Mrs. Gribbin & Family, So sorry to hear if Chris' passing! I just heard the news, as I too relocated out of state. Unfortunately I lost touch with Chris when he moved to Florida after Laurie's passing. Chris gave me many years of great service at Stanley's and the commercial properties in CF and in Providence. He was also a good friend. May he rest in peace!

Sweet nephew Lucas, I wish I could take away your pain and leave you with comfort and acceptance. God's will is hard to understand but we must learn to trust it. For now, your parents will live in your heart and guide you from the heavens, on your life's journey. They are a big part of who you are, Lucas. It was their love that gave you life. Their love, that lives inside you. Their love, that is eternal. Bless you, nephew, and bless the family of Chris Gribbin.

Matthew 5:4 “Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.”

RIP cousin. So many great memories. All of us hanging out as cousins having so many laughs. Your gentle heart and kind ways. Your willingness to help anyone in need. As busy as you were you took time out to do electric work in my home and adamantly wouldn't accept payment. Cousins have a special bond no matter how often they see each other. Love you.
