I remember walking with Chris to Grotto and stopping at Heinrichs bakery to get a donut for a snack after mass.
Going to the Lucia’s pizzaria after the Varsity football game
and hanging out with her friends..... they were so cool.
We would devour her delicious chocolate cake when she babysat us that evening. Thank you for taking great care of us.
Thanks for so many wonderful memories.💕
Love Dave

To my Dear Sweet sister Chrissy, words can not express how much you meant to me throughout my life! Much like Dad you had that gentle kind soul, which is rare these days and might I say fortunate for your younger siblings. Somehow you would always calm us down without much to do. I feel that Jesus was preparing you for the battles to come and battle you did. So Thank you and I'll miss you more than I can ever express. Until we meet again all my love Bev😚😚😚
