    An angel among Angels. She began her year seeing the face of God. Ray and family, she will look upon you lovingly always. We will surely miss her delightful laughter and gentle ways. You all are in our prayers.

    Dear Stavneak Family, I’m so sorry to hear of your loss. I’ve known your family nearly all of my life, and Christine’s smile is what I remember most. She was always so sweet, and kind. She never forgot who I was, and was so kind to my children when I made sure to bring them trick-or-treating at her house. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.
