Chris's gentle spirit will always be remembered. She treasured her Lord, Family and Friends. Always had that precious smile. She had won the first battle and now has received her reward by being with The Lord.

Chris was absolutely THE sweetest, kindhearted person I've had the honor to know! She was soft spoken and I'm fairly certain it was the rare occasion that she would speak harshly of anybody! "Semper Fi" sweet lady . . . See you on that "Great Day" when we shall rejoice with our Lord!!!
In fond remembrance,

Chris was absolutely THE sweetest, kindhearted person I've had the honor to know! She spoke in a soft quiet manner . . . and I'm fairly certain it was rare to hear her speak harshly of anybody! "Semper Fi," Chris . . . See you at that Great Celebration!

My last contact with Chris a few months back, she shared a photo of her granddaughter that was wearing a dress that I had made for Evette all those years ago. She certainly could make me smile! She will be missed by everyone that experienced her in their life. I will see you in heaven my sister.
All of God's love, Shelley

Chris will be deeply missed,not only was she my son's grandmother,she was like a family member. She was a wonderful person to be around and always had a smile on her face. Her grandson and I are truly blessed to have her attend his graduation from high school. She may be gone in body but her spirit and memories will always be in our hearts.

Christina has been my friend for 40 years. We served in the Marine Corps together for 3 years. She is now in Jesus's loving arms. She was a blessing to all who knew her.
