    We are utterly heartbroken to hear the news of Christine passing. She has been a part of our life for as long as Mom and Dad have known you. My Star life along with it’s passion was inspired by Christine. Never negative, always positive, I have looked up to her from the time I was a young girl. She gave me courage when I was discouraged, and happiness when there was sorrow but most of all, she gave me the greatest example of humanity at its best. Christine will be missed by all of us in our Families. I will continue to strive to be like her, but she has such big shoes to fill. Christine has left an indelible mark on our hearts and shall never be forgotten.
    With our deepest sympathy and heartfelt condolences,
