In her own statement, Emmanuelle said in part: "[Chris] was there for EVERYONE all the time… every conversation started with a great big 'hello my love'. He was one of one.

"The only thing that brings any peace is to know he is no longer suffering. He was transparent about what he was living thru, and I hope we can continue the dialogue about mental health because that’s what he would have wanted."
