Not sure what to say?

In looking for my old friend, Christy Abraham, I came across this obituary. So sad to see this. I knew your Mom and Sister from her brief years in Riverside, California, in our 20's. She was a treasure. I am not surprised to see that she touched so many lives in a sweet and loving way. Good-bye my dear old friend.

I just recently learned of your passing. I am fully aware you will know my thoughts here although you've moved on.

But I wanted to let your family know that although I never interacted with the the grown up Christine who obviously was a famous dance instructor, I spent hours and days and years of my very early childhood as your neighbor 'crossing the big street' so that we could indulge our wildest fantasies with our Little Kiddle dolls building them empires of grass and trees and...

Chris touched our lives in so many ways. This spring has been exceptional with the blooming trees and flowers! On many mornings, I would think of Chris and how much she loved what brought her joy...a beautiful and rare flower in her garden, a difficult dance that was performed to perfection, her many friends and most of all her amazing and supportive family. Lissy and Erica, you performed the dance on Tuesday just the way your mother taught you...with grace and prayerfulness. I can picture...

Miss Christine has always been such a sweet lady to me. I have known her since little league softball playing with Erika and Elissa. As I got older most of my friends were in her dance classes and seemed to really love her and the studio. Now that I have a daughter (Madison), I wanted nothing more than for her to take dance lessons from Miss Christine. She is in her third year and loves ballet. We will greatly miss Miss Christine. She had such a great spirit and was always up-lifting. My...

My first day of dance, I was so anxious that I'd make a fool of myself as a novice joining a group of girls who had already been dancing for years. Luckily Miss Chris immediately made me feel welcome and reassured. As I continued dancing from middle school until HS graduation, she continued to inspired confidence, self-esteem, and grace at a time when I (like so many girls) needed it most. She is greatly missed. My heart goes out to Erika and Elissa,with whom I had danced, and the rest of...

"We should consider every day lost on which we have not danced at least once.”

? Friedrich Nietzsche

Thank you for teaching us Miss Christine. You have touched so many lives.

To "Miss Christine's" family, Your daughter and mother was such a positive influence on all those she came in contact with, especially her dance students. She touched so many lives through the beauty of dance and her loving ways. We have fond memories of our daughters' dance lessons and the annual spring dance performances. She made every dancer feel special. Our condolences,

So sorry to hear of you loss. She was an amazing lady. She made a the world around us a better place.

Miss Christine was my iodol, as a young girl taking dance classes from her. Ever so patient, and graceful. I'm sure hundreds of other girls felt the same thru her years as a dance teacher. She will be missed by many...
