I am so very sorry that this entry is coming from me, Linda Storm, Chris' sister and not Chris herself. I apologize for not letting everyone know sooner but Tc was a huge help in taking care of something I was not yet able to do. As most of you already know, Chris passed away Wednesday Oct. 21 at 9:10 am, after a terribly long but couragous battle. I hope this will reach everybody that meant so much to Chris and helped her in tremendous ways through the toughest battle of her life. I hope every one of you know how very much you meant to Chris. You were there for her in so many ways that us as family, tried, but couldn't be. I am not as adept at the computer and the forums as Chris, so I don't know exactly know how to go everywhere and get messages to everyone, so please help me in letting everyone know. Chris' service will be Monday Oct. 26 @ 10 am. Chris is a fantastic and beautiful person who has left an empty spot in my life. I wish this horrible monster that takes so many beautiful people didn't even exist. She so wanted to be able to make it to the Chicago event this year. Although she was not there physically, I know she was there in everyones hearts. Please continue these yearly events in honor of Chris, as that is what she so dearly wanted. Many of you got to know Chris better than I, in many different ways, in the four years you knew her, due to the connection you all shared, and that I was not able to fully understand. I am sorry if this sounds like I am rambling on, I just don't know how to express the sadness of my (our) loss and convey to all of you just how much I, my family and Chris were fortunate to have you there for her. Thank you so very much. Linda.
