With sadness I learned of my dear friend's passing. I grew to love Christine and Walter when I first moved to Kennesaw. She was a lovely, Christian lady and I feel blessed for having the privilege to know her. Bless you family members. Find peace in knowing that she is with her beloved Walter in heaven
