Dear family of Chrissy:
I knew your Chrissy from kindergarten at Harwood and we remained friends and classmates and graduated
together in 81 from Central. I'm very sorry I was not able to pay my respects in person. Chrissy was a wonderful happy, kind, and precious friend to have. Some of the best times we had were on the brownie troop outings. I will always remember Chrissey's smile and her silly giggle. My prayers are with the family members of Chrissey. May God give you strenghth. Again, may God bless you all. Cindy

Dear Judy, Gary, Lori, Angie, and the entire Bates-Moyer Family,
Sheri and I would like to express our deepest sympathies at the passing of
Chrissy. It's tough losing a person this young, and it has to be even tougher to lose a daughter, and a sibling. Judy, Gary, and family know that you are in our thoughts and prayers. Chrissy and I were never real close, but we were classmates in the C.H.S. Class of 1981. I know she will be missed by all who knew her and called her friend, and blessings to her children, and grandchildren. Peace be with you , Steve and Sheri Cox

in psalms 30:5 we are promised by God that "weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning".
Anna, I pray that the Lord gives you and your family peace and comfort during this time of loss. If there is anything I can do for any of you...please let me know.
