Celebration of Life Program Booklets


The PDF of the program books utilized at Christi's funeral home visitation and funeral mass is included here. I'm certain many never saw one and they were indeed an absolutely lovely tribute to her life. Eric has warned me, due to the pictures and graphics this is a rather large file and should only be downloaded if you have a high-speed Internet connection.

Thank you for sharing the Memory Book. It's simply beautiful (if such a thing can be beautiful that is).

Praying for you always- I love you,
Heather

Thank you for sharing, this is so beautiful! The 19th is my mom's birthday, so while celebrating, I also celebrate Christi, in my mind, by thinking of all of the wonderful things she has done in her little life! She surely must be making God and all of His angels very happy in Heaven, spreading that sunshine she was always full of! Thinking of all of you!

Angela,

Thank you for sharing the Christi's program book. I knew she was an amazing little girl - but that book just confirmed it even more to me.

Not a day goes by that I don't think of all of you or Christi. I live in Ohio, and we don't know each other, but if I ever see you I will say hello.

God Bless,

One year ago, your entire town came out to say good-bye to its angel, your daughter; the rest of the world said good-bye through your blog. All of us, in disbelief, thought the entire thing was a terrible nightmare.

One year later, we still can't believe it's true. We are waiting to wake up. Your daughter lived an amazing life. Somehow, you kept cancer away from her, even as it devoured her. Her school survey "goal for this year" read: "to get better at spelling". It was as if you nurtured her spirit so much, that it never occurred to her to write "to be cured from cancer". Cancer was just a tiny bit of her reality. It never defined her, or her goals. She stayed so true to herself with her love of art, theater, dance, math, science, learning of any kind, animals, friends and family. Through her memorial foundation, you are continuing her legacy of feeding the soul, nurturing the spirit; because, as Christi proved time and time again, the soul can never be cancerous, the spirit will never be diseased. It is eternal and perfectly whole at all times.

Our family has committed ourselves to living as your family, and your daughter in particular, has taught us to live. We are determined, now more than ever, to keep that little girl alive.

Thank you for sharing this, Angela. I'm sure the rest of us who couldn't be there in person treasure the opportunity to share as much of Christi's life as possible and you are always so gracious in providing us with such lovely reminders of one of life's truly special gifts.

I'd just like to let people out there with slower internet connections know that it is possible to retrieve the pdf file with minimal fuss. The file is between 3mb-4mb and downloaded quite comfortably on my dial-up which only connects at half speed anyway. Sure, it takes a bit of time and patience, but isn't that what Christi has taught us?

May your family find some comfort in knowing how many people your precious child touched, in person and thru the internet. Very few people touch so many other's or have the impact of changing their prospective/outlook on life and what is truly important. One cannot truly understand what purpose God has for any of us, Christi's purpose may have been to impact other's and bring them closer to God.

May God continue to Bless your family and provide strenght to continue on in life's journey.

The program booklets were such a wonderful tribute, thank you for sharing!! I didn't know if I had high speed internet or not but since it only took 2 seconds to upload I imagine I must have high speed internet- thanks to Christi I now know!
