The Passing of Chris W.

Friends:

It is with much sadness that I inform you that our friend Chris W. - one third of the founding membership of "We Agnostics" - has passed away.

Chris died in the early hours of February 12, 2014, after a brief battle with aggressive liver cancer.

Chris was a fixture in local AA. His desire to make a place for like-minded alcoholics was instrumental in having this little group come into existence. Were it not for Chris pulling me aside after a typical AA meeting in which I'd spoken about being an atheist, this group might not exist.

Chris loved life, was honest about his struggles, served with an open heart, and stood with an open hand willing to help a newcomer.

I miss him already. My world is a little more lonely tonight.

Fare thee well, Chris.
