Though I never knew Christine, the beautiful words spoken about her make me wish that I had. But I do know that the scripture at Isaiah25:8 says God will swallow up death forever and this is in the near future. Then I mad have the prospect of seeing her in a peaceful new world without sickness.

"I don't want to be your inspiration, I want to be your friend" these words from Chris come back to me as I write this.
But she truly was both- a wonderful friend and she continues to be an inspiration. Her sweet spirit and strong faith have touched many. She was truly loved!

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.Chris was a amazing Lady and you as a Loving and carring Husband. It is how amazing that a dog could bring so many wonderful people into our lives. Casey brought our paths together and fostered a friendship that is very special. When you visited here in Minnesota the times were so special and Chris was such a insperation to be around and her drive positive attitude and walking from the Log House to the Kennel was so neat and the both of you getting to enjoy Minnesota's mother nature. I look forward to Casey and you making a visit to Minnesota this summer.

I have tears as I write this. I am sorry to see that your wife, Chris, and wonderful mother has died............My memory of her is of a smiling, happy, friendly, caring and loving person! I never met her that she wasn't one or all of those things. My faith tells me that she is with her Creator and others that have gone before her and that some day we will see her again.
Heaven is welcoming her home now and we will miss knowing she is in this world. We are all better for knowing her while she was with us. God give you peace just knowing how much she loved each of you and how much you loved her and brought her so much happiness.
Sincerely, Love, Mary Jo and Hank Maher

Chris taught me how to relate to cancer over these many years. I learned so much from her by just being exposed to the flaming creative Spirit in her ailing body, living fully. She was an angel held bound to earth by our mortal flesh. Now she is fully what she always was...a free spirit with us all. My condolence to Gary and their family. My prayers are that you come to rest as Chris lives in her new body.
