We remember fondly our Monday night pizza gatherings with Chris and Joe. What a wonderful couple and good company with our other JBCC friends. They both were always very gracious and welcoming when our family members from up north joined us especially the connection with architecture and teaching our family’s shared. But now Chris and Joe are together again forever. We will always keep you in our prayers and happy memories.

I remember when I was little, Aunt Chris and Uncle “Sonny” gave my parents a respite and watched me for a few days at their beautiful home in Harrison, NY. One day, Aunt Chris made me lunch consisting of pan-fried ham, buttered noodles and peas. I can still vividly remember the chair I sat in at the kitchen table. Unlike me at the time, miraculously, I gobbled it up! From that day forward, Mom was no longer concerned about me not eating and being too skinny! Aunt Chris, a gracious woman of many talents!
