Unfortunately, I never had the pleasure of Christine being in one of my Education classes at Hacc. However, some of my colleagues remembered her. The connection I have to Christine is I knew her sister Marian. She was a professor in my bay at Hacc in East 316. I enjoyed when Marian taught at Hacc, she was a wonderful colleague and friend. I wish to extend my sympathies to all of Christine's family, especially my former Hacc colleague Marian. I would have been proud to have taught Christine in my Education 110 class at Hacc, she sounds like a delight. Prayers that time and loved ones will help to heal the void left by her passing.
Love Karen Green

Prayers to all of Chris's family - we went to school together and recently reconnected on Facebook. She was the best of friends and I can say I never remember seeing her without a smile. If she was around - everyone was laughing and having a good time. She will be missed.

I did not know Christine personally, but I have seen the fruits of her years at Mom's House of Lancaster and am thankful for her part in this amazing ministry I am a part of! Without lovely people like herself, who give and pour into the lives of others, Mom's House would not be what it is today. Thank you, her family, for supporting her as she gave of her time, effort and love to those she came in contact with!

I was a mom at Mom's House when Christine was a teacher there. I remember Christine, I knew her by 'Ms. Chris'. She was sweet and dear to everyone. That experience transformed my family's life in so many ways. I finished high school, went on to college. My daughter is in her junior year of college at the University of Tampa for child psychology. It would be remiss of me if I didn't share a special memory of Christine. At the time, I am sure she didn't think that her actions would have made such an impact, but the level of kindness and love has stayed with me for 20 years.

I was 16, and my daughter was just weeks old when we started at Mom's House. I was a new guarded mom who was paranoid about how the world would treat my daughter because of my age. I don't know the exact day, but I remember the time was the end of the school year. My daughter, Hannah, would have been around nine months. I dropped her off at Mom's House so I could go to [high] school. Another Mom's House teacher pranced over to say, 'oh my goodness, can you believe it?' I replied with something like 'believe what?'… She informed me with glee Hannah had taken her first steps the day before, and I missed it. I had a meltdown right there in the classroom. Failure, guilt, and regret washed over me. I thought I was the only mother in history that missed such a crucial moment in their child's life. Ms. Chris came over, hugged me, and calmed me down. I don't remember what happened after that, but I went to school.

Typically, at the end of a school day, I would zip through Mom's House, scoop Hannah up and get on with the second part of our day. However, that day I was given instructions at the door to walk into the classroom, kneel, and wait. When I got to the doorway, I saw Hannah standing across the room, holding on to Ms. Chris's hands. I remember, when Hannah saw me, she released her grip, and I threw out my arms simultaneously, and she took three whole steps before she got so excited she plopped down to crawled the rest of the way frantically to me.

I am so grateful Ms. Chris staged that moment for me. I would not have cared if Ms. Chris had Hannah practice walking all day, that moment was the first time I saw my daughter walk on her own, AND it was to come to me! The kindness behind this memory stuck with me; it led me to be there for other mothers. It's because of these influences that today, I am the Executive Director of Mom's House. I am grateful to have known Christine and have an impact on my family's life.
