I have known Christine since I was ten years old. Christine always took the time out for me even when I was a kid to just listen & talk to me. Over the years even though life became busy, not even time nor distance could ever break the special bond we had between the two of us. She welcomed me and loved me no matter what..Christine treated me like family, I am family.. She was such a sweet and beautiful soul. She was a firecracker...she could go like the energizer bunny. Christine perspective in life..."No matter what life throws at you...keep marching you will get through it"...I love you...One of the last talks we had I told her if she made it to heaven before I did, I will be there for Scott & John just like my mother taught me how a sister is suppose to love their brothers...On October 14, 2020...I went into see her. Her frail body was laying on the couch, she had just got done eating. She is laying their blind. Now, Christine knowing her life was just about over asks me how is Margaret doing? I fought the tears back. I told her I was good but, I was going to have a procedure done on October 29th 2020. She ask about everyone else.I told her I love her, she in return to told me the same. I then touched her foot and I told her I wasn't going to stay long,I could tell she was tired. I told her hopefully, I will see her again soon. However, I knew she wouldn't be with us much longer in the physical sense, but forever she will live in my heart just like Terry & Jerry. Rest in Peace CHRISTINE ♥. I SAY AGAIN, I love you...

Where can I even begin? You gave me the life I am blessed to have today, raised an irresponsible young teenager into a slightly less irresponsible man! You showed me the love and devotion that any child would be more than lucky to have from a parent in this lifetime. Many memories swell in me during this whole process but I can only think of one in particular, many years ago when we were fortunate enough to still have papaw, you had a disagreement with him, you rounded the corner to the living room and I said “hi”... you then pushed me over a coffee table. It sounds so harsh to share that but truly it was the only moment in my life I remember you being human! In every other aspect of this life you have been a saint, an angel in my eyes and my life wouldn’t be close to what it is without you. I love you for everything you were and cherish the memories I’m able to hold onto until I see you again. I miss you with every breath but we will all be just fine here with you watching over us.
