My Story

Chris was born on April 4, 1982 in Hopewell, VA to Robert and Connie.  He grew up in Nashville, TN.  He played the trumpet in marching band at McGavock High School in Nashville.  He moved to Madison, WI in July of 2007, accepting a job at Epic.  He got diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma in September of 2006.  Chris and I met  eHarmony in February of 2007 and met in person at church in March 2007.  He had just finished up his last chemo treatment, but I knew we had a lot in common and the relationship would continue..  Chris invited me to a dinner he had with Epic and from then on, we were inseparable.  We took a few trips to Nashville to visit his family and his family welcomed me with open arms.  He proposed in 2008, after getting out of the hospital receiving chemo.  Chris loved hockey, so on his birthday in 2008, I took him to Chicago, to see the Blackhawks play the Predators.  We had a blast.  We got married on March 21, 2009, and this was probably the year Chris was the healthiest since I knew him.  We had  a wonderful first anniversary honeymoon cruise to Hawaii in March of 2010.  It was the best experience!  When we got home is when Chris got very sick and his courageous battle ended on May 9, 2010, on Mother's Day.
