    I loved you since the day you were born. You were a ball of sunshine. Nana and DoDo were so delighted by you. I still see those deep dimples and beautiful smile. Aunties were absolutely in love with you. You gave Ma such joy when we needed it the most. I will love you forever baby sister. You know we called you the baby till you were about sixteen ..haha. Keep smiling and know you were loved.

    Your Big Sister Debbie

    You made so many people happy throughout the years. We are all going to miss you so much. I never got to thank you for the presents you sent me and my daughter Maddy. I’ll hold them dear forever. I remember when I was 5, you were the first person to give me real makeup at cape cod with summer there and it was my first favorite day. You were my mothers soul mate and now summer is mine, 6 months apart from each other. I know you’ll keep watch over your family and we all love and miss you very much. You touched a lot of hearts in your life and you were so beautiful and too young to go. I miss you very much. Thank you for all you’ve done for me growing up. Rest in peace.

    Love, Deanna

    I am so sorry to hear of Christina’s passing.. Please know that you are all in my thoughts. Please also find comfort in my belief that she is at peace with God and that he will take very good care of her. I have not seen Christina in many years but have very fond memories. My heart is very heavy today. RIP Christina. Beautiful Christina.

    I am so profoundly saddened to hear of Christina’s passing. Summer: we so appreciate you taking the time to reach out to Matt on facebook to let us know.
    Christina: I will always be grateful for all those daycare years – knowing that Matt and Jenna were safe and happy in your care during my work week. You always made them feel like part of your family. I feel sad that we lost touch over the last several years, but will always remember you as a good friend and feel lucky to have known you.
    Summer & Chasey: Your mother loved you dearly. Know that her grace and guidance will follow you through your life’s journey.
    Rest in Peace, Christina
