On May 24, 2010 Spc Christopher Ryan Barton made the ultimate sacrifice for his country while serving in Afghanistan.
Christopher was more than just a soldier. He was a husband, a brother, a friend and a son. The world is a lesser place without him, but was forever changed by his short existence. Although his life passed by in the blink of an eye, those who knew Christopher will never forget him. His smile was infectious and his laughter was contagious. I miss his voice and his singing and his jokes. I miss how he and his brothers always cut up with each other and I miss our family nights.
I didn't think we could ever be more proud of him and man he was becoming.
I would move heaven and earth for just one more conversation with him. He will live on in our hearts forever, but is desperately missed. We must never forget.
