I knew Chris for many years growing up in Savannah. We attended junior and senior high school together. Like many people we drifted away after high school. I am sorry to hear about his death. He was a good friend and I will cherish the fond memories of our youth. My thoughts and prayers are with his family.

Danny Hamilton, Jacksonville, Fl

My sincere condolences to the family of Mr. Hinely, the Bible tells us that death is just a temporary thing. 1 Corinthians 15:26 tells us that death will soon be brought to nothing, which means it will no longer affect us in anyway. What a joyous time that will be.
