Christine VanderZalm Kittleson
Kyle & Kevin: I am sorry to learn about your mother's passing. My mother has just passed as well. There is a wonderful reunion of Lake Margrethe ladies in Heaven for sure. What wonderful memories we have!
Kevin and Kyle, we are so sorry for your loss. Chris was a good friend and we will miss her. Love, Bobbe
Kyle, Kevin, and the Kittleson Family,
I am dearly sorry for your loss. I met Christine in the 1980's when I was in my mid twenties. What started out as a client-stylist relationship turned into a lasting friendship. Christine and I found we had alot in common and that we both had horses growing up. We both had memories of summers spent boating at our families cottages and we both had two sons. Over the years, Christine and I shared many family stories and adventures. Talking about her Granddaughter Kelsey knowing how to play hockey, and having a horse always brought a smile to her face.
I will always have fond memories of Christine, she was a terrific lady, and my dear friend. She will be greatly missed.
Sorry for you loss.

My brother and I used to house-sit for Mrs. Kittleson in Lansing and visited her a number of times at the cottage in Grayling. One of my fondest memories is of her teaching me how to drive on that dirt road in an old Bronco (manual shift on the "tree" as I recall). Bouncing down the road and grinding gears, while she was laughing and calling out when to shift- I was terrified of wrecking but she was having a blast! A gentle soul with a spark that I am blessed to have known.
My sincere sympathies to Kevin and Kyle.
