This will be the third christmas without you,Chris. It doesn't get any easier. I'm sure you were there to hug the 20 little angels that were torn so violently from this earth. Take care of them, my angel !

Miss you, Chrissie. Hurts not to have you to talk to, reflect with, complain about getting old and about the younger generation—all the things we ought to be doing as fabulous old crones with lots of necklaces and highballs. xox

Chris, I can't believe you've been gone almost a year. We miss you more than ever. Tell Tommy we still miss him, too.
Suzie. you and chris were as close as sisters could be. Your entry brought tears to my eyes.

To me you were an angel in disguise
full of intuition, intelligent and wise.
Always giving and helping
through good times and bad.
You are the best friend I ever had.
If I had one wish it would surely be
to have given you as much as you've given to me.
Through joy and sorrow,
right by me you stood and gave me your hand whenever you could
Thank you so much my sister, my friend.
My love for you will never end.

You and Chuck are in my thoughts every day. Always will be. Few have brought such joy and laughter as you have. I will never let a day go by without thinking of you. Aunt Sara

Can't believe a full season of golf has passed without you. We missed you at the Hopyard, missed you at SNEWGA events. How things have changed..your friends Linda and Pete have moved away, so we've lost them too. You never know the effect you will have on others. Our thoughts are about you and with Chuck during this difficult Holiday season.
