  • Dear Carol an Cathy,

    I have not seen Chris since you were all little girls and lived next door to my mother, Margaret Bryan. I even baby sit you all when Chris was in diapers. I knew she had a lot of problems as she grew up and prefer to remember her as a little girl. My heart goes out to you both, as I know you have been through a lot with her. I’m sure your Mom is very proud of how you two have tried to take care of her. God bless you both.
