I stumbled upon this page while doing some research for a college paper. I have to say that Chris was one of the happiest and most enjoyable guys I have ever had the please of knowing. I remember to good old days where I use to work for Ryan and Chris in their True North lax store in Pennington NJ. The laughter and joke we all shared would leave my cheeks hurting after a day of work. I am so happy I had the opportunity to personally know Chris and have him as a coach and mentor. The years I spent playing on his teams and going to his camps made me realize how much of a great person and athlete he was. I still think of Chris every now and then and I truly do miss him. Stay Strong Sanderson's you are always in my prayers!

Dear Brogann & Family: Not a day flys by that I don't "smile". The memories of Chris, his family and his friends are the best medicine in the world. I was on a holiday with my family for March Break. Driving through West Virginia (a favorite place) made my heart burst with "COURAGE". I wish you joy. I wish you energy. And I wish you great memories.

Good morning Brogann - I just wanted to let you know that I am still thinking of you and girls all the time.

I do hope you are dealing with life to the best of your ability with all the things that have transpired over the last 3+ years.  Girls must be back in school and am sure they are having a good time being with their school friends.

Do take care of yourself Brogann - and we were sorry we were not able to be at the memorial service here in Orangeville as were in PEI vacationing but have you all of the family and friends in our hearts.

Hi Chris, I met you at the World Champs in Manchester where my son was playing for England,,,, We had a very brief chat and you said how much longer you wanted to live so that the girls would remember you... You are a legend and an incredibly inspirational and brave man, Heaven has one of the greatest goalies that lacrosse has seen, at last your chance to build the dream team. We have just won gold in Amsterdam and wore our armbands to respect you.... Sorry Chris and to your loving wife and family,,,,,,,,

Brogan  You are always in my thoughts and prayers as you continue your journey without Chris by your side, although he is always really by your side.  Now as you continue your new normal please know that we still think of you often and hope that your journey is full of peace and hope   Christine

To Brogann and the girls:


 


We don't know you, but I hit on Chris's site by mistake and was inspired by your strength, courage and the love I can feel , for each other, coming through your updates. Our prayers are with you at this difficult time. Chris showed such courage during his journey and will be remembered by all who knew him.


 


We have friends that lost their 5 year old son in March and we have followed his journey through the Caring Bridge site. That is how I happened to hit on Chris's site today. They are keeping everyone up to date on how they are coping day to day.


 


Stay strong, love your  girls well.

Brogann,

I am deeply sorry for your loss. I didn't know you or Chris but my sister-in-law went to school with Ryan and knew Chris through him. She passed on hearing about his story. With reading this, I have to say I admire your courage for sharing all this with everyone on here. I can sense the love that they two of you shared for each other and your kids. It's evident in the pictures and the words that you chose to express.
My heart aches for you and your kids during this time and I'm praying that you will find comfort in this sad time. Chris will be deeply missed and he will be remembered by the lives of the people he touched, taught and loved. His smile was contagious, as was his strength through this whole journey.
Thank you for allowing all of us a glimpse into a portion of your lives. You are such a strong person.

Brogann,

I loved watching the memorial video. So incredibly sad...a good life taken much too soon. On a funny note, I got a kick out of the many transitions in hairstyles worn by Chris. I wish we had known him. With his quick wit, humor, athleticism, and love of family, I know he and my husband would have become fast friends on your trips to Big Survey.

I can't imagine how you and the girls are doing. Grief is so hard and such a long journey. I hope to see a post from you in the coming weeks to share with us how you all are doing. You are a gifted writer and I would love to read more. Maybe you could start a blog when you feel like it's time to say goodbye to your Caring Bridge posts.

Think of you daily and pray for your strength.

Hi.  You don't know me, but I found your CaringBridge site through a fellow brain cancer wife, Jennifer Voliner.  My husband, Josh, also has GBM.  He was diagnosed at the age of 33 on 9/30/10.  We have one daughter, Brea Claire who turned 3 this past April.  I just wanted to send you my deepest sympathies and thoughts and prayers for you and your girls.  From reading your story I can see that you all have put up a good fight against this horrible cancer and that Chris lived his life to the fullest!


Love,

It is with great sadness that I send my condolences to the Sanderson and Gerrie Families.  Our thoughts and prayers are with them in these tough times.  .
Chirs will forever be remembered as a devoted husband, dedciated and loving father, loving son, great teammate, fierce competitor and one fo the greatest and most passionate ambassadors for the sport of Lacrosse.
For me he was the measuring stick for which all future players would be judged as he was the player who gave everything to his team and the sport. 

RIP Geese.

Thank you so much for sharing this beautiful video. My favorite memory of Chris is on his wedding day and walking with him and his groomsmen to Trinity Church accompanied by a bagpiper. They were all in kilts and were a bit of a traffic stopper. A bit hungover perhaps too, after some fun at Conte's the day before!  He is the Light and he is with the Light. Love and laughter and great hugs and joy to Stevie, Clementine and Brogann.

 

Love,
