After 3 tough years battling brain cancer my brother Kit, the warrior, died on Saturday 3/27/2010 here in Chicago.
CHRISTOPHER R. HARLEYChristopher R. (Kit) Harley of Arlington Heights, beloved husband of Rachel, nee Balazs; devoted father of Bradyn Harley and Baby Girl Harley; loving son of Robert and Paula Harley; son-in-law of Paul and Terri Ast; dear brother of Jennifer (John) Kevil and Robert Harley; dear grandson of Kay and Frank Laskos and Alice Harley.
I just wanted to issue a thank you to everyone that has reached out, donated to HHH, or helped raise awareness through this process. The love has been tremendous and I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
It's an extraordinary thing to realize how much one person has touched your life. It's even more amazing to see how much they've touched other people's lives. The affects of Kit's compassion, caring, joy, and love are far reaching and will be felt forever.
My heart is with Kit's family (wife Rachel, son Bradyn, soon to be baby girl) as they endure a difficult test of strength. One thing is for sure they had the best teacher in the world when it comes to being strong.
I'm blessed to have had the privilege to have Kit as a brother, best friend, and hero for the last 27 years. He will be missed, but never forgotten.
We love you Kit.
