  1. de Mos,Suzanne :

    I knew Chris from her volunteering at the Harvest Hill’s Bethany music program with Kay Chudleigh and the Corpus Christi noisy ladies. She made a lot of beautiful quilts for charity.
    We always had a good time together. Her son’s sudden death hit her hard . It is hard to believe she was 88 already. My sincere sympathy to her family. Sincerely: Suzanne de Mos.
