Cris was technically my stepmother but I never used that term for her as she was one of my best friends.She was my advocate.A role she fulfilled for many people. In fact she was often the advocate for people who had no one else in their corner.In the kitchen her skill set was the equal of any Chef. On the regular Friday Night outings of the “ Old Timers” the two of us would often team up to initiate some humor by aggravating one of the others about their strange habits.She loved to laugh. She was a source of comfort in time of trouble.A follower of Jesus Christ she was “passed from death unto life”.
