Christa was a sweet friend from long ago in Piedmont. No matter where I ran into her over the years, Christa always welcomed me with a warm smile and heartfelt conversation. I extend my sincere sympathy to her caring family.

Keeping your family in my prayers. Aunt Christa was one of a kind and I loved talking with her at the hair salon in the recent years.

I’m so very sorry to hear this news about Christa. She was a lovely person. We hadn’t seen each other for years and just reconnected on Facebook recently. I will miss the fact that she is no longer with us here on earth, but will see her again in Heaven. My sincere condolences to the family also you are in my prayers.

Saddened and shocked to hear of Christa's passing. Working with her as her supervisor at FSU, she and I had a great relationship and understanding. She and I became good friends and the memories of her will stay with me. My condolences and prayers to Gary, Wendy and Jason. I know she will be missed but let the family memories give you peace.
