    We are deeply saddened at the loss of our long-time friend, Christina. She has always embraced life and good friends with a zest and engagement that was amazing and remarkably strong over many years. She will long remain in our memories and deep affection. Together, she and Mike were a remarkable couple and vital parts of our lives and this community. We miss them very much. Our prayers for comfort go to John and Thomas and their families.
