy and a great friend. We had just been texting back and forth last night and I was completely shocked to hear the news today. He loved Jesus and was such an awesome and sweet guy. This is a picture of him and his wife Brittany and their daughter Stella from their recent visit to Montana. I am so glad he got to come out here a few weeks ago on vacation and hang out when his dad spoke at fresh life. (here he is ripping it up on the wakeboard.) He was a super talented graphic designer whose work always inspired me, I have always been blown away by his creativity and artistic ability. He was genuine, kind, sincere and hilarious and he always made sure to let me know he was praying for me. He was a mac enthusiast and was always the first person I thought of when Apple released a new product or update, in fact the last text-conversation I had with him was about new iPhone applications. He lived his life outside the box, on fire for the Lord, and in love with his family. I will miss him but look forward to seeing him in heaven with Jesus. Please pray for his parents, Greg and Cathe, his wife Brittany, daughter Stella, their child on the way, and his younger brother Jonathan as they go through this difficult time.
