God Bless you an Breanna, I am glad that I was able to play a small part in the creation of Christine's Garden.??
Thinking of you and Breanna today. So glad to hear the memory garden is still doing well and brings Christine into your lives everyday. Take Care.
Thinking of you today and always !!
It doesn't matter how time passes and life goes on. The loss of a child is never forgotten nor shall she be forgotten. They are a gift regardless of how long we have them. May your happy memories of Christine sustain you and the gifts God sends you be seen. He does so to let you know all is well. I lost my 18 year old girl 38 years ago and remember her everyday. Blessings.
Dear Linda and Breanna,
Time passes us by, but our love for each other strengthens with time. Christine's loving, caring spirit lives on . . . you are never alone.
Thank you for your friendship.

Sorry about your daughter she was a pretty girl. Dee
Dear Linda & Breanna,
What nice words for such a missed and beautiful daughter and mother. Love, Doris
Dear Linda and Breanna,
I did not have the opportunity to know Christine in this lifetime, but since I have come to know you both, although long distance, I am certain Christine was a very loving, beautiful person. She will love her memorial garden, a true "labor of love". Please know Christine loves you and misses you, too. Peace be with you, today and always.
Dear Linda, I wish I could hold you and take away your pain. I know that is impossible so all I can do is love you and hope it helps in some small way.
Your Friend forever, Betty
I am so sorry to hear about Chris. I often wondered what happened to her. I have some very fond memories of our times together. She was a great friend.
I will keep you all in my prayers. Take Care.
Well I just don't know what to say. I was good friends with Christine when we were in elementary and junior high school. I've thought about her so very many times over the years, more often lately because a new friend of mine calls me Donald, as Christine used to. The last time we spoke was after you had moved to Lone Pine, and came back to visit the Rivers family. We didn't end up seeing each other then and I find myself regretting that now. Everything I read about Christine in this guest book tells me she stayed just as lovely a person as she always was.
I'm so very sorry you're having to go through this. It's just the most difficult thing there is. My love and prayers go out to you. Take care of yourself, Linda. God Bless you and your granddaughter...
Dear Linda & Family, my name is Maryann Budke ,my husband Mark and I were both classmates of Christine. We remember her as a friendly ,outgoing ,& vibrant person. We are truly sorry for your loss.
We will keep you in our thoughts & prayers.
Mark, Maryann & Family
I also went to school with Christine and enjoyed her outgoing personality. I have a picture of her and my brother Scott at the prom and look at it often. I pray that her daughter knows what a special person Christine was and how much love she had to give.
Love in the Lord

My name is Kristine Kackert and I was a classmate of Christine's at Lone Pine High School. I had not seen or heard from Chris since our graduation. One day last August I contacted Chris via Facebook. She wrote me back and told me about her life, and daughter .... and how Breanna was the light of her life. I was truly happy to hear from Chris again. Unfortunately that was the last time we talked. But I was glad to have the chance to reconnect with her.
Chris was a smart, beautiful loving person. She was very well liked in high school. I am sure she was an equally wonderful adult and mother.
I am so sorry for your loss. Find comfort in knowing she is with the Lord.
Blessings and prayers, Kris Kackert-Thorpe
Jerry,Karl and I are so very saddened by Christine's passing. We remember fondly that pretty picture of Christine and Karl on the eve of their high school prom.
I can still see Christine in that lovely mauve-pink gown. All our love and prayers are with you.
Dear Linda, I had the pleasure of working with Christine. She was a gifted and truley lovely woman. I was stunned to hear of her passing and not one day has gone by since, that I don't think of her and feel heartfelt sorrow for your loss and that of all who knew her. She would tell me stories of her daughter Brianna, whom she loved dearly. Her eyes would light up at the very mention of her precious daughter. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Dear Linda and Breanna, Christine's kind and caring heart definitely left this world a better place. She was special in so many ways. Her bright and beautiful smile always greeted those she met. I'll always remember her deep love of all animals and her passion for actually doing all she could to help them. Our prayers are with you both. Love, Sharon and Randy
I am so sorry to hear about Christine’s passing. I met her while working at Nabors. She was a caring, funny, smart, beautiful person. She is missed dearly. My prayers are truely with her daughter and family.
I was so sorry to here about your daughers passing. I met Christine through work at a meeting and have never forgotten her, she was one of those ware people that you come in contact with and never forget. May God's blessings be upon you and all the family, she will be dearly missed.
I am very shocked and saddened by the loss of such a wonderful person. Christine was a friend to me when I felt like I had no other friends. She was always a joy to talk with and I enjoyed her sharing stories with me about her special moments with Breanna. Linda, I thank you so much for calling Christine when I spoke with you and Breanna in the grocery store. I was so excited to hear her voice and she sounded just as pleasant as she did when I would see her in person. That was the last time I spoke with her and I thank you for giving me that special moment I will never forget. I can't stress enough on how special she truly was. She will be missed by many.
I knew Christine from her high school days in Lone Pine. Even though I was a year younger, we became good friends. Christine was one of those friends that would put you first. She always had a smile on her face and a nice thing to say about everyone. I live in Lake Isabella and was shocked and saddened when I came across her obituary this morning. Even though we have not been in touch since our high school graduations, my sister and I both thought about her and wondered about her life. I am saddened to hear of her death at such a young age. My prayers and sympathy go out to her daughter and her entire family during this difficult time. God bless Christine and her family.

I am so sorry to learn of your daughter Christine's passing. This is understandably a very difficult and painful time for you, Breanna, family and friends. We lost our Jeff in February, so we are walking that walk. If I can ever be of help, I hope that you will contact me; I would consider it an honor. You are not alone.
