    I wanted to make a quick post about HEP and give an update .
    May-June has been brutal for me with the moving of shops and the unexpected passing of my brother.
    I am getting settled back in now and should be back to business as usual after the upcoming 4th of July holiday.
    Cannot think of a rougher patch ever in my 40 years of life thus far but I am truly looking forward to getting back to business as usual and moving forward.
    Thanks to all .

    Extremely sorry also for your loss, I dont know how many siblings you have, but if I remember correctly you got started in this business working with your brother and it sounds that you must of been really close. 40's is way to young....

    Yes we were extremely close.My brother was the first person I brought in when I made HEP an official business almost 10 years ago.He was a huge part of it up until the end of 2007 at that time his demons had just gotten the best of him and we could not continue on working together.We eventually got past that on a personal level and I did what I could over the years to help.
    He was 43 had a daughter,son and a grandson that was just a few months old that he never got to see.
    This is one of the few more recent pictures I have of us together taken back in 2007 when we did the EDS/OCC build.I could not have pulled off something that large in that short of time without him .We drove all the way up there , set the game up and quickly learned that there is little reality in reality TV.Looking back I now realize that the 14 hour trip up and back was the best part .

    #38 6 years ago

    Sorry for your loss Chris.

    I lost my brother 13 years ago when I was 20 years old. He is still in my thoughts ever day, and is the inspiration I use to guide me through my life.

    #39 6 years ago

    I am so sorry to read this news, family means so much. You were so blessed to have a brother you could work with and share another bond many of us will never know. Remember the good memories and let any bad ones fade away. My preacher told me this is a way we can always honor our family and friends who have passed.

    #40 6 years ago

    Sorry to hear of your loss, sure makes me wish I lived closer to my brother.

    #41 6 years ago

    I know we don't know each other, but I am a big supporter of your work. I send you my humblest condolences. I can't imagine what you must be going through. Stay strong.
