Chris is incredible, so compassionate and patient. She completely redefined what a nurse should be. She never made us feel that we were "in the way", and she honestly went above and beyond to make sure our family member was comfortable during her last days.

She knew when to give us time alone with her and was there when we were scared and unsure of how much pain she was in. Everyone in the family loved Chris. She made an extremely hard time just a little bit more bearable. She truly deserves to be recognized for the outstanding work she does. Most of all she continued to talk to her, using her name up until the end.
