I will always miss you and your smile, all the times we spent together on the porch in jamestown talking about the day. We did not always agree and at times we would fight but I always loved you, you would run up to me and give me a hug if I wanted it or not. You were a good person you just had an horrible problem and it finally took you away from everyone. Always know you at times were looking for love, you had it, we all care, and I am sorry we could not save you from you, but I always loved you sometimes I just did not like your choices. Love your step Mom Lisa

christine was a person who lived her life by the moment and never hesitated to go forward, she was smart and full of life. It is sad that her life ended so soon, there is such tragedy in her passing. We often did not see eye to eye on alot of things but I did care about her. All she wanted was the siblings to get along and I am sorry I did not reach out to her, but there is obstacles that were hard to solve. I hope she finds peace and Mikey her son can overcome this tragedy. I spent much of my teenage years until I went to college with her and mikey, and we had many funny moments. She loved our younger sisters Annie and Savannah and would dote over them. Our family has a twenty year difference between the oldest and the youngest. There was the time she forgot to put break fluid in her car and it turned out there was no more red car, she came to the house and asked me to help. She was my sister even though at times she would be on my last nerve but I still loved her. She is the oldest of seven siblings, and as the oldest she would try to help everyone even if they did not want help, but she meant well. She attended and graduated from Edinboro University and had many accomplishments , and her most prized one was her son who she raised as a single mother until she got married last year. I feel so bad for Mikail, he is a good little dude, and if he was to go fishing Uncle Andrew knows all the good spots, ask Uncle Ed, we can bring Grandpa too.

Christine was my older sister, we lived accross the street from her and Mikey in Jamestown Ny and I saw her everyday. We would go sled riding on her hill and she would give us pop and candy when I was little. I remember her doing my hair and allowing my sister and me to watch movies that my parents would not. She always made me laugh. She was not the typical older sister most people have, probably because she is 20 years older and there is no sibling rivalry. She always gave us a big hug and a wet kiss on the cheek and would hold us until I hardly could breath. We had many memories together throughout the years of events that she participated in or was involved in that most people never expierence. I feel her life was very short and she will be sadly missed by all. I seen her diferently than her older siblings she was more like my cooky sister who had these crazy ideas and acted on them, never looking back just forward. BYE

When You were born I held you in my arms, I remember your fingers wrapped around mine, and I wondered what you would be. I loved you from the moment I saw you. It is so hard losing a child, you remember the first time they talked or when they finally learned to peddle a bike, all the firsts and all the dreams vanish like the wind. It puts an hole in your heart that cannot be filled. Christine Mary Lawrence was my first born child she was named after her grandmother, but I called her criss crosser. When she was a child she was my little girl she sat on my lap and watched cartoons and always said "I love you Daddy" I have three other daughters but none of them are so close or loving as criss crosser. She would be a phone call away if I needed anything. I will miss my Daddy's Little Girl
