Bill, Ben, and family,

I'm sorry to hear of Christine's passing. She was so lovely to me when we met - she was so kind to invite me over to show me photos and share family stories, details about her mother and my grandmother that only she would know (as Aunt Clara's only daughter, and that my grandmother's only daughter would be too young to remember.) May she rest in peace, and may she be reunited with her parents and Juanita (and her Aunt Katherine and Uncle Joe.) -cousin Julie
