    My deepest condolences to everyone in Christine’s family. I first met Christine when she was a student at Blue Hills. Later I attended several fourth of July Pool Parties at Christine’s home. I always remember Christine’s very loving personality. May Christine rest in peace.

    We are among the many who deeply feel the loss of Christine–bright, vibrant, thoughtful, kind and caring, so nice to be with–all qualities that made her a friend, a wonderful nurse and pro-life counsellor.

    Our condolences go out to Christine’s loving husband Rick and her family.

    We have been blessed to have known Christine and are reminded of an ancient verse by C. Norton:
    “Weep not for her who dieth,
    For she has ceased from tears,
    And to her voice replieth,
    One that she has not heard in years.”

    I knew Christine from Mary Immaculate of Lourdes. Whenever I’d see her she’d ask how my mom was doing and tell me that she was praying for her. She was very kind and thoughtful and always very pleasant to talk with. My condolences to her husband and the rest of her family. I will pray for her and all of you.
