Chris was one of my best friends since we met at Ferris State University. She was my maid of honor. Since I live in Colorado, we never saw each other, but we remained in close touch online for many years. She was a wonderful woman, and I was deeply shocked and grieved to hear of her passing. I will always miss her.

Christy will always be a very special person in our hearts. She was an amazing friend who always welcomed you with a bright smile and open arms. We will forever be grateful for Christy introducing us to each other some 20+ years ago. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family who she was so very proud of and who she loved so very much.

Chris came into mine and my dads life over 6 years ago. She was down to earth and made a huge impact in mine and my dads life. I have so many good memories that I will cherish of her forever. I am so thankful that she was not only a part of my dads life but also a part of mine and my sisters life. She was there for my dad when he needed someone the most and never once did she complain or not want to lend a helping hand. Ill cherish the memories of the trip to Daytona in January of 2015, and the race at Martinsville in October of 2015. Meg, Mark, Drew and Emery I am so sorry for your loss, and please know that if you need anything at all dad and I are just a phone call away... You all are in our thoughts and prayers through this time. Wayne and Ann Marie

There was no having to prove yourself with Christy...She loved and accepted me from our first meeting. She had a great sense of humor and laughed heartily. She was the Sister I never had. We shared numerous conversations and experiences...Chris...you will always be a part of me.
