Celebrating the life of Christine M. Colvin
Thank you for signing Christine M. Colvin's Guestbook
Marilyn and Lisa,
Your Mom (and my dear Aunt) was a special person that touched many lives. She never failed to give a positive and uplifting message to everyone she met. She never forgot a birthday, anniversary, or other special occasion. We love her very much and as Christians believe she is in a loving and caring place free from suffering.

My sincere condolences to the family of Christine M. Colvin. Death can disrupt the happiness and well being of a family. Some blame God for death, far from the Truth, as God considers death an enemy (1 Corinthians 15:26). Moving forward, you will continue to cherish her memories, while doing so, take comfort in Acts 24:15. Those resurrected will have everlasting life and never have to faith death again. https://www.jw.org./end/publications/books/dead-live-again-tract/dead-live-again/
