My prayers and sympathy to the whole family. I only met Christine once but during that time
she made me feel like I was a long time friend.

My sincere condolences to her extended family. Christine was a wonderful outgoing person. The last two years that we shared together were extremely happy times for two seniors past their prime.

Debbie, I'm so sorry for the loss of your beloved mother. My deepest condolences.

Please accept my deepest sympathy. I met your mother at a Weight Watcher's meeting and while we were talking we discovered she knew my mother from Robinson Thread. I am now a retired hairdresser but when I was working I came in and saw a Mrs. Alcorn in my column,it didn't ring a bell but when she came walking through the door with her big smile I was happy to see it was her. After I left work I was shopping at ACMoore and bumped into her. She always had a big smile on her face. I will always remember her and more so when I wear the scarf she made me many Christmases ago. God Bless Her and may she Rest in Peace.
