I met Christy when her son married our niece Tonya.I was amazed at how she just naturally accepted me as if we had known each other for years. I got a kick out of her and enjoyed visiting with her. She really loved to talk about her kids and grandkids. She instilled her kindness and values in her son Greg and we are thankful for that everyday. Rest in peace Christy your work here is done.
