Not sure what to say?

Aunt Chris,

The candle that I have lit for you, Ive just sat here for 15min just looking at it and thinking bout you before I even wrote anything. But, you already know this, I wish I got time to spend with you before you passed and Im sorry for that. Last 6 months have been the scariest and toughest time I've ever lived, fighting through each day, just to try and have another... Those Demons, The struggle is real, and thats a job alone for me right now. I feel you close to me...

I met Chris when she moved in across the street from us when Amber was maybe in Kindergarten. I used to spend a lot of time over at their house playing and eventually would babysit all 4 kids. I remember going with the family to visit Chris mom and visiting them in Avoca after they moved from Rochester.

Chris was such a big part of my childhood! I can't remember much of time before she moved in next door, and her family quickly became part of our family. Intercom between our houses, baking cakes, craft at her table, playing in the yard: so many wonderful memories! I cant hear Michael Card without hearing her voice in my head belting out the words, at the top of her lungs, singing to her Lord right there in her dining room on Alexander Street! I picture her belting out those same words to her...

My Dear Christine ,
Well this is round two, writing, first one disappear. I can see Christine say oh it's ok you dont have to write it again lol

I was so blessed to have known your mom!! I remember at camp Harley your moms heart started beating a little fast for Ed , then asking Do you think he likes me? Not knowing he pretty much had said the same thing to me earlier .. We laughed about 13 stepping and b4 I knew they were an Item. Christine was so happy to have found...

Ur mom was the sweetest woman she always had a smile on her face Im so sorry she had to leave u all so soon but she is looking down on u all

My days are empty without you here. We had such fun the last month you were here, but know your with our loved ones and your special Ed and your in no pain. I love you and will forever miss your free spirit and chasing you around

I remember Chris as a child growing up when I visited her house with my grandmother , Mary. She was just a kid but we had some good times at her house. Please know she is in my prayers and accept my condolences for your loss. RIP Chris!
