For the last number of years both Chris and Bob came into my life. I was given the great opportunity of spending numerous hours and days listening to both their life stories. I so enjoyed sitting and visiting with this most humble couple. After loosing Bob, it was clear Chris’s lost her soul mate. Although she struggled with her loss she still found it in herself to want to dote on someone and find a place in her heart to laugh, cry and feel wild and crazy with the top down in the bug. She was a wonderful and carrying woman and I will certainly miss the time having that 5pm happy hour, giggles and watching the dogs at play! My deepest condolences to Rob, Linda, Hank (the boxer) and family! Kathy
