    To my dear sister, Chris. You lost your battle with cancer but you fought like a Warrior that you are. We were roommates growing up and had many fun memories. I will miss you so very much. I’ll miss our chats and your sweet "Hello" when you answeres the phone. Our corvette trips and meetings for breakfast. Rest in Peace my sweet sister. My heart breaks. ❤️ Patti.

    My best friend, you are missed. We had quite a lot of fun. You turned me into the neighborhood cat lady. First time I met you, I thought you were strange. You told me about operating on your bird. The more we talked the closer we got. I have many stories, even told you I’d write a book. Don’t worry my friend, it’s history. I miss you. Love and piece to your family. Hope you’re seeing all your loved family, friends and pets❤

    Rest my friend, your battle is over and you can now be pain free. We had some great times together in our teens that’s for sure. Between high school antics and fun times at Wegmans we could have written a book. Fly free friend. To the family, my sincerest condolences. I know how much she will be missed.

    My brave and dearest sister Chris. I have so many fond memories but most of all our walks through your gardens and our many weekend drives in the countryside. You were truly devoted to your family and pets, both domestic and wild. I will miss you always and think of you often.

    John and I were saddened to hear about the passing of Chris. Cancer is a terrible thing but she’s at peace now. When you and Chris were around for family get togethers we always laughed and enjoyed your company. May Chris rest in peace and Dave you are in our thoughts and prayers.

    I send my deepest sympathy and love to all of Christine’s family. Growing up next door to the Wright family was a lot of fun! Christine was a beautiful teenager and already a lover of animals and always made me feel special even though I was "younger" ! She had a beautiful welcoming personality… I send my love to all in her family…
