Chris was such a fine lady. I very much enjoyed stopping into the Flower Cart to chat and share a laugh or 2. Her son, Jamie, was one of my students, and I could catch up on him at the same time. My thoughts and prayers are with her sons and their families. Sincerely, Mrs. (Carol) Hall

My deepest sympathy to Christine's family. Christine was my classmate and my dear friend. She had such a great sense of humor. She could always make me laugh.
We had lost contact in recent years but she was not forgotten.

Such a wonderful lady. Chris came into my life when Jeremy came into Katy's life and I feel privileged to have known her. So many family gatherings and laughs over the years. Rest in Peace, Chris. Memories of you will live on through your children, grandchildren and friends.
