This is heart wrenching just think be mindful of what you say and how you perceive things. Who would have thought such a vibrant man would check out like this. My heart goes out to his family and entertainment family. May you rest in peace Chris no one can judge you but God!

Ah shit, I just realized something: Maybe jocuri and miniclip don't comment during the weekend. If that is the case, then it looks like I'm hung out to dry. C'mon, you two, c'mon....
