I am so sad to learn about Chris. She was a wonderful friend and neighbor when we first moved here. She showed us great kindness and shared her love with our kids. Our love and sympathy to you all.

Michael and Family...I love Chris....so sorry to hear of her passing....she was a great mentor to me at PI. There is a 'bucket' of words to describe her....kind, generous, compassionate, empathetic, love of all people....animals....the earth....so many descriptions!
Rest well Chris.....
