How can I say anything that will correctly convey the enormous void that I feel right now? Chris was my friend for 40 years. We met at CBS Television Network where we had so many fun times and crazy capers. We took wonderful excursions to all kinds of vacation spots. We ran around the city to all the restaurant openings, parties...all that NYC had to offer. Our friendship continued as we both got married, settled down in our respective suburbs and became homemakers, wives and mothers. We spoke almost daily. When talking on the phone became too taxing for Chris, we switched to texting...never missing a beat. Chris was a good girlfriend. She was loyal and caring and always willing to help in whatever way she could. She was strong and fierce. She was beautiful inside and out. She cared about her friends. She nurtured them...cherished them...was thankful for them. She was someone that I was always able to count on. I will miss her immeasurably but I know that she is having a blast in heaven now. Rock on, Chris- Love you Diane
