I am deeply saddened by the news of Christine's passing. My deepest condolences to Christine's family. I worked with Christine at EMC and got to know her in my 10+ year there. During that time, Christine was kind and loving to everyone around, very thoughtful (always bringing homemade cake), and always looking out for everyone. I remember her fondly and she will surely be missed. May she rest in peace. Stay strong and know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. Sincerely, Ju Lim julienlim0@gmail.com
