  1. I pray that the family of Christina find peace in knowing that she is no longer suffering and is in a better place. Christina was a fun loving proud wife and mother I know this because she was a very good friend of mine and spoke to her often and all she talked about was how happy and proud she was of her children and to have Marco in her life. Christina I love you lady what am i gonna do with out you girl? I wish so bad that I can call you right now. I know your in a better place and I want to thank you for being such a good friend and being there for me when I needed you the most even if we were 6 hours away from eachother. I will never forget all the good times we had together all the memories we have together as well... from playing charades in my living room when you busted out your Beyonce dance and us trying to break dance to sharing Thanksgiving with you and having you in NM for New Years. At that time I was having a difficult time in my life and she came down to stay with me I just wish I could have been there more often. I love you girl and miss you dearly

  6. To Christina and her entire familia,

    I didn't have the pleasure of knowing Chris but I'm a friend of her husband Marco, and I do know how much he loves her. I say loves, not loved, b/c I know that she will live-on forever in the hearts of everyone who did know her, and without a doubt, those who didn't get the chance, I wish now, that I had gotten to meet her b/c she sounds like a pretty amazing person. Christina always looked so very happy and glowing in her photos. I can't begin to imagine what you are all going through. I learned a long time ago how much FAMILY and friends mean to those from Peoria. I will always keep Christina and her family in my heart and thoughts. I'm very sorry for such a great loss. Much Love and Respect Always. -Tessa L. Castro

  10. Mom,
    Its been over a year and I still cant bring myself to except you're gone. I know I've done some crazy, stupid stuff and I've put you through hell for the 15 years I was with you. But momma I'm 17 and I miss you like I was 5. I miss the way you used to play with my hair to put me asleep or how you would hold me when I couldn't deal with this mess of a world we live in. I will forever be your baby girl and I will carry on the legacy you left behind because I have been told that "I'm just like my mom." you were the most beautiful person I'd even had the chance to see and damn, did I look up to everything you did. We fought a lit, yes, but we became best friends as I got older. You're a stubborn lady and apparently it is genetic but momma just know that I strive to be like you. I love you more than you'll ever know and I still cry myself to sleep at night knowing I cant be laying in your arms. Please stay close mommy.

    I love you more than anything (blowfish kisses!) goodnight,
    Brittany <3
