I grew up with Chris. We lived in the same neighborhood and played together as children. We had a lot of fun and shared adventures. Our moms worked together at Sears and our dads helped each other repair roofs and was a good childhood. Later - after high school we didn’t see each other as often but occasionally our paths would cross and it was like no time had passed. You can’t imagine how happy I was to see her when we walked into Forest Park Lawndale when my dad had passed and there was Chris ready to help and make it all go smoothly and be ok. She hadn’t changed a bit. She talked about her family and let us know she was happy and very glad to be there to help us when we needed it most. What a wonderful gift! I’m so sorry to hear of her passing. May she Rest In Peace and may God bless her family.

My deepest condolences to you and your family. Prayers for all who knew and loved her. I'm sorry for the great loss to your family. May God comfort you during this time and may he grant you a peace that passes all understanding.
Christine hired me 5 years ago to be apart of her Sales Team with SCI. I WILL NEVER forget the opportunities that decision has afforded me. I will forever be grateful and thankful. She spent time to help develop me into the successful leader that I am today... I train my team today, the same way she trained me.... You will never be forgotten... You made a difference in my life. Thank you Christine.

Christine, I can't believe you're gone. So many memories of working with you trying to get our new sales managers signed up and prepped for NSMDP. Good grief.... the stories we could tell. And more recently, you know I've been living vicariously through you at your peaceful lake house. The images have been beautiful and make me smile..... as will memories of you. Rest in peace my friend......

My condolences to the Carter family. I have great memories of Christine and our time working together. Everyone that had the opportunity to spend time with Christine could feel her genuine care for others. We shared many laughs together and she could always put a smile on your face. It's hard to believe she is gone but I know she will never be forgotten. God speed, Christine.

From her first day on the job at Forest Park Lawndale, you knew Christine had found her calling. I am glad I got to be apart of her journey. There are a million stories that can be told, all are true. What a wonderful person to know. To Chuck and the kids she was most proud of you as you were growing up, and the grand kids as they came into their life. May peace and comfort be given to this family.
