When I came across the NSMB memorial this morning, it left a bit of an empty pit in my stomach. I didn't know Chris Turner well, at all, but I grew up playing soccer and going to school with his older brother John. I haven't spoken to John since graduating.
John: my sincerest condolences to you and your family for your loss. 28 is just way too young, but knowing your family's love for the outdoors, Chris surely lived every day.
