Anyone who knows Chris automatically thinks these words...Beauty, youth, Stevie Nicks, love, nature, and sadly pain. I'm not here to talk about the pain. I'm here to tell you about Chris.To say Chris was special, beautiful, kind or the kind of person you wanted to know is like saying the sun is sort of bright. There are no words that could ever truly describe such a unique woman. I know I am going to mention her beauty a lot, but it's ok because I know she'd like that . Chris was the epitome of beautiful after all. She had this incredible, mysterious, haunting beauty that made her unforgettable. She had the fountain of youth in the palm of her hand and she was absolutely alluring. If you weren't immediately jealous of her then you just had to know her, be a part of her world, in one way or another. She was so open minded and cool well before being cool or open minded was a thing. From her love of music, dancing freely to the live bands or music being played, to her jingly ankle bracelet and tie died shirts, before anyone else even knew what they were, she was hip. She also never judged anyone. She was so free and accepting it was impossible to not feel comfortable being yourself with her. She was also unbelievably kind. Once long before we were friends I remember a time where she helped my family so selflessly. She had heard we were having a tough time through the grapevine and the next thing I knew she was at the door. She had steaks, potatoes, carrots, and cake and she tried to pretend it was extra as to not embarrass us. And that is just one example. Chris, despite her own struggles and deep pain, really truly loved her children. I remember visiting when they were young, and admiring how she always had a clean house for them filled with food and snacks, delicious dinners, video games, cartoons, bathtimes, bedtimes and homework. She was proud of them too and smiled her best smile when she was talking about them. She always did the very best she could do for them because she loved them so much. She also had a very green thumb. She always decorated her home with her planted herbs on her window sills and countertops , and potted plants of Jade,lavender, and aloe. I think it was because she had the spirit of a Native American or similarly Wiccan. She was very into nature and the real true magic of it. The belief that through nature we could find enlightenment, power, and healing. Chris had this way about her that was truly indescribable. It was easy to be encapsulated by her. "She was like a cat in the night, and then darkness. " SN. for many you would love her and then she seemed to slip through your fingers. I, thankfully , had the honor of being her friend and the blessing loving her all the way to the end and I will miss her forever. If you didn't know her, or you did and you are missing her and you want to really experience Chris, or really know who she was and how she made you feel then all you need to do is listen to Stevie Nicks. You will find Chris in so many Stevie Nicks songs, but none like you will in Rhiannon. It is as if it was written about her. She really is, or was unlike anyone you'll ever know. She is a fine skylark, taken by the sky and I will never stop thinking about, loving, or missing her.
My dearest Chris, I'll see you on that porch swing at the cabin by the lake my beautiful friend . till then , I love you....
