Christine and I were first cousins. She was a few years older but anytime we meet, normally at Grandma Crews house she was kind & full of joy. Last time I saw her was at Uncle Elmo 90th birthday party. I know the world will be sadder without her.

Christine was one of the sweetest people I have ever known. When I went to her house she made me feel like one of her own children.
She was a wonderful cook and always had room for one more at her table. I loved to hang out with her and her kids on their porch on East Grand Ave. One of my fondest memories is when she let me pin curl her hair and it was so curly. I know for sure that GOD has a new angel in heaven.
