Chris' father:

"We misread him," his father admits. What Walt, Billie, and Carine didn't know when they flew down to Atlanta to attend Chris's commencement—what nobody knew—was that he would shortly donate all the money in his college fund to OXFAM America, a charity dedicated to fighting hunger."

His sister Carine:

"Even when we were little," says Carine, who was born three years after Chris, "he was very to himself. He wasn't antisocial— he always had friends, and everybody liked him—but he could go off and entertain himself for hours. He didn't seem to need toys or friends. He could be alone without being lonely."
