Not sure what to say?

Dear Christine, I walked through the lobby the other morning and turned to say, "Good Morning Christine". As I turned my head I realized it wasn't you. I dearly miss our friendly conversations, your smile, soft voice & helpful attitude! I sometimes feel your kind soul with us!

Dear Christine,

We miss you. I keep expecting to hear your "Hello Missy".

My thoughts and prayers are with Christine's family. I still can't believe she is gone - she is missed!

I grew up next door to Christine and her family, as her sister Irene was and continutes to be my best friend. Hopefully you are at peace and reunited with your parents. I loved all of your family. Sandy Maimone Romanko

You will always remain in my memory....Thanksgiving dinners, foot massages, your pride in and love for Alex, your desire to be close to family, your smile and the twinkle in your eyes,your truly being interested in all the conversations.

You were on my mind yesterday. Alex brought in his pottery for the employees to buy for the holidays, and just last season I was talking to you about that. I asked when is the pottery coming in and the very next day it did and you called my right away to tell me. I will miss your friendly face in the front lobby. May you rest in peace.

Dear Christine:

Thank you for being a genuinely good person and a friend. It was always great to see you. I always wished there was more time to chat, because you have such amazing depth and warmth. I think that we all got to see bits of you that were just glimpses of that great light that you have, as a human being, as an artist, as a healer and a friend. I miss that light. May it shine on gloriously.

I know that you have a great love for and pride in your son, as...

I appreciated meeting Christine at the wonderful Pysanke - Ukrainian Easter Egg exhibit. We shared a connection as people with Ukrainian heritage and we learned more about each other as e-mail buddies. Peace be with you~ Diyana (SB)

Dear Christine:
You welcomed smile each time I entered the city was amazingly comforting. You had that "I care about you" presence, that I will never forget. I am so glad that got to visit with you last month and talk aobut life. Thank you. I know that the Lord has chosen you to lead the way.
In peace,
