Dear Jen and family,
So sorry and shocked to hear about Kris! I got to know him last summer when he was staying with my nephew Jesse! I shared with him about knowing your mom and how beautiful she was. I also used to go to bingo with your great grandmother Hester. He was very sweet and a gentleman and certainly loved by his family and friends.
Love and prayers, Shirley Gauthier
