  1. Our thoughts and prayers are with you Bill in the passing of Kris your love for life. No doubt there will be a whole in your hear until you meet again. Cherish the wonderful memories you made together during your 46 years of marriage and your years of dating before then. You were a wonder husband and friend to Kris. Take care.

  2. I was a colleague of Kris’ for a few years at North Bellingham. At that time, I was the youngster on the team, and she was a seasoned veteran. Her service to children is not forgotten. Thoughts of healing and comfort are extended to you.
