#IRunFor Christopher, My Sister’s Husband

By: Mike Modica, Imagine Supporter

#IRunFor Christopher Conologue. Chris is my sister Carol’s husband who died of cancer on February 12, 1998 two weeks after his 38th birthday. In addition to Carol, he left behind my eldest niece, Christa and fraternal twins Kayla and Colby. They were just 10 and 7 years old at the time. Unfortunately, there was no place like Imagine available at the time.
Not a day has gone by over the past 23 years without me thinking of Christopher. My son is named in honor of him, so that is easier than it sounds. I promised Christopher that I would look after Carol and the kids. I hope he thinks I am doing a good job. The kids are young adults now, all college graduates with good careers and bright futures.
