  5. To the family of Christine,
    Our hearts were broken when we heard Christine had passed. Such a beautiful woman and taken much too soon. We will miss her smile and so much more. We love you Christine! Curt and Melissa Betzler.

  6. Miss Christine. There are no words that can express the sadness that is felt in the knowledge of your passing. I will truly miss our many talks about God, the order of things, Craig, our respective kids, the Vikings and just life in general along with the many challenges that we are presented with during our time here. Yes, your wisdom and guidance will be missed my dearest friend. As you were and are one of the kindest people I have ever met, and this world will be a little darker without your ever present light to shine upon it. But in God’s own time, and by his Grace, we will see each other again. Yet until that time, I am going to miss you Christine…
    With much Love to you Christine, Always… B…

  7. Its been a month, and I miss you, sister… I miss knowing you had a presence on this earth, even though we didn’t see each other often for long periods of time. I miss our chats, sending each other stupid funny pictures, writing back and forth on one photo, talking about the shows we watched… and sitting on the phone for hours laughing and having heart to hearts until I was so tired I couldn’t keep my eyes open.
    My heart hurts when I realize that you’re actually gone and we won’t see any more of our silly messages and pictures… I won’t get to talk to you for 3 hours on the phone til my ear hurt… I took that all for granted.
    I went and saw you hours before you left this earth, feeling grateful that I could hold your hand, kiss your forehead and say goodbye. I love you, sister… I always have, and always will.
    Love always,

  8. Chris…. You and I went through so much over the years.. friends since we were 12, the 5 of us (the girls) had a lot of laughs and some tears.. We we’re always stronger together.. I forgive you, everything…I pray your soul flies.. love you..
