Sarah, You have been my "sister" for 46 years. You and Chris were a very important part of my life, and the lives of my kids. Our kids were cousins for life. I know they each have their own memories of their Uncle Chris. Tho Chris and I had our ups and downs, I loved him. He was half of my Chris and Sarah. Even tho it has been years since seeing one another, I will miss his presence in my life. He definitely made life interesting! You, Tina, Marcie, Janet, Sarah and Susan are now and will forever be in my heart. I love you all. May Chris Rest in Peace.
