I have known Chris for about 10 years, and had the fortune to travel around the world with him, faking  my way as some kind of tour manager for the band he played in with the Flegel brothers and M. Wallace.  I have been blessed to have spent so much time with him.  Chris and I were close, and I know we would have been friends forever.  In a way now, we are friends forever.

Chris attracted the best people, and this last week in Calgary has been amazing.  Thank you Nikki, and your whole family.  Chris loved his family in a way that is uncommon, and you guys meant so much to him.

Lots of love,
RS

A Memory of Chris

Hi Nikki,

On behalf of everyone from Welcome to the West, we are so deeply sorry for your family’s loss – Chris was an integral part of Calgary music and his contribution to Women made them quite possibly our city’s finest export. I also wanted the chance to thank you for this memorial website – every post and every memory shared is a beacon of strength for the many, many people your brother inspired throughout his life.
After reading every post over the past week, I thought I should send you a raw video our crew shot in Edmonton a couple of years back. We had previously never posted this because the vocals weren’t up to snuff. Nevertheless, the more memories the better in times like these – even if you heard it from under water, Chris’s guitar would still sound better than most.
Calgary will never forget Chris Reimer.
We send you our love,
Brendan Kane

Remembering Chris

Hi Nikki,

First, my deepest sympathies for the loss of your brother. You’ve set up a great site to remember him and it’s really nice, as a person who unfortunately never met Chris personally, to read stories and memories.

I’ve posted an article on my site about Chris and my one and only real memory of his gift.

Dear Nikki,

First of all i want to send my love, support and condolences.

It’s a tragic loss we all can’t and don’t want to understand.

I had the pleasure to work with him and meet him many times with Women and The Dodos.

I saw your blogpost and wanted to send you these 2 videos i made during the last The Dodos tour in May 2011.

One video is from Munich playing with the Dodos, the other one is made in Amsterdam when the Dodos and the Luyas performed as ‘The Doyas’

I met Chris at a hiphop show at the Night Gallery.  The first time we hung out I went to see him playing bass with his Dad on drums for “Batboy the Musical” at Vertigo Theatre.  It was the same day as the last Veritas show.  We became good friends shortly after and we started writing music together and his talent was mind blowing.  He never ceased to continually amaze over the years with every little thing he did.  I was always trying to be on par with him in so many ways.  He always made sure to make me feel loved and appreciated.  We would always yell at each other for not releasing our solo music.  Our favorite thing to do was get drunk and be ipod djs for each other for hours and hours.  I am so grateful to have been friends and am so happy and inspired for all that Chris accomplished in his life.  You were truly one of a kind.  I love you.

Stay strong
-Morgan
