    Dear Bob and Gina

    Please accept my heartfelt condolences.

    Chris was a great co worker and friend. She treated people with respect and she gained the respect of those who had the great pleasure of working with her at HCR. She had a special way of resolving differences in a manner that was fair and honest because she cared deeply about both the patients and the employees. I learned so much from her over the years!

    Her sense of humor, her unique laugh and big smile always made me laugh as we shared so many special moments long the way.

    She will forever remain in my heart!

    Iona, Eric, Kristy and David Mackey

    Bob, Gina and Family,

    My heart is saddened by the transition of Chris into another home. I pray that God will comfort and sustain you now and always.
    She was always a blessing to me. She was my teacher, mentor and friend. We shared many good times and not so good times together. The first time we met at HCR we knew that we were meant to do that work together. We learned to trust each other. We cried together and laughed together. We encouraged each other and scolded each other. We fought and made up, we disagreed and supported each other in our disagreement. We called each other MUTT and JEFF. 🙂
    I honor her for the kind, gentle and loving person she was. I will forever hold her in my heart.

    Phyllis Jackson

    I was so sorry to hear that Chris passed away. We had many great days working together at HCR in the scheduling department. She was a great supervisor.
    I had the pleasure of talking to her recently and was hoping we could have had many more days to reconnect.
    My heart goes out to your family.
