Chris was such a beautiful lady inside and out. She fought so hard ans always kept a positive and shining attitude. I knew Chris from our school days and I was so happy to find her on FB several years back. I even ran into her a couple of times out in town. She always had a hug for me and I for her. She was just such a sweet soul who loved her family very much! I know that she will be watching over all of us. And I will keep you all in my thoughts and prayers.
