Precious Christine... how all of Heaven is rejoicing at your homecoming, and the World is a little darker at your leaving it... My memories of you and your sweet smile and your loving heart go way back to childhood. I'm so blessed to have had you as even a small part of my life. Love and prayers for the family...
