I was sad to hear about Christina at the Y the other day.!! She was such a joy to visit with when I saw her in the 🏊‍♀️ pool. She was a very caring dear friend to everyone ! We’re going to miss her!🙏

I was shocked and saddened to read about Christie's passing. She was such a gentle soul who was always smiling. She and I always greeted each other no matter where we'd run into each other. The one time we were at the YMCA to go swimming I was honored to take our picture together. That picture will always mean the world to me and now will get a print to frame it and put it on my wall. I am sorry for your loss. Heaven has gained another angel.

Our family used to live a few houses away from Christina and her family. My sons Justin Bell and Jordan Bell spent a lot of time with Christina and her sister playing for hours together. I loved her, she had such a gentle loving spirit and a great sense of humor. I remember the day she got contact lenses. She came over to show me, she was so proud. I said” Oh my gosh Christina, I didn’t realize you had such beautiful eyes”, to which she replied “ I know,they are very beautiful,that’s why I wanted contact lenses so everyone could see my beautiful eyes” Heaven got a very special “Angel”. Rest In Peace Christina, the Bell Family will never forget you.
