Chris and your girls....I am so sorry for your loss. Every time I see a picture of Kim from our early years, I think of you too, and how close you were. There are no words I can write that makes sense of any of this. My heart breaks for you.

Our deepest sympathy to Whitney and family. We met Jeff when he and Christine were watching Aubrie play softball with our daughter. Such a kind man and a Giants lover too! Definitely a winner in Gregs eyes, lol. So sorry this happened. No words can help console your pain and sadness in this moment but know you are all thought of often. With Love, Stacey
