If it wasnt for Allison I would have never met Nana Chris. She was very loving and always very happy. I remember when we went to her house in Bakersfield to help her move, she had 2 big boxes in her living room. Both Zane and Kayden had them set up with blankets and pillows and wanted to sleep in them. its memories like that, that will always keep Nana Chris in our minds and hearts. To the Family, I am sorry for your loss.

We will cherish the memories of our Aunt Chris forever. I'll never forget her smile and the way she touched my life. I have been called Nana by my grandkids for almost 15 yrs because of her. I wish I could be there, just know you are all in my thoughts and prayers.
