Christina was the strongest, most loving, patient, kind, and caring person. To know her was to love her. The sweetest person you would ever meet. She was a role model to many, a caregiver to anyone who was in her life, and a mother figure to all. She spent her entire life taking care of her kids, grandkids, and the children at the preschool where she taught. She was an Angel way before she left us. She was ” Practically Perfect in Every Way” and will be missed immensely by her children, family, and friends.
