I keep having to remind myself that its true and its real.. i miss him and i have the video from the funeral on my phone, had fun singing "here without you" yesterday with brittany parham, erin deese, katie bishop, mark looney, michaela burns, and that weird guy chris XD and the other two girls i didn't catch the names of XD but i was with my friends and i felt better, at northwest not many people knew him and didnt know how wonderful he was, how sweet and serious he took his friends how much he loved to make everyone smile and laugh, it was like his goal in life(: you couldnt have met him and not instantly love C.J Overcash.. Forever in my heart and Forever on my mind.
I know i didn't know you very well, but you always knew how to brighten someones day. I remember the first day of theatre, you had this happy inoccent look on your face like nothing could of been better. You got up in front of the class and preformed like a champ. You were always a very likable and caring person. Always knew how to make people laugh and smile. You were a very smart young man chris! Even though i didn't know you that well, i'll still charish the good moments we had and all the the interesting conversations we had.
Our Condolences and Prayers to Chris's family and friends. I have a 13yr old son in Boy Scout Troop 400 in Durham, N.C. We are sorry for your loss of such a amazing person. Reading everything Chris had accomplished at such a young age you know he was headed for greatness. May it help you to know we will be keeping you all in our Prayers.

Chris was at school today in spirit and our memoires. He's still a great guy even though he's gone from here. I've cried these past few days, but now I'm doing my best to be happy for him and spread the love and friendship like he always has. We love you, Chris. I promise to watch more MLP for you. :) I know we fell out of touch, but you were still an awesome friend. See you again one day....I hope you can read everything we are writing.
Chris was a good classmate, brother, and friend. He loved everyone of his friends like they were his own brother or sister. I wish he was still here with us today. But I know we will all love and miss him everyday that comes by. I know him and I meet so out of the blue but as soon as we did we became best friends. He hated it when anyone was sad so he always tried and put a smile on your face. I also know that he had his heart set on going into the army. He was the friend that no one can replace, he will always be in our hearts. I'm sorry for your lost.....
I LOVE AND MISS YOU CHRIS
Ill miss you chris. Your smile would always get me through a rough day. Your love will always be with me.
R.I.P and always love you Chris
So very sad to hear this tragic news. I hope you all can keep your good memories of Chris and the times you shared together. God Bless him and give him Rest and Peace,and Grant his friends and family Peace; 'till that Wondrous Day when we will be rewarded appropriately for this life, in the next. May you meet again.

You and I will meet again
When we're least expecting it
One day in some far off place
I will recognize your face
I won't say goodbye my friend
For you and I will meet again
Even though we didn't know each other very long, I consider you one of my good friends. We all miss you so much bro, and I'm sure we'd all give anything for you to come back to us. Your smile could make anyone happy, and your happiness was contagious. I hope you're having fun riding PinkiePie and Applejack. We miss you bro!
I met him since I was either a freshman or a sophomore here at A. L. Brown. He treated me like his best friend. I never could have asked for anything more. He was more like a brother to me. When he left, I couldn't bear it, I wanted to see him one last time so badly. I keep wanting to see him at school but then I have to remember he's gone...
He may be gone physically, but mentally he's there in our hearts and minds, and he will certainly never be forgotten.
Love you bro. We'll miss you so much. <3
Chris you were my bor and ill miss you so much c/o 2014.
Chris was an amazing friend, a brother even. I remember meeting him the summer before sixth grade. He was such a goof ball back then. He just had so much energy and was just like a ball of fire that couldn't be extinguished. Even in high school he was just so energetic and spunky. He just set off this aura of happiness wherever he went. Wherever he was he always had a smile on his face and music in his ears. He wasn't ashamed of himself and what he liked and I admired that about him. Whenever he was around you, you couldn't help but just smile in his presence. He was an amazing person, more than I could ever hope to achieve. It hurts to know he's gone. At first I thought it was a joke but then I realized it's true. Even now I keep on looking for him in the halls or outside where everyone waits for their bus but I never see him. I then have to remember he's gone. The last time I saw him I was getting a ride back to the school Friday so I could ride my ripstik with a friend. I waved to him, he didn't recognize me at first but even though he didn't he waved back. Then when he saw me his smile just got bigger and it just brought a grin to my face. He just had that amazing effect on people. Before that I made him give me a gigantic hug. If I had known he'd be dead the next day I would have held him tighter and never let go. But I've learned to cherish the things I have because of it all. He may not be here with us in person but his spirit and memories will always be with us.
You'll be missed brother. We miss you <3
I didnt know you the best as many of my freinds but just know that i miss you. You was one of my best guys friends. No matter what mood i was in seein g you walk to school always brouhgt me to smile. Wedensdays wont be the same without your comments about the unifrom. I know there are many people who miss you but we all wiss you would some how come back alive even for one day.
i will miss you at youth because you were the one that made it fun and i will miss them allways teling you to be quie and i remember all the memories you will never be forgotten.
Miss u hun. We always had alot of fun in 3rd block its not gonna be the same now and i am peralzyed by the fact that u r gone. And i love you forever and always chris lov eyou like you was my own brother.
Perhaps they are not the stars, but rather openings in Heaven where the love of our lost ones pours through and shines down upon us to let us know they are happy. ~Author Unknown
When I look up at the stars Ill think of Chris, and the way he brightened up our school with his vivaciousness and energy! I am so thankful I had the pleasure of knowing him and working with him for the time that I did. One of my favorite memories of Chris is him blaring music in the hallway at school one morning :) he brought so much life and energy everywhere he went. Our school will truly never be the same.
I didn't know you extremely well, Chris, but I saw you every morning, hanging out with our mutual friends. I talked to you a few times, mostly about music, funnily enough. I didn't know you the best, but I still counted you among my friends. It's staring to sink in that you're gone, and I'm not sure exactly what to feel... Your smile was infectious, and will be missed.
Everyday you run up and give me a hug. You where one of the first people that came up to me and said "Hi my name is Chris." You are an amazing person and I love and miss you. You are honestly one of mt bestest friends. You cared about everybody, even if you didn't know them. You where a true friend. It funny how one day you, Teffiny and i where goofing of in 2nd block and the next day your gone. It sucks that I wont get any more "Chris" hugs. I didn't know that Jonny was your dad tell today. You honestly remind me so much of him. You and him are both great guys. You where the one that anybody could talk to and you gave amazing advice. Once a Wonder always a Wonder<3
Gone but NEVER Forgotten<3!!
You were the greatest friend anyone could ever ask for. No matter what was going on in your life, you always tried your best to make sure everyone around you was happy, whether you knew them or not.
You were my best friend, my brother, you were family.
Words can't describe my love for you. And I will miss you always. I wish I could have seen you one last time, seen your smile, and heard your voice. Felt your hugs, which people who knew him will know, they were the best.
Love you buddy, rainbow dash on.
Chris always had a smile on his face! No matter what he had a smile! I will never forget his hugs they were the best you could get from anyone in this world! He always wanted to make people happy & make them smile! Chris was an amazing person! Even though he may gone he still remains in our hearts & I still love him & always will! I will miss you very very much Chris! I love you!<3
I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your son. I know you don't know me, but we have a lot in common. My name is Ashley Slusher Devers and my brother was Jordan Slusher. He fell at Stone Mountain on June 9th. My family and I know exactly what you are going through!
I know that many people will try to say incouraging words, but they don't know what to say because they have not been their. But, even on this side of things I still don't know what to say. Just know that you are in our prayers and close to our hearts!
I Love You CJ you are one of a kind and you will be missed!

I only knew Chris for about 3 weeks and he treated me like his best friend..... I really wish he was still here with us all. One thing that made me smile was seeing his smile, but now I can no longer see it. I jush I can see him one more time.
