Dear Gerard,
I am heartbroken to hear of Christina's death. She is such an inspiration to all in the way she lived her life, fought her long illness, and did it all with such beauty and grace. She had a heart that knew no boundaries and her vibrant smile will live in mine forever.

I am so very sorry to read this. Christina was such an asset when she worked at Winchester Hospital. Witty, kind, and caring were just a few of her qualities that will be missed by all colleagues, and those that knew and loved her. My deepest sympathy to her family.
