Dearest Raap Family,Karen and I are heartbroken to hear what happened. Chrissy and Julie were such dear childhood friends and we will forever keep her in our hearts and memories. I remember such fond times with Chrissy playing Miss America, catching turtles and painting our names on their shells, swimming off the docks, boat ride adventures, Tri-ominos, birthdays, softball games, sleepovers and just enjoying being a kid. She was the most gentle soul, always kind and such a happy, giggly, carefree child. Her beautiful spirit will live on in our hearts. Sending you all our love and support during this unimaginable tragedy. Jennie & Karin (Matuszak)

May our beautiful daughter and the best of both of us, be at peace and rest. She worked so hard to better her life for her children. She was always tired but yet she made time for us and any one who needed her. She was the most loveable and giving person. We are so proud of all she accomplished and what a wonderful ,giving and compassionate person she was. She does not have to be afraid anymore because she is resting in God's arms now. We will always love her and he children. We thank all who have donated.

Christina was a dear friend, coworker and an amazing woman. You are correct she was superwoman. She was a positive person and her quirky contagious smile made me smile in return. We had plans for next week, next month, this summer etc. she was up for anything. "you want to try this?' Her answer if she could fit it into her calendar was .. yes!" She was horrible at karaoke but didn't care and got up there anyway. ... great memories. She was making her own path and building her own life. She was becoming confident. She loved her children and her family. Proud of getting out on her own. We were proud of her too. She was loved by so so many and will not be forgotten.My dear friend, I will never stop thinking about you. Thank you God for allowing us to meet and share even al little time together.
