    Didn’t know Chris as well as I’d liked but have known Mike for decades and wanted to express my admiration for the selfless effort he expended while supporting Chris during her protracted illness.

    We should all be so lucky to have this man by our sides during a time of need.

    As I was a young woman pursuing a career in law Chris was an inspiration to me. I figured if she could thrive in the world of male-dominated Boeing engineers I could do it do it with a bunch of lawyers too. Her upbeat demeanor and zest for life made her a delight to be around and brought positive energy to any interaction. Mike, I’m glad you had many happy years together. I am sorry for your loss.
