Aunt Christine was a wonderful loving person. Her passion to help others extended into not only her work but her whole life. I remember hearing of her adventures in Egypt with Uncle James around the dinner table at Oma's house and hoping I might find myself out in the world one day, inspired by Aunt Christine to get out of my comfort zone to experience life and people to the fullest.
~ Her loving Nephew, Brendan

Knowing Christina was truly an honor. Her smile and spirit would light up a room. Her team player mentality and integrity made her a pleasure to work with. Christina taught me many lessons, but the one that sticks is the true definition of strength. Christina’s strength was astounding...she never complained, always had a positive attitude, and would offer support to anyone in need. I will greatly miss my friend and colleague but know she is now at peace watching over us all.

Christine was the most loving and supportive person. She always delighted in my adventures and I delighted in her. I know she’ll be smiling down on me at my wedding, but more than anything I wish she and Oma could still come.

I will miss you so much Christine, my heart is broken and empty. My beloved friend, your sweet voice, may you rest in peace and be joined with your Mom, Dad and James. I had so much fun working with you years ago. I loved our conversations about our families and pets. I was so honored to attend your graduation celebration and proud of your education and work ethic. I'll never forget the delicious German meal your Mom made for us. We would even run into each other at the grocery store and couldn't stop talking. My deepest sympathy Alan, John and family. God bless her.. Sincerely, Jeanne

I miss my sister. She was someone who had a kind and generous heart and would readily laugh at my quirky jokes. I know the last few years were hard on her but she would never complain or say how life was unfair. Rest in Peace. Love John

While I only knew Chris a few months, I got to know her quite well since I would see her at least once a day for those six plus months. Chris was a wonderful woman who loved Alan, and Miss Lilly (her dog), dearly. I miss her dearly, and miss talking with her about the latest news, or the most recent book that she read.

I can't imagine the loss of a beloved spouse, I hope that you know that other's care and grieve as well. May you find comfort in the memories of travels you had both near and far to places, I hope to go one day. Christina way so instrumental in giving me email updates to keep me informed that if I needed additional continuing educational credits they were available, even while working at home she was thinking of us at work.

I was so fortunate to have Christina as part of my life both professionally and personally. She was passionate in all she did and a mentor and friend to many. Her passion for her work and her strength as she waged her battle against her disease were admirable and unforgettable.
Peace and blessings Christina. You are missed!
