Chris, to know you was to love you! We just met you at Christmas, when we came up to visit with you and Bruce and Carrie and our son and stepson, John Howes. Your kindness and generosity made an immediate and lasting impression on us. You talked with love of your husband and children and grandchildren, and your adoration of your family shone in every word. You made us feel immediately welcome and accepted into your family. It was an honor to spend those two days with you. We are glad we had that time to meet and get to know you. Our love goes with you, and a very sweet and precious remembrance remains here with us. Love, John's mother and stepfather, Nancy and Karl Miller

Chris was always a loving, caring person. We enjoyed our visits with her, both in New York, as well as in Hampton, VA. She will be missed very, very much. My thoughts and prayers remain with Bruce, Carrie, Todd, and the rest of the family.

While it has been many, many years since Chris and I were last together, I've enjoyed keeping in touch with her via Christmas cards and Face Book. My heart hurts for Bruce, Todd, Carrie, and the rest of her family/friends who will remain in my thoughts and prayers. When I happen to see a ladybug, I will think of Chris and smile.
