Sue Ann and family.

I am so sorry to hear of Kris's passing. I haven't seen him in a very long time, but always remember him being a great guy. I used to go with Marcie to his Dad's river home and had so much fun floating down the river with the family.

You are in my thoughts & prayers.

Sue Ann and family,
So sorry to hear of Kris' s passing. My last conversation with him was a couple of years ago at our high school reunion. He shared with me the research he was concluding of a new imaging system for breast cancer detection. I remembered enjoying hearing his passion for the work and service he hoped to make available for the healthcare industry. I had not kept up with either he nor Sue Ann since our high school days. Pam and I pray for your shalom and comfort in adjusting to your loss. John and Pam Riley
