Chris and Lee were the first friends my husband and I made when we moved to Center Ossipee, NH. It was a friendship that grew with laughter, love and oh so many adventures, before children and after. Chris' positive attitude was so infectious. Her laugh, smile, kind gentle ways, and enjoying the little things in life with her will be so missed. I am so grateful she was a part of my life and will stay in my heart forever.

Chrissie was a great treasure who came into lives of the Risch Family from the earliest days she and Lee arrived in the Valley and forever after. Our first adventure was skiing the snowfields pre any of the boys. Our two families thrived, sharing experiences meeting challenges and taking on adventures  through seeing the four of them Greg, Scott, Jake and Matt grow and mature into wonderful, caring men, husbands and fathers. They are her legacy. Scotty has beautifully expressed the essence of who Chrissy was to so many She will forever be in our hearts.

O Lee, Greg, Scott, and your families, it was a pleasure to know your Mum, and Gran. I first met Chris at a Lamaze class in 1976 when she was expecting her first born, Greg and I knew from that first moment she was the loveliest and kindest person. As time went on our two boys became best friends for life. They shared so many adventures with you and I hold those memories in my heart, thank you. Chris I will forever remember your beautiful smile and kindness. This world is a better place because of you and you will live on in your family’s hearts forever. May you all find comfort knowing how much you all meant to her. RIP my friend.

Dear Lee, Scott and Greg,
We are so sorry for your loss. Our memories of Chris (and her family) go back many years when you first moved to Pollard St. We remember many get togethers and impromptu cookouts. Joan remembers playing tennis with Chris at the courts at the top of Tasker Hill Road, with newborn Julie in a car bed and getting the car stuck in the ditch. A silly memory but one we both remember as she had to call me to get her out.
Joan remembers how excited Chris was expecting her first son, and of course the second one as well. She loved her boys! Our thoughts are with you all.
Russ and Joan Lanoie

What a lovely woman! Chris was always so calm & gentle with a ready smile.
So many memories of her at the boys hockey games (bbrrrrr), flag football, soccer, and the list goes on. The Mount Washington Valley was fortunate to have enjoyed Chris and the Gregory family for many years. I will think of Chris with a smile on my lips and a tear in my eyes. Be well and remember the sweet person that she was.

Dear Chrissy,  It was my honor to be considered among your friends. I saw you as a quiet, gracious, and humble Scottish lady. We met square dancing and oh what fun and laughs we all had. From there we all danced off to many adventures. Whether it be fly-ins, Westy camper searches, cribbage games or yours and my love of cozy cottages, tea and the British Isles, the best were the laughs we shared. You left too soon, but your stamp remains on all those you held near and dear. I hope by now you have met up with Fred and your dear friend Morag.  I will catch up with you a little later.   Dear Lee and family my heart grieves for all of you. Love Sheila

Wonderful memories of our times together in The Villages, Florida. Chris and Lee were certainly the most gracious hosts. We have enjoyed many dinners together, especially enjoying Chris’ British dishes such as Shepard’s Pie. Chris was a wonderful friend and will be greatly missed.

I am saddened to hear of the loss of an incredible women like Chris. I met her and her family back in 1987 thru a mutual friend. I was young and Chris became like a second mother to me. I remember her to always be so calm and thoughtful. When you talked to her, you could see she was "taking in" everything you were saying. She will be a part of me for the rest of my life and I will cherish my memories of her.

To my dear and sadly missed cousin Christine. I have the fondest memories of when we were children brought up as brother and sister by two close families. We played together and never argued about anything. Later our paths diverged but we kept in touch and I often flew across to Boston to visit with you, Lee, Greg and Scott in New Hampshire. I have memories of the house on Pollard street, Merrill Farm Resort and the beautiful house built for you on Stark Road. I often drove the little Geo, a great little car and I was always relaxed about driving on the "wrong" side of the road (right side.) I miss you Christine and it is hard to accept that you are no longer with us. With love from your cousin, Duncan.

Our Mum was the kindest, most graceful, patient, and resilient woman…and the person I admired most. She was always there with unconditional love and support, she knew just what you needed when we were sick or down, and was the best listener.  She spoke up when it mattered and was agreeable when it didn’t. She was always up for an adventure, loved to travel and explore and she loved being by the water. She enjoyed a good balcony with a view, reading a book, reciting poems, sand between her toes, sun on her face, and always a good cup of tea. Wherever she went she assimilated with such ease, and she made anyplace feel like home. She was the heartbeat of our family, she was the best mother anyone could dream of, and I miss her terribly already. We are grateful to have been able to hold her hand until the end and to feel her spirit take flight, no longer in pain. I can already feel her around us and will continue to carry her in my heart for strength and guidance. I love and appreciate you more than you'll ever know, Mum. Your son, Scott
