Aunt Chris Your birthday and holiday cards were always the first to arrive. You always called whenever we sent a note or a present and, after complaining that it was too much, wanted to know everything about how Patti and I were doing. You pretended to be tough and I loved making you laugh. As they say, family lasts forever and you will certainly live on in our hearts and in our memories. Rest in eternal peace. You deserve it.

You always would say it's too much whenever we would get you a gift or plan an elaborate dinner or offer to pick you up and take you home when driving at night was too much. But the truth is that it was never too much and now does not seem like enough time, conversations, holidays, memories, left overs (lol!). I was blessed to have you as my godmother. I loved that special bond we shared - and having birthdays one day apart! We were blessed as a family to have your love, presence, attention, chocolate cake, the first call whenever medical advice was needed, and of course, the constant help whenever anything needed to be cleaned up!! I loved it most when I would look over and finally see you sitting down after everything was done and enjoying the food, conversation, craziness and noise that was always around. You've worked so hard, you have been so resilient and strong, and you have cared so much for others that now you can finally relax and enjoy! I know you will keep watch over us! Love, Robin

I had the pleasure of working with Chris at UConn Health. She was attentive to the needs of her patients and her co-workers. She was a special lady and I thought of her often. My condolences to her family.
