So we are always of good courage; we know that while we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord, for we walk by faith, not by sight.

Mary and family, we are very sorry for your loss. Christina is now with her dad, aunt and grandparents. May she Rest in Peace. The Hartzel family
So very sorry for your loss. Christina will always be remembered. Such a bright light and truly great person. It would be years since we’d see one another and we’d pick right up and talk like we’d just passed by one another walking down the hall. I expect that’s how it will be when we cross paths up above.
So sorry for Christina’s passing. I as a Fact bus driver had the pleasure of taking her to her appointments. I work with both her father and Grandfather in Maple Creek mines. Great family ????????????
We are so sorry. Hoping your fond memories will help you through your sad times.
We don’t have the words to say, but please know we are always here for you. We love your family.
Dave and Mary Jane
