    To the Family of Chris Poole, please know you have my deepest sympathies and are in my thoughts and prayers. Hearing about Chris passing was such a shock. I had the privilege of not only working with Chris at the Safety & Health Council but also having him as one of my Instructors. Chris will be truly missed!
