Condolence: To Francis, Chris’s family and friends:
I was shocked and saddened to learn of Chris’s sudden passing when I was away. As a fellow volunteer fitness instructor, I know she was well liked by her colleagues and the participants in her classes.
Please accept my sincere condolences.
Condolence: Such respect for Chris, a colleague who made me smile even on tough days. We worked together at the Red Cross/Canadian Blood Services and for a brief time shared an office despite being in different departments. Our commiserations were joyful and therapeutic. A wonderful woman. My condolences to her loved ones.
Condolence: Dear Francis, Carl and Jenny,
My condolences to you and your families. During the past five decades you became a part of my life through Chris. Chris and I became close friends in grade 9. She was a true friend; sharing in the happy times and supporting me during difficult times. Chris was a beautiful person on both the outside and inside. I witnessed the love she had for so many people in her life. She will be greatly missed by her family and friends. I will cherish our friendship memories until we meet again. God Bless.
Condolence: To Jenny,Bryan & Families:Paula and I were very saddened to have read in the paper about Chris passing away.We remember her as someone who was kind to everybody and carried that through in her retirement years. You are in our thoughts and
prayers at this time.

Condolence: Dear Francis, Carl, Jean and family,
Our sincere condolence in the loss of Christine. We can't imagine how difficult this must be for all of you. Our thoughts and prayers go out to you. We met Christine only a few times, one being the auction at our home where Francis acquired Star Trek plates and other times at birthday parties. We know she was a loved member of your family.
