After a terribly short but extremely brave battle with cancer, Christina, 32, passed away peacefully on September 8, 2014, surrounded by love.

She will be missed but remembered with great joy every day by her husband Carlos, beautiful children Victoria (5) and Dylan (1), parents Lisa and Steve, step-parents Gary and Judi, brother Tommy and sister-in-law Alyssa, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins and dear friends.

Family was everything to Christina and she shared a special bond with each member as the eldest granddaughter, daughter, sibling, niece and cousin. Although her story ended far too soon, Christina lived a full and wonderful life - the one she dreamed of as a little girl.

She excelled at sports and school, married the man of her dreams at a fairytale wedding, created a beautiful home, flourished at work and most importantly was an incredible mother to Victoria and Dylan, the loves of her life.

Christina's family and friends will always be inspired by her fierce determination, unwavering optimism, profound loyalty, competitiveness and fiery spirit, which she demonstrated until her last days.

Memories of her dancing at weddings, devouring books, winning games of dominoes and tearing up at every joyous occasion will be cherished forever.
