  • Chris was one of those people that you tried to help, and she ended up helping you. I can’t tell you how much she inspired me with her love and commitment to her family. She judged no one. She always had room for everyone in her home and in her heart. Nothing was too difficult to tackle and she always found a way to get the job done. She was smart, kind, and had a great laugh. I will truly miss her and will always remember her spirit.
