My deepest condolences to the family of William (Bill) Christopher. He was a beloved member of our Public Housing Family with the Chicago Police Department. He was a mentor to me and those that came after me. My Gentle Bear will be truly missed. The memories that I am left with, however, will keep me smiling for years to come. RIP Chris……

Joan and Nessa,

Our hearts go out to you in this time of sorrow. Bill was such a great guy and you were the best neighbors! Our lives were richer for knowing the Christopher-Holtz family. I have no doubt Bill is in heaven with his mom and sister and my dad having one great block party! Our deepest sympathies,

Judith, Lowell and Elspeth Gilbert (Higgins)
