My deepest sympathy to Chris and the whole family. I used to love spending time with you and your family. Your mom was like a second mom to me when we were growing up. She had such a sense of humor and could always make me laugh. Her faith was always front and center. Having lost my mom this past December and my dad the year before in November, know that my thoughts and prayers are with you in the days and weeks ahead. I think of you often!
