8: Our Friend Chris... Who would have known we'd make a great friend, With the wonderful Chris who lives round the bend. She had lots of friends but she gave us a start, And since that first night she has shared her warm heart. For Chris is a friend we will have for a lifetime, Despite only taking the field after half time. She's taught us true kindness and what real friendship is, And welcomed the Watts - including the kids. As surrogate "Sullys" we always pop in, To say 'Happy Birthday', 'Goodbye' or 'Good Win!' From Moreton to Burleigh - we've had such a ball, And when true friends are needed she's the first one we'd call! Happy Birthday Chris!!! Love always Jim, Chris, Jacob, Jonah and Annabelle Watts

16: I could talk for hours (as you know) describing what a wonderful person and friend Chris has been to me. Like many others I have always considered Chris as one of my closest and dearest friends. The laughter, the jokes, the gatherings, the wine, the "piping hot" coffees, the trust, the support, the headaches, the advice and the relaxed times just being with a true friend. We have enjoyed a lot of fun times together and a future filled with rich friendships like these is a bright one. Happy Birthday to my Beautiful friend Belinda McAuliffe xx
