I was so very sad to hear about Chrisís passing. We used to have lunch everyday at Plunkett and got so close. I looked forward every year to going to Jackieís house for her tag sale because I knew I could get to talk to Chris. I can still hear her soft voice so clear in my mind. My deepest sympathies to Jackie & Cathy, my sweet Emilie, and the rest of your family.
