The world has lost a loving daughter, a devoted
sister, a beautiful smile, a kind and loving
heart, a friend whose memory is forever engraved
on our hearts . . . a rose.
Christin graduated from Live Oak High School, Watson,
Louisiana in May 1996. She then enrolled at
Southeastern Louisiana University where she was
pursuing a major in Family and Consumer Sciences.
She was very creative and discovered, through oil
painting, a few months before her death, that she
had a great deal of artistic talent.
Christin had great love for her family, friends, her
school, and most of all, God. She was completing her

do it with a kind deed to
someone who needs it.
If you do all I have asked, I will live forever.

It would mean so much if you would take
just a moment to sign our guestbook
