You were an inspiration. More than a mother, more than a teacher.

I remember when your family first moved to Culvert St. Being from a family of 4 kids, (Liz, Rocky, Dom, Anna) I thought oh great, 5 new kids to play with on the block!! You even had a swing set!! We all went sleigh riding where the garden apts now are. I also remember the fun Summer days playing ball games on Howard St and we’d all cover a base, the out field, and your Dad would be the pitcher. Wonderful memories!♥️
Love to all

Being your neighbor was just not enough, we are family.
I will always remember when both families met.
Seeing Christy in her nurse's uniform and being in the Navy.
She made the family proud.
I remember finding out her name was Christy and mine is Christie.
Had to ask my mom why it was different spelling. I was only in second grade.
Love to all of you.
Christie
