So sorry to hear of your loss.  I did not know Christie but it sounds like she led a full and joy filled life.  In her picture she had a beautiful smile and a light in her eyes!  I am sure that the love of her family enriched her life beyond all expectations.  She is now in the company of God, smiling down on you all.  I will keep you all in my daily prayers.
