I met Christine in 1988 at the Waco Tribune Herald Classified Ads. I was 19 years old, newly married (3 months) and she took me under her wing. Showed me the ropes. Gave me marriage advice and her famous Pumpkin bread recipe along with the coffee cans to make them in! I still have that recipe in her handwriting. I make it all the time and think of her every single time. She lived a long fulfilling life yet it's never easy to say goodbye. My love and sympathy to.the family. Anita Lemmon
