Christina was a bookworm since she was young and loved to read. This is a trait she inherited from her grandma, Betty. She was madly in love with Jeremiah Bennett and newly engaged since May 2012. Christina so dearly loved and enjoyed every moment she spent with his children, Mya and Abel, and would often share stories about their accomplishments. Friends and family frequently looked forward to hearing stories of the family’s fun-filled trips and adventures. Christina was just beginning to plan her wedding to Jeremiah scheduled for 2013.
Christina will be remembered by her bright and bubbly smile, brilliance, and funny personality. Although shy at times, those who knew her well know that she was full of life, very funny, wise beyond her years, and free of judgment. Never did she have an unkind word to say about anyone. Christina was taken from us far too early. Allow her smile to be forever stamped into your memory, her laughter to echo in the room next time you think of her, her love of reading to inspire you to next time you pick up a book. May her sweet, warm, loving nature forever touch your hearts.
