Christine was such a wonderful woman!! I cannot say enough wonderful things about her! She was so strong, loving, giving, understanding and a great cook! She could make a mean chicken fried steak!! And I wish I could replicate her sweet tea!
She was there for me when her Great Granddaughter, Brittany, was born and we were friends ever since. She became my "Mannaw", too!
I enjoyed listening to stores of her younger days and of her life with Bobby. And we enjoyed reminiscing about the good times we all had with Nell and family.
I love you Mannaw!!! I will miss visiting you and seeing your smiling face, but you will always be in my heart! Brittany and I were blessed to have you in our lives and I can't wait to see you again! ♥️♥️
