Chris was such a delight! I worked with both him and Martha on several vacation trips (AAA) as their travel agent. He always had a twinkle in his eye and a smile on his face. You could tell he was so devoted to Martha. He also loved that golf game!! I miss both Martha and him. They were my one of my favorite customers who became friends. Martha, know that I am thinking and praying for you. I know you will miss Chris! Love, Suzanne Petrucelli (travel agent at AAA).
