Dear Dave and family,
We are deeply saddened to hear of your unspeakable loss. Though we did not know much about your wonderful wife, our memories of you assure us of how special she must have been. We know through the work that you did for us over the years in Spencer and Shrewsbury that you are a person of great faith, strength, and integrity. Making sense at these times of deep sadness and despair is difficult but we believe that all things work for good for those whose faith is in our Lord! WE send our fondest and most sincere wishes of healing to you all

Christine was my daughter, Nicole’s coach at North Star middle and high school.

Christine never criticized,, was always patient and encouraging.

She really was a guiding light to so many young people. Our lives have been enriched because of her.
