    We are all very heavy hearted at the loss of our sweet lady..She sat in front of me at Church and always had a sweet word to say that could make anyones day better n she kept a throw on her bench to put around her shoulders n if it fell off during service we made sure we pulked it back up n covered her up..That throw was still in its place yesterday but Mrs. Christine had gone on to be with the Lord..She will be greatly missed..

    Mamaw Christine was such a wonderful lady. Missy called her mamaw Christine and me and Cathy followed suit and for us the name stuck. Always a lady, always a kind word for you, her passing will leave an empty space in many hearts. My sincere condolences to her entire family.

  8. Rev Robert Hatcher August 3, 2014

    I would like to share about what a great lady Ms Christine was not only to me but my family. She would tell me and my wife Tina how proud she was of her entire family, her church, and her community. She would all ways have the nicest things to say and would fill my heart with joy to be around her. I know that her family will miss this true saint just as my family and I will miss her, but I know that she is home with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I can truly say that heaven just got a little sweeter, because one of the sweetest lady’s that I have ever meet in my life went home.
