    “Turn Up”, “It’s Cute”, “slightly and politely”, etc. are indeed the short and distinct phrases that will live on in our hearts forever. Mocha, as we knew Chris, attended the Acceptance Worship Center in Portsmouth, VA frequently. Mocha loved to sing with me and I can hear, even now, that deep baritone voice as I write. When Mocha joined us for dinner, at our home or at a restaurant, it was always a blast! The stories I could share. I do not have enough space to write. Mocha called my mother on her birthday and treated her liked we shared her. I could on and on. On behalf on the Acceptance Worship Center family, please know that we are praying for your strength and that we grieve with you as well. We continue to stand on the promise that we will meet again in the life to come and that we all now have a new guardian angel. I close. ~The Rev. Dr. Ronald L. White, Bishop of the The Acceptance Worship Center, Portsmouth, VA

      Chris you was amazing. You never met a stranger. You shined your light and grace with every one you have met and known. You was outgoing kindhearted and always fun to be around. You are truly going to be missed. As I sit and reflect on our friendship and all the wonderful adventures we had there will never be anyone that could ever compare to you. I’m going to miss you so much. No one has made me smile and laugh and give me joy as much as you have and It was a pleasure to have you as my Friend.
