    Jeannie, Ashley, and Family,
    I was saddened to hear about the passing of Cristian. I truly enjoyed getting to know him over the several years I worked with him in the pool. He was such a loving young man. He will truly be missed. He is now up in Heaven walking, talking, and dancing with Jesus. I love that mental picture of him :). May you find peace with your family over this holiday season.
    With Love,
    Holly Krosschell
