To the Heady and Allen families. I didn’t know your young son but I felt his energy, spunk and kindness through his TikTok videos. I was so sad when I read the news of Christian’s passing. May your memories of your sweet boy provide you comfort during this difficult time. I, along with many others, feel your pain deeply.

I just saw a video one of his friends made and did not know. He has touched so many people with his strength. Being a fellow Chiefs fan, I loved watching his love for them. You all did a wonderful job raising such a nice young man. Please know you are all in my thoughts and prayers.

I began keeping up with and praying for Christian after hearing about his battle during the news broadcast. Christian was an incredibly strong and brave young warrior. He will always be an example of what courage looks like. My prayers are with the Headys family and Christians Webb City football family. ✝️
