Dominic and Family,

My thoughts are with all of you at this most difficult time.

Christine put smiles on the faces of many at Alden Gardens of Bloomingdale. My mother only knew Christine for a very short time, yet they became friends very quickly and got along so well.

You're a terrific man and I wish you and your family all the best!

It was my honor to have known Christine. She was such an inspiration to me and my co-workers. as well as to the residents in the facility she lived in. I was able to assist in her daily care, we shared many stories with each other,we prayed together, laughed and cried together and loved each other. She will truly be missed and I will remember her as my leopard queen forever. My deepest sympathies go out to her family and friends.
