My heart is saddened to hear that Chris passed away. She was a beautiful soul. I met her when I visited the proposal dept. at Pearson. I shared her cubicle for a week. You know when you meet someone & you just click. That's how it was with Chris. I just loved her from the get go. She will be sorely missed. My condolences to her family, especially her much loved nephew Jack. She was just crazy about him.

Chris's sisters and Jack would like to thank everyone for their thoughts,
prayers, phone calls, cards and memories as we deal with her passing at
this difficult time.
Chris was proud of her Irish heritage:
May the Road Rise to meet you.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
the rain fall soft upon your fields and,
until we meet again, may God hold you
in the palm of his hand.
An Irish Blessing

Chris was observant and kind. She lit up when spoke of Jack and Milo. My condolences to family and friends. May her spirit be surrounded by peace, love, and light and the same be shed over her loved ones.

I am deeply saddened to hear of Chris's passing. I worked with her during her 5 years at Kirkwood. She was one of the kindest people I knew. She loved Jack deeply and shared many stories of him. I will miss her greatly. I'm so glad I had the chance to know her and call her friend.

I was saddened to learn of Chris' passing. I knew her during her time in Proposal Services at Pearson and later when she transitioned to Pearson VUE. I know Jack meant the world to her and that she would do anything for him. My deepest sympathy to Chris' family.

I am so sad at this news. Chris and I took several walks together when I worked in proposals. She loved her nephew Jack so much and my heart hurts for his terrible loss. I hope she is at peace, in a better place. I send you hugs, Chris, wherever you are.

My heart is very heavy after learning of Chris's passing. I will remember her for her warmth, wit, writing talent, adoration for her nephew, interest in history, and appreciation for all things British (especially Judy Dench movies).
