Thanks To Yanks was saddened by the death of one of our very good friends and volunteers, Christine Blethen. If you were at our 9/11 Dinner and received a Star from a Flag, Chris may very well have been the one who made it. She always stepped in to help with our fundraisers and events, with the most incredible smile ever. Chris had a love for helping others, especially our veterans. She leaves behind a legacy of love and caring, her beloved husband Robert (a marine veteran), her beautiful daughter Toni, her husband and 2 granddaughters. The best way we can remember Chris is to keep smiling while helping others.
