Dear Cris,

You will be greatly missed. Your smile, the way your whole body would shake when you laughed, the joy in your heart, your generous spirit and love you openly shared with all. I find peace knowing you are no longer in pain and hampered by your physical body; but, instead you are celebrating with Jesus......and smiling as always.
Love always,
Tami Camp Dickerson

This was Garry & I trying to leave for our honeymoon but she wasn’t going to have it. I will miss our conversations on how much Garry & Farris are so much alike. She was the most selfless person I knew and would do anything for anyone. Mom you will be missed and loved so much. Until we meet again 💜
