Christian Lay Bailey, 44, of Williamsburg, VA, passed away on Monday, September 25, 2017.
Our hearts are heavy from the loss of our beloved Christian, who left us much too soon. He was a truly loving and giving human being, and he spent his life helping others, unconditionally, in ways and to an extent that most of us will never achieve in a lifetime. Christian left behind a sister who loved her little brother immensely. But he actually had a much, much larger family who called him their brother. This is truly a testimony to how big his heart was, and how much space he had in there to be a brother and the closest of friends to so many of you. How it was possible may remain a mystery forever, but let’s live by Christian’s measure and let’s let more of the people around us into our hearts, because it will make this a better world, just like Christian made this a better world. It is our duty to make up for the loss of his loving presence by letting more love into our lives; more of our fellow human beings into our hearts. Thank you, Christian, for showing us this beautiful, bright path. May you rest in peace, forever.
