    Christine was such a sweet woman, and I know she loved her family more than anything. The last time I saw her she shared touching and fun stories about Bobby, Keith, Mary Beth and her grandkids. We laughed. She was happy and this is how I will remember her. Prayers for peace and comfort to the Price family. Bob and I love you all!
