During this difficult time its hard to find the right words to express my deepest sympathies, I hope knowing you're not alone in this loss brings comfort. Aunt Chris will forever be remembered dearly for all the kindness and love she had to give. I'm honored to have had her as the best Aunt ever. She will be dearly missed.

We are so sad to hear of Chrissy's passing. She was always such a kind and gentle person with a great inner strength. I remember her beautiful singing at her parents funerals and marveled at the strength that took. She will be missed. We pray for peace for Chrissy and her family.
