    Mary we are both greaved over your lost. Chris and us were always more than church members toward each other. We missed him dearly during his absence from the choir and had looked forward for his return. Our prayers are with you God has a good man with him now. Be Blessed.

    Mary We are very saddened over Chris' passing, but we are happy to know he is in heaven and one day we'll all be together again. You and your family have been in our prayers. We added you to our prayer list at our church. Wish we lived closer so we could give you a hug and spend some time together. Take care and may the Lord continue to fill you with His peace and surround you with His loving arms.
