A Celebration of Christine’s Life will be held on Saturday, June 20, from 5 to 7 p.m. in the Newkirk-Palmer Funeral Home in North Canaan.
When a family loses their angel, and it’s time for her to go.
She leaves behind the loved ones and the friends she used to know.
To sail across the sea of life and meet the other side.
Where loved ones passed are waiting, dancing on the foamy tide.
What a magical journey sailing on the sea life must be, to open arms awaiting and the warmth of gentle breeze.
She leaves behind the burdens, no more sorrow should she bear, and gives to us her love to hold until we meet her there.
