My deepest sympathies to Christine's family and friends. I met Christine in 2004 when she competed for Mrs. PA US. I was the director that year. I remember her as a beautiful, intelligent, loving person. May she rest in peace. God bless you Christine.

My deepest sympathy to you all. I have had the pleasure of knowing Christine since 2004 and I will greatly miss her. Her beautiful personality, positive helpful attitude and joking nature are some of her wonderful characteristics I had the opportunity to know . We met competing for Mrs. PA US and became instant friends. Over the years we kept in touch on & off, but she always helped me always find the perfect dress, swimsuit and interview attire for any upcoming competition. Sending you all love & prayers.
