Christine was a great friend, a lover of animals, and a wonderful kind hearted person. If help was needed she was the first one there with advice, a kind word, a shoulder to cry on--whatever was needed. It's such an understatement to say she was loved and will be missed. Be at peace dear friend, until we meet again.

Christine, I know your big heart is continuing to grow and that you are busy offering comfort to the many in need here. I wish you'd been able to stay here longer, though. It's hard to lose a person who helps and inspires the way you did. You touched many people through your selfless commitment to helping dogs. I'm honored I got to know you.

Love you, Christine. Always will. Will always remember our wonderful trip to NC to visit the wolves. It was an adventure of laugher and happy memories. You have always offered guidance and wisdom to us and I will forever be grateful for our friendship.

Without exception, the volunteers at Shenandoah Shepherd Rescue are shocked and stunned, mourning the loss of Christine. She was a prolific foster, a mentor and held dear by many. She played a huge role in the success of our rescue, fostering over 100 dogs for us in the three years since we were founded. She was our first volunteer to take on a fospice, and could be counted on to take on some of the more difficult cases we had. If rescue meant getting in a car with little to no notice and driving hours and hours any any time, day or night to pick up a pregnant mama or a mama and recently delivered pups, she didn't think twice about it. If it meant crawling in the dirt to get under a truck to entice a dog out, she did it. If it meant getting bitten while working with a dog to gain it's trust, it didn't phase her. This happened often, because she had the uncanny ability to get any dog to love her in an astonishingly short period of time.

As the news of her loss spread among our team, stories about Christine surfaced. The time she went to a volunteers house she barely knew to help her with her personal dog who needed subcutaneous fluids. The time she showed up with a whole passel of puppies to help a grieving widow find the one to heal her. The time(s) she took our new fosters under her wing to show them which way was up. The (many) times she helped match up a family to just the right 8 week old puppy. She had a knack for that, no doubt. Those times she'd stop by to visit some of our alumni, just because she loved them all so much. She truly loved all of the dogs, each and every one.

Christine played a huge role in propelling the rescue to where we are now. We are all reeling from the news, and it is so hard to imagine what things look like for us without her. She cared about dogs, not so much about herself. While we will carry on, we will lopsided and unbalanced, missing one of our building blocks. Peace to you Christine. Thank you for everything.

Christine brought so much joy to so many lives (including the humans) through her personality, genuine spirit, humor and of course love for animals. She paired so many with the new members of their families. We will miss her dearly and her biweekly visits. Our pups, ( whom she raised from birth until we adopted them) would go nuts when she would come by as she was always their "birth mama". We enjoyed her company and the bond that we shared over the short 2 years that we knew her. If you didn't take the time to really know Christine's heart, you missed out on an amazing person. Words cannot express how much she will be missed. Our condolences to all that loved her as we will have holes in our hearts that can never be filled. Rest in peace our dear friend. I am sure your mother greeted you with open arms surrounded by all your beloved animals at the rainbow bridge.
