Christina brought so much love, laughter, and joy to our lives and to all those around her. She had a mischievous sense of humor and a witty smile that captured the hearts of everyone who knew her. She had a love for music and loved to shake her bells for everyone to hear. She will be deeply missed by the many people who knew and loved her.
