    My heart is heavy hearing of Chris’s death. She was a sister-in-law for 18 years, but I considered her a friend and bowling partner. We spent so many mornings and afternoons together when our kids were young. The kids would play and we’d have conversations over coffee and the sounds of our kids playing. I always enjoyed when Barb and MaryJo joined us..
    Rest in peace dear friend. Your loving family and friends will miss your smile and laughter..

    Dearest Mark, sons, daughters-in-law, and all of the Borngrebe family,
    It is with sadness, but also with joy that we celebrate the life of your beloved Chris. As you said at her visitation, you are indeed a very blessed man! Having faith in our Lord Jesus and his Heavenly Father, we know that Chris and all those in the memorial tombs will soon be back in our arms. Our tears will be not of sorrow, but of great joy. You and my little bro Tom met while walking to school in the 5th grade. I was a year older in the 6th. We all became great friends through our college years. Adding Bob Moody to you and Tom, it was as though I had three brothers and not just one. I thrilled to reconnect with you a few years ago when we were both in our 60’s! I will be in touch again soon. You have our most sincere sympathies in behalf of myself, my wife Lenore, my bro Tom, my two little sisters, and all the Triba tribe. God bless you and your entire Borngrebe family, dearest Mark! Agape, Mike
