Dear Friend

I worked with Christina at Foothills Hospital NICU for many years. We became good friends and we would shop together and cook. I remember we went to a Sting concert once and she thought Sting was cute, she told me she was going to marry a white man, lol, and so she did!  I lost contact with her over the years but thought of her often, she was fun to work with and a wonderful nurse. I loved her laugh and her charm.  Last week I thought of her more than ever and thought to myself, I need to try again.  So here I am and I am shocked. What a beautiful person she was and I know we shared a bond even though it was broken by time.  Rest in Peace, beautiful Christina

Dear Gerard:

In your time of mourning, thank you for taking the time to let us know of Christina’s passing. I will send a memorial notice to our staff, and include the link to the heartfelt obituary with the link to the foundation honouring her life and work.

I can hardly imagine the depth of your mourning,  and that of her family, losing such an amazing woman at such a young age. My heart and prayers are with you.

Sincere regards,
