Not sure what to say?

We were very sad to hear of Atty Moran's passing. She was helping us through the process of adopting our foster daughter. She was a bright spot in this whole adoption journey. Every time she visited our home, she left us feeling encouraged and uplifted and hopeful. She was always so warm and sweet to all our children, and spoke fondly of her own family. She told me how much she had loved homeschooling her children, and she adored getting to spend time with them. Her love for her family...

You will be greatly missed. Thank you for taking care of our family when nobody else would. You are an angel and I'm so glad I had the privilege to meet you and even though it was only a couple times, you made an everlasting impression on our family. You will be missed.

As a young teen, I knew Christan as the cool older sister of my good friend Caitlin. She seemed to always be off doing fun things and I remember being impressed with her stories of road trips and sense of adventure. To her family and friends, I am so very sorry for your loss. Christan truly is a star shining brightly, now and forever.

To the entire Moran Family:

Christan was truly a remarkable human
being. A very special lady. You are in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.

With our deepest sympathy,

Perri and Dennis Mucci

Christan was thoughtful, kind, intelligent, patient and strong. I will remember her as a pillar not just of understanding and empathy but as a tough, take no prisoners, feminist. That was something I really loved about her. I had the pleasure of learning alongside and from Christan. Her death is a great loss to society. She was so clearly driven by a desire to help others. Often, solely her presence was enough to sooth the anxieties that come with being a law student.

I first met Christan in our Legal Imagination class at UConn Law, where she helped me test the boundaries of my comfort zone and inspired me to embrace who I was becoming. It continued with her lifting me up during the deepest and darkest valley of my life.

She was beautiful, she was loved, and she will be missed. Her legacy of compassion and fighting for justice will live on in me and the countless others she blessed with her presence. My heart breaks at her loss, but my soul...

I had the pleasure of teaching Christan as she was gearing up for a second career in law. But Christan taught me every bit as much as I did her. She brought prodigious wisdom and compassion to class discussions and left all of us, teacher and students alike, transformed for the better. I am terribly sorry for your loss, and for the loss to our community of such an extraordinary woman.

Through the depth of your loss, the joy of remembrance will come through. You are all in our thoughts and prayers.

As kids, us Matharu boys spent many afternoons at the Morans and had the immense pleasure of being in the presence of Mrs. Moran. As a strange seven-year old, I became fascinated with classical music and Mrs. Moran was one important person who helped foster that fascination. If it was not for her, I wouldn't be who I am now, not would my brothers and my parents be who they are now. She added a richness to our lives, one that was magnetic and wonderful. The world has certainly become much...
