CHRISTina you truly embody Christ….you loved with all your heart and followed that love where ever The Lord said. Seeing you and Todd over the years become a beautiful family of 2 to 4, is a blessing and an aspiration to all who live in our court. Hearing you and the children playing outside, a sweet treat for someone with no children is a memory we will treasure. We witnessed The Lord’s love flourishing before our eyes at the Marion’s home. The love over followed and it showed. So happy you guys got to make a cd with the kids on it, we love it. Kudos to you girlfriend for a life not wasted, for a life tried and true, and for a life fully devoted to family n community . Though tears are being shred down here; I know all of Heaven is ringing you with a celebration & cheer
Rest In Peace Beautiful Mommy,
Todd’s got it from here.

Christina was always such a sweetheart. I remember flying up to UCLA on my birthday weekend to celebrate Christina’s first baby shower. I didn’t have any qualms about it because she shared that even though her condition wasn’t favorable to her giving birth, she wanted children.
After I had arrived home, there was a long box on my front door and I wondered what it was. It was a dozen red roses in an orange-reddish vase from Christina and Todd. Christina wrote that she remembered my birthday and was grateful that I celebrated her baby shower with her.
Christina was thoughtful and sweet like that. I’ll never forget her kindness and generosity.
May she rest in peace.
