Christine was like a second mother to me and my siblings. Her and Uncle Bill were both so kind, generous and loving. She will always have a special place in my heart.

I am sorry of the passing of Chris. We worked together for years. Many good laughs and funny things that happened along the way. I know she will be missed sorely by her family who she loved very much.
