To Christine Fusillo’s family,
Our hearts go out to everyone in Dr. Christine Fusillo's family and to her many friends. We all know -- we lost a good one. Dr. Fusillo really was exceptional -- with a huge heart, a great sense of humor, and a brilliant mind. Without any doubt, she helped alter my family's fears and anxiety as we faced life threatening food allergies and asthma. Her attitude made all things possible, her committed conversations gave us understanding and comprehension, and her patience and guidance gave us strength of purpose.
I can't believe that she is gone -- we will miss her so much. In addition to the medical problems we discussed, I will miss our long chats about everything from the proper clothes to wear to work to the challenges we both faced raising a family and balancing our work and marriages. Over the 15 years that we all knew Dr. Fusillo, our friendship grew along side our doctor/patient relationships. She took care of my whole family and my sister's family and then friends of mine as well. She helped me in my fledgling years of creating a food allergy support group, she offered advice when I had troubles educating family, friends and the school district about food allergies, and she discussed all the latest research and email that I passed along to her from the Food Allergy and Anaphylaxis Network, newspaper articles, and research papers. We discussed all the latest findings, she would explain scientific details to me and we both would get excited about what lay ahead. I will always hear her clear and funny greeting when we came into her office: “Hey, it's the Holliday girls! Come on in!” She sparkled when she talked and she put my kids at ease when they had to face those skin tests.
She clearly loved her family and talked about her children and home with excitement and passion and I would always be amazed by how she balanced it all with her work. I know it is a tragic loss for those closest to her, her husband and children, mother and siblings -- my family sends our deepest condolences to each of you as you struggle to deal with your loss and the difficult months you have all shared and will continue to share.
We're all so very lucky to have known her.
Rosalie, Scott, Ilo and Haven Holliday
