My heart goes out to all  of Christine’s  family  and friends who mourn her  loss. Her effervescent spirit will always remain with those who love her . She is now at peace and happy in the arms of Our Lord.  Even though distance kept us apart, my siblings and I will always remember our wonderful times together in Massapequa so many years ago.

My family and I visited with Christine and her family in our younger years in NY. My dad and her dad were first cousins and very close! I remember her hearty laugh!😊 Our families come from good stock. She is soaring in the heavens joined by her parents, brother and other family members who have passed! Just maybe she is with my family as well! Love to Joannne and family, Christine’s husband, children and grandchildren!🌼💟

You raised a beautiful daughter. She raised her children to love the Lord. You left a wonderful legacy. Thank you. I’ll see you later.

Christine has known me since I was six years old and throughout the many decades of my friendship with Alaina have gotten to know just how special she is. I was blessed to visit hat about a week and a half prior to her going to hospice, even through her pain we laughed and chuckled about good times. I will forever keep that memories with me. She had such amazing faith and I know she is dancing in the streets with those who passed before you but don’t think for a minute she is checking in on all of you left here on earth. It’s not goodbye but see you later! My prayers and love go out to those that lived her so much. May peace find you during this hard time.

Being a few years younger than Christine and in our early teens, I fondly remember our side jokes and giggling about things that at the time were considered “off color”, when our Aunts and Uncles were not in the room. We use to crack each other up. Her infectious and hearty laugh, will always be the physical trait I remember most about Christine. But what makes me smile and warms my heart the most, is to know that Christine had a strong, personal relationship with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Through the several conversations we had after her diagnosis, Christine’s courage and faith were extremely evident, because of that relationship. She believed in the Master’s words, that whoever believes in Him, shall not perish. And it is by her faith in Him, that I know with all certainty, that she is walking with Him in Paradise. May God surround her entire family with His Holy Spirit to strengthen and comfort them. May God bless you all.

“For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast”
-Ephesians 2 8:9

Christine was my cousin, we haven’t seen each other in years but have been in contact on and off through the years.  Even though we hadn’t seen each in quite some time we had great memories to talk about.  She had a great sense of humor, I’m not sure everyone saw that.  Fun to be with and had the greatest smile.  I know she loved her family very much.  I am so sorry for her family, She will be missed by all of us.❤️🙏
