My dear Chris, what wonderful memories I have of you for the past 40 plus years. I can remember the first time I met you, you came into the beauty salon to get your haircut and we've been friends ever since. You were my dearest and most considerate friend. We did so many fun things together, getting lost in the Geist area not once, but twice. We vowed we wouldn't tell Steven since he drove that huge MayFlower semi all over the United States. He would always laugh at us. He would call me "Sis" and you would tell me I was the daughter you never had. I will always cherish that. The fun times we had attending the Bill Gaither's show one evening downtown or the luncheons we had at the Gaither's store in Alexandrea, IN or the Wicker Factory when we got lost in the country. Every year we would look forward to the horse show at Wild Air Farms. Thank you Chris for all the fun times, I will truly miss you.
