Janet and Josh: Due to a phone snafu we lost your message and finally found this connection and a way to offer our condolences. Again, so sorry to hear about Chris, you know I really appreciated all the support he gave my work over the years and of course the chance to work with him on many projects. I hope you are well and in the good comfort of family and friends. When time permits, email or call us back with information on the May activities. The phone number you called is correct. MIke and Barb Streff

Halla family,

My deepest condolences to you and the whole family in regard to Chris and his recent death. He was a favorite patient of mine who was so grateful to be alive and spoke fondly of his family and friends. Clearly, he had passion for life, fishing and the outdoors but his spirit and energy for all of these things was what moved me most. While he was taken too early, he will remain a great patient memory for me! I am lucky to have been able to care for him....

PS. Great video montage--he would have loved it.

Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.
