Christopher Sell, 13, was a young man who loved to sing and dance in praise to God. Christopher left this earth on Tuesday, February 24th, 2015 for a place infinitely better than Disney World -- he ran to the loving arms of the Savior, Jesus Christ. Now he has a new body that will never tire or limit his desire to run, play football, and do all the things that we take for granted. Christopher dealt with many medical and emotional struggles, yet his joyful demeanor never once faltered. He was never one to shy away from the spotlight, and he took every opportunity to put on a show for a willing audience. Christopher was in 7th grade at Conestoga Valley Middle School and was surrounded by teachers and staff from CVMS and from Fritz Elementary who truly cared and desired the best for him. Christopher will be greatly missed by many!
