  2. To Chris’s family,
    I am so sorry that you lost Chris. She lived to take care of you all and even though there were days that someone was “driving her crazy” she loved you all so much and often bragged about this one or that one of her family. I worked with Chris on 8 West for many years. I was the nursing clinical instructor from Pitt. Chris was always helping to teach my students her little tricks of the trade or how to get something done for her patients. She was tough on the outside, but we all know that she had a heart of gold!! She will be sorely missed by her co-workers, patients and most of all by her family. Chris never gave up no matter what was going on at home, kitchen fires, car trouble etc. She always believed that she could make things better. She was such a strong women. Please try to remember that about her. You also need to remember how she loved to cook for her family. She will be watching from heaven. You all will be in my prayers and have my deepest sympathy.
