In memory of Christine, who was a special person in my life beginning with the days of the Discovery Disco. She was so full of life and everything was always positive. For decades of a loving friendship we were able to share ideas and visions. I was so blessed to be a part of her life and watch her blossom. Her smile and attitude would light up the room whenever she entered. Now is the time for me to reflect on how she lived and that she will always be with me in spirit and in loving memories. My condolences go out to the entire family. The Lord now has another Angel. Rest in Peace Christine.
