It had been a very sad week for our family, neighborhood and church family that came to an end yesterday morning when we learned of the passing of our sweet neighbor and friend. 

She was 27 and had been fighting lung cancer for almost two years.  
I hate cancer.  

Christina was just a light to everyone she came in contact with.  She was always so positive, so upbeat, she had a great laugh and you felt like you were her best friend when you were with her.  

She also loved music and was my daughters' piano teacher over the past year and a half.  I am so grateful that she shared that gift! 

Lauren is determined to have me find another teacher quickly for her because "Miss Christina wants me to keep playing and I know she will be able to hear me.

She leaves behind her husband and darling five year old son.  It's just heartbreaking. 
You can read more about her story here
I hope I have a good week - everything I make this week I plan on donating to their family. 
Please help by donating and sharing this link if you feel it is something you can do.

  1. So sorry to hear about your friend. I will keep her family in my prayers! :(

  2. Ahh... This breaks my heart! I am sorry! You must be LDS? I am as well. Grateful that her family has the knowledge that they will see her again.

  3. I am LDS! I cannot imagine having a loved one or friend pass away without knowing that I would be with them again someday!
