Christine is an amazing, strong, and fierce woman. She was a young single mother for many years who worked at Kennecott Utah Copper Smelter to provide for her 2 children.

This woman was no stranger to hard work.
Her 2 proudest achievements were her children, Tony and Charo. They were her light when it was dark. Charo was her best friend they talked on the phone multiple times a day, shopping trips, lunch dates, vacations. Whenever Charo was having a bad day, she would call up her mom and her mom would brighten her day. Christine would call and sing it's a Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood to Charo and her grandson Eloy on their way to school.

"You never said I'm leaving, you never said goodbye. You were gone before we knew it, and only God knew why. A million times we needed you, a million times we cried. If love alone could have saved you, you never would have died. In life we loved you dearly, in death we love you still. In our hearts you hold a place that no one could ever fill. It broke our hearts to lose you, but you didn't go alone. For part of us went with you, the day God took you home." Author Unknown.
