    Aunt Ruth, cousins and Chris’s family,
    We were so sorry to hear of Chris’s passing. We enjoyed talking to him when we would see each other. The thing I remember most about Chris is how he could always find LOTS of morel mushrooms in the spring, an art I am still trying to master! Our thoughts and prayers will be with all of you. May all of your fond memories of Chris bring you peace and comfort.
