Shiloh and Mandi,
I am so sorry for your loss and ours. Christie was one of my classmates and we went to school together since jr high. With Steve and my brother, Ronnie, being such good friends, I was able to keep up with all you guys through Christie & Steve throughout the years. Please know that we loved her, and I’m so sorry I cannot be there to express this in person.

I love & miss you forever. I know you’re with the angels now-after all, you were an angel here on Earth. You’ve been a close, trustworthy, honest, secret keeping, secret sharing, funny, sarcastic, loving friend since our jr high years…I’ll never forget any of our time together. I loved our hours long talks in the wee hours of the morning since we were probably the only 2people awake-we shared the weird sleep pattern & insomnia. Who’s gonna fill your shoes?? Rest well, my dear sister-friend. I’m sure we’ll be together again some day. In the meantime, I know you’re reunited with Steve & y’all are in the loving arms of The Lord. My heart is still broken…

Will love and miss Christie & Steve forever. Will try and make it but up here in Denton the roads are very treacherous. May GOD be with the family and know they are in our prayers.

Susan McDaniel says:

Christie, you are a true original. When Ronn died you sent flowers with a very special card. When Steve died I gave that card back to you. It said ‘Friends Forever’. You are all now truly, friends forever.

Love and Peace,

Susan McDaniel

Mandi and Shiloh and all your grandchildren, I am so sorry for your loss. I was a classmate of Christie’s, from jr high through high school. She had a big heart and accepted friendship easily. She will certainly be missed by all who knew her, but she is definitely with your Dad and our Lord and her mother. God bless you all is my prayer.

Mike Moreland says:
