Cree's cousin, Lynn Whitman, asked me to convey his condolences. I want to add mine, too. I remember her from my childhood as part of a warm and generous family. I'm glad I got to be in touch with her in her later years. I'll miss her Facebook posts.
Cree was so welcoming to me when I dated and married her brother, Patrick. Although the marriage didn't last our friendship still survives so I am lucky to have been in contact with Cree for many years. I spoke to her late last year and she was so brave and pragmatic about her illness. She was so lively, friendly and charming. I will miss her. She gave my Dad a knitted cardigan many years ago and he called it, "his Cree". I'm so grateful to her for that and her support through the years.
My sympathy to Jim, Patrick, Greg, Cynthia, Chris and Heidi.
I have so many good memories of growing up in PA and hanging out with Heidi and Cree, she was a good mom to us all. My thoughts and prayers go out to the family in this sad time.
As Greg's mother -in-law, (Cynthia's mom) I was often with Cree at family gatherings.She was a fun person to know. She prided herself in keeping up with current happenings in the world--and especially the world of sports . (We didn't get into politics).
She was such a caring grandparent---following each child's progress through school and beyond.
She faced her cancer with such determination. She would be the winner !! I was amazed at her ability to move ahead with life . There was never a 'poor me' attitude.
She gave strength and courage to those dear to her . I feel honored to have known and shared many wonderful memories with Cree .
I share your loss,
I see where you get your strength and beauty from.
My thoughts and prayers to you and all your family.
Love and lots of Hugs,
