Chris' name was one of the first to be hand-engraved onto the walls of the Armed Forces Memorial, soon after its completion and dedication in 2007. Since then, the Memorial has become our 'special place'.
Our family is so proud to be taking part in Walk to the Wall in Chris' name and to help raise funds for the Arboretum. Even if you have not lost someone, it is somewhere you should visit - it is awe-inspiring, uplifting and grounded in reality.
