Chris & I met in 3rd grade & became instant friends! I will cherish the countless memories of the fun times, years shed & secrets shared. My heart hurts for the void loosing her has created. Although we had lost touch in recent years I never stopped thinking about my friend (Pooh Bear- Forever your friend Piglet). Prayers hugs and love to the family & other friends

My dearest Chris, as I sit in your Savannah home thinking about you, I realize how much I love you and miss you, baby. Each time I had to leave you over the past couple of years to go back to work in Iowa became harder and harder. I'll see you on the other side of the rainbow bridge one day, honey.

Wow, memories are flooding back. I use to babysit Chris (Tildy) and her brothers when we were young. She was such a sweet, pretty little girl. Jeannie was my cousin. It sounds like she had a wonderful family. Condolences, a hard loss for sure.

May Chris rest in peace. She was a beautiful person and a true friend when we were young girls. I am lucky to have had her in my life. God bless her.
