Well, it has been exactly one month since you went home to heaven and I miss you tremendously! Every day I think of you and want to call you and ask what you are doing. They say the pain and sadness ease with time, but no one ever said how much time. I loved you so much and never said it enough. As Nancy and I go through your things we are discovering fun things, facets of your life we never knew.

I know you are having a great time with Jesus and all the kids and relatives. One day I will be with you again for eternity. But for now, I MISS YOU and my heart is so heavy with grief

I was saddened to hear and read of the passing of Christine. What a sweet and precious, kind Lady she was. Always had a kind word and smile for me each time we met. Even though I did not see her that often, I enjoyed those Smith Reunions and always looked and waited for her arrival so I could talk with her. Even though I cannot be there to Hug each one ..My Prayers are with each of You during Your Loss of Mother, GrandMother ..and Friend .. Love Each of You. Melanie Beaty Duncan

Christine was one of the sweetest ladies I have ever known! I grew up in Hardin Bpt Church and Christine always always had a hug for me and kind words to say! To me, she was a true Saint! Although I am saddened by her passing, I am also happy that she is in heaven with Jesus and reunited with her loved ones gone before her. My thoughts and prayers are with her family here! May the God of Peace and Comfort envelope you all with His love!
