My heart is heavy with sadness. I will remember Chrystie for her incredible beauty and spirit. She touched countless lives with her love of books and reading (including my children who attended St. Joseph School in CT) and her inspirational fight against ALS. She was truly a special woman: wife, mother, daughter, friend, teacher...I will never forgot her, she left a strong presence in this world.
Thinking of you today as my students learn about ALS in class and I tell the story of your tremendous courage to live life to the full despite the odds. Missing you very much.
