Many fond memories of Christine who so warmly welcomed me to the Boydton community more than 40 years ago. My deepest sympathies to her family.

Aunt Christine was such a beautiful and loving person. Linda and I extend our sincere sympathy to entire family she left behind.
She showed her love for you all and you in turn blessed her with your love and care. Loving thoughts are with you through this time of sorrow and the days to come. I will always be so grateful to Christine as during the time that my mother died when I was only 6 months old she and with our "Granny" Wells helped my Dad to raise me from an infant to the time I was 5 years old. In memory and honor to a life well lived.

My deepest sympathy to her family as they each walk this path in life called grief. Just remember the Great Comforter is with you as you walk this path. Heaven has gained another angel who will add a beautiful voice to the heavenly choir. Christine was a beautiful person from deep within and it overflowed outside so all could see her dedication to any task she took a part in. She was a part of my life for many years and was a wonderful influence through her everyday living. She truly walked with God each day of her life and she did for others before doing for herself. Rest in peace they good and faithful servant.

God definitely gained another angel when he called Christine home. She was a really special lady.
May God be with each member of her family in the months ahead without her. Lots of love from my home
to yours. Barbara Hudson
