Christie was my neighbor all thru middle and high school in Grand Prairie. She was as sweet and funny as could be and was always the light in the room. I can still hear her laugh that was always contagious to everyone that could hear it. I had just heard from Christie and Lori Murphy and we were planning a day at the lake as soon as we could all get the day off from our commitments. I had no idea Christie was sick and now I wish so badly that I had made that day happen. I had not seen her in years but I know she lived by the same high standards she grew up with and I will miss the posts she made on Facebook, my connection to the past and current. God Bless Christie, her family and her friends. She will always live in our memories.
