Chris was a classmate at P.S.J. and a friend. We would walk home from school together. I lived farther from the school than she did, but we did have time to walk and talk together. After high school we kept in touch and saw one another for lunch or breakfast every couple of years. The last time I saw Chris was in September, 2017.

To her family: I am sorry for your loss.
