Condolences from Cousin Anna. I'm sorry I didn't stay in closer contact with you.
Cristy, Anna and Edward are sitting on the laps of our grandfather Charles Edward Trembly, Marjorie Crane Trembly, Cristy's dad Charles Dee, my dad Gray Crane, and my mom Emma Jane. I believe this was Christmas 1958

I remember Cristy as someone who’d do just about anything for just about anybody. Quiet and thoughtful but sweet and gregarious. I’m sorry to hear this news. She was a wonderful person.

The first time I came to church with Joellen, I had an idea about the music, but I didn't know for sure 'til I sat in the front right pew and listened to (of all things) a pop song (wha? -- at church??) titled "Only Love". Cristy sang it emotively, and the choir backed her up with a lovely arrangement by Baby Doll (= Joellen, for those of you who might not know Malibu UMC). It was the most wonderful musical introduction to Joellen, to the MUMC Choir, to its musical possibilities -- and especially to Cristy. Such a beautiful voice! Such a talented singer. I joined the MUMC Choir shortly thereafter, and we've had many ab-fab musical experiences since then. However, that moment was -- and is and forever will be -- very special to me. I'll never forget it, and I'll NEVER forget Cristy. She always gave us vocal performances with all her heart and soul. We've missed her voice, we've missed her singing (and the joy it brought her and us), and we all miss her greatly.

Cristy, I will miss you. My conversations with you were very rich and I felt as though I was standing the the Country you were telling me a story about. You would bring back material from different countries and then make skirts from it, I always asked what Country you were wearing!
You were so generous with your talents and I have such respect for you in the Industry you chose as your career.
I will truly miss your singing. It was the highlight of my Sunday to hear you solo a song that you had created. I love your voice.
You meant a lot to me in my years at MUMC. See you on the other side.

Cristy was so wonderful, loving and generous to me. She reached out when I needed a hand and I'll never forget her and her kindness. Her memory is a blessing. Thank you Cristy. Travel safely into the next world.
