    Christine was such a beautiful woman who loved music, and loved to dance. At the end of a song she would always say yeehaa. She was one of a kind, and will be deeply missed.

    The obituary was very well written. I am sorry that I was never able to meet your mom but I have always been in the background watching how the family was always doing everything they could for her. She was a beautiful lady and it sounds like she lived a very interesting and busy life. I know this is a tough time but it is also a new beginning. Please let me know if I can do anything for you My family have you all in our hearts. I will not be able to go to service but will see you all soon
