Paul , Andrew & Stephanie.

Been neighbors now for over 20 years, words cannot even begin to express how deeply sorry we are for your family. Christine was a devoted wife and mother and that was apparent watching from the sidelines. One of her most recent proud moments was becoming a Grandma to her beautiful little Asher that was obvious! She fought a brave battle for 3 months and was a source of inspiration to many. May she rest comfortably now and watch over you all in the coming days, months and years ahead.

Godspeed
The Bates Family ❤️

To the Harrison and Folkes families....So sorry to hear of Christine's passing. I grew up across the street from the Harrisons. I babysat the girls occasionally.
One of my memories of the Harrison family was watching their Doberman Baron led by Mr. Harrison pulling a child's sled with Christine and Jackie on board. Not sure who had more fun....the girls,their Dad or Baron!
Please accept my deepest sympathy in your loss.
