Christine carried God's love in everything and everyone around her; guided by this, she inspired many with her strength, courage, grace and unwavering faith. Without speaking a word, her smile would capture you for a lifetime. As a mother and a wife, she instilled everything she had in Garrett, making him the loving boy he is today.
She brought out the softer side of Steve, and showed him what it is to feel unconditional love. As a sister she held Erika, Andrea, Lee and Letitia in her heart at all times. The bond they have to protect and care for each other truly exemplifies what love of family stands for. As Auntie, she encouraged each of them, giving love in everything they did and will do. Our hearts will forever be filled with loving memories of an angel that came from the heavens.
