I knew Chrissy for many years when we both worked at PMMC. She was a wonderful nurse, very comforting to her patients (who loved her) and a hard worker. My sincere sympathy to her family, and may God comfort you.

Helen and I were best friends thru high school and after. She was Maid of honor in my wedding and I was a brides Maid in her wedding. Because my husband was military we didn’t get to see each other often, the last time was 6 years ago and was just like old times. So sorry Kenny we will both miss her.
