    I was so sorry to hear of the passing of your beautiful mother, sister, wife and friend. We were very good friends during our high school years. We always had fun and sometimes got into a little trouble. I remember Chris as a beautiful soul who always had a smile on her face.

    There was so many things that I admired about Chris. From her classic style to her fun loving nature. I have a picture of her dancing on my coffee table at a family gathering which was so Chris.
    Life brought many challenges to her whether it was being a young Mom, moving to a foreign country and not knowing anyone, dealing with a devastating accident with Eric, or bringing Brooke into the world who was 2 months early…. She faced it all with a strength and honesty that I will always admire.
    Her family was so important to her and she made so many sacrifices for them. It was important to her to be home to greet her family after school or work. I don’t think I ever visited their home where there wasn’t some fresh baked good out on the counter. I have no idea how she was able to maintain her shape except for I knew she worked hard at it with running etc….
    When she got back into the workforce, I was fortunate enough to be working at the same company. She was very well respected and such a hard worker. If she was going to do something she’s gonna do it right.
    Losing Chris will leave a hole in many peoples lives. Brooke, words cannot express the sadness I feel for you . Your Mom will be missed……
