Sending much love to Ron, Devin and Destiny. Christina was so lovely, very open, kind and sharing. She and Ron had the kids over many times to visit (we met through our children) and I visited as well in their very loving home. You will be missed by so many. Rest in peace, Christina.

I knew Christina through Devin who went to school with my sons. She always had a smile and a laugh to add to any gatherings we had amongst the parents of our little group. She opened her home up many times to all of us and I always enjoyed all interactions we had. She certainly had sparkle to her personality and it is a travesty to lose such a great mom, woman, friend, and spirited soul. Rest in peace Christina! Much love to Ron, Devin and Destiny in these tough times.

I was so saddened to hear of Christina's passing so suddenly. She was a beautiful soul with a beautiful face and smile and a huge heart. I met her in theater in NSCC - I did at least two musicals with her and will always remember her as being one of the most pleasant, sweetest people that I have ever met. My heart breaks for her closest friends and family. She was far too young to be taken away from the world so soon. Thinking of Ron and Devin and of Destiny as well. I'm so very sorry for your loss.

I will never forget her smile. It lightened up a room the minute she walked in. I had the pleasure of knowing Christine, Ron and Devin through my family when my son and daughter in law got married. From then on in we were all family and loving the part of being together. I will never forget the family get together's and how much we laughed and just being crazy. Christine had a loving, caring soul that will live on with her family and friends forever. I hope God knows what he is getting in the lovely lady. We will miss you and think of you often.

I first met Christina during our time at North Shore Community College in the early 1990's. We met when cast together in the spring show for "Cabaret". We hit it off from the start, sharing an interest in television and movie production studies. After working together in a few shows during college, we drifted apart and lost touch. Through Facebook we reconnected and started to slowly catch up and share where our lives had taken us to this point. Off and on we would have "conversations" through Facebook, touching base once in awhile when time permitted. To discover this news so suddenly really shocked and saddened me, knowing that my friend was gone so soon. I offer my deepest condolences to her husband, children and family. She was always a fantastic person and a great friend to me. I'll look back fondly on the memories we shared during our college days. I'm sure it goes without saying, she'll be missed more than words can ever express. Rest in peace my friend.
