A huge thank you to all ya all (Christinaism) for pulling off a beautiful service for my sweet pea! Christina is at the top of the list of contributors to her own service, which exemplifies the gift giving nature of a beautiful beautiful mind, spirit, and soul. Special thanks to Vicki Bern, Mary Skillings, Lene' Garret, Karri Manning, and my super star son Cole for beautiful speeches. Christina kept me out of the planning activities, therefore I will just say thank you to all of you for loving support through your work, or just the thoughts, prayers, love, and laughter during her celebration. Christina's legacy will live on through all of us!
I am honor by both Michael and Leslie for being the first family to be the recipient of Christina's dying wish. Christina and I know first hand how difficult it is to accept help, and we learned over the years that it isn't just about us. Giving to others in need is therapeutic, and for me this campaign to raise funds in Christina's honor is helping me through this process.
Please consider donating to this fund Christina's Last Wish. This is the start of a bigger campaign, so please keep coming back to Christina's blog, and subscribe to get email updates. Also consider sharing her blog with family and friends. Jennifer Richardson from KEZI news out of Eugene is putting together an update to our interview last year. Once she tell me it is ready to air I'll post an update for the time and channel for the locals.
For those that were not able to Cole will post the videos to Christina's blog in the next few days.
