Christa was born
with a rare kidney disease; through her trials she became a brave, courageous
fighter. She survived out of sheer will and determination for 25 years. She was a very smart girl, full of wit and
creativity. She enjoyed strong hugs and
kind words. Her story is one of a kind;
her trials and defeats are second to none.
She loved horses, the beach and, when she was younger, imitating horses
on the beach. She is deeply loved and
will long be remembered.
We miss her so
much. It takes a conscious effort to
visualize Christa at peace, free of pain and riding her Arabian horse on a
sandy beach. For Christa we can rejoice,
but we grieve over all we had planned .
. . and those days that will never be.
We are grateful our last days were loving times, with all the hurts of
the past put to rest. She was blessed to
have all of her relationships in order, all the negatives erased, ready to go
on to eternity, surrounded by many who loved and cared for her.
If I have learned
anything over these past weeks from this loss - I hope to live each day to the
fullest and spread kindnesses to those lives I touch. I wish for all of you love and gratitude for
your families and abundant blessing. I
hope more balance will come into my life as I let go of the non-essentials and
focus on the most important aspects of living, caring, and loving.
