    Makes me so sad to hear of Christine's passing. What an icon she was in the community of Dolphin. She and Francis were always such good friends of my parents, Doris and Wilson Grifin. Thoughts go out to the family. RIP Christine.

    I am so sorry to hear about Christine. When I was a boy we sure had fun around Dolphin. She was always happy and kind and she thought I was funny. She always welcomed all of us boys. She lived a long life. I hope she had a peaceful journey and I know she has gone to the light of the love of her Almighty savior!! Sending peace and love to the family. Kell.

    Sorry to hear of Christines passing but sure she is in peace. I have to smile at many memories but the one that breaks me up was when Uncle had to explain how Christine broke his rib one night)

    Charles, Bettie & Family,
    I am sorry to hear of Christine's passing. She was a dear friend to my mom and she always talked about her with such fondness. I am sure they are catching up and enjoying the reunion. I know it leaves a void with us here, but we have the promise... praying for peace & comfort for you all during this difficult time.

    So sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with your family. I can only imagine the homecoming she is having with those who went before her. For sure they are having a big Brunswick stew in her honor.
    Love to all the cousins.
