To Criss's Beautiful Family,
My memories of Criss are when she came to Washington to spend time with her beautiful family. It was traditional to see her each year with Lori, Rudy, Michael & Family. The family was always so excited to have her come when she could.
"Mom's here".. is what Lori would let me know. I loved seeing her! When Criss entered our offices (which would be often when here at Tetreault's) her beautiful smile, joy and strength always went ahead of her. What a lady! I loved her laugh & presence. It didn't take a whole lot to see her laugh because of her zest for life. Her love for her family was certainly unconditional. You could easily see how she proudly walked side by side with them in each of their lives.
What a legacy she has left here for the family to forever hold in your hearts. The fruits of her labor are highly visible in your family & I am sure many other lives she has touched.
Thank you for the opportunity to share about your Mom & Grandma as I knew her.
God bless each of you as he circles his love, strength & protection around you minute by minute as you go through this personal time of grieving.

I feel so very blessed that I got a chance to know Criss as a customer and most of all as a friend. I so enjoyed seeing her when she came up to Washington and we had so many nice times together going out to lunch. You will be missed my friend but I know that you are rejoicing in heaven right now. Thank-you for your friendship and being one of my best Silpada customers! I shall see you one day again.
My prayers are with the entire family during this great time of your loss. May God's peace be with all of you.

I remember the first time I met Criss she was so kind and had a personality that draws people to her. When I sat and spoke with her I felt like I had known her for years that is how comfortable she made me feel. My heart breaks for her family and I am sadden that I wont have the chance to talk with her again.

Your laughter, smiles, and personality filled a room whenever you entered it. You were truly a bright light who will be dearly missed, however I will carry you in my heart forever. You will continue to live on through your wonderful family. It was such a pleasure to have had you in my life.
We send all of our love to your family. You raised them well and they are a loving reflection of you.
Nancy, Prash & Ravi

I’m so sorry for your loss. May you find comfort in God’s promise of a resurrection where we will be reunited with our loved ones who have passed away and will never be separated by death again - John 5:28, 29; Revelation 21:3,4

I am a friend of Catherine’s daughter Lori. My brother in law’s family lived in Davie. I had met Catherine a few times at events with Lori. When she heard I was coming to Florida for Christmas, she invited me to meet up for coffee. Her other bright, charming daughter, Pam, came along. We had a great visit with laughter, and every time I saw her she made me laugh.
I met Michael after he moved to Washington State. She raised a fine family, and I was always pleased to be around her.
