    Dear family, you have my heartfelt condolences. May God the Father of tender mercies (Psalm 83:18) strengthen you all during this difficult time and may your cherished memories comfort you as you await His loving provision of a resurrection when you may be reunited with your dear loved one again (John 5:28,29).

    Dear Family- I share your loss as I remember the many memories of Chris. She was an inspiration, always positive and strong. Each one of you are a testimony of the beautiful part of her she left behind as she rises up to a new world free from the struggles of cancer. Always remember that although we may not see her physically on earth, she will live forever in the hearts of all of you and also in the hearts of those of us that had the privilege of knowing her. God Bless each of you.
