  19. I worked with Cristina at Coop and while I didn’t know her well, she was the kind of person that touched everyone she met with that huge smile. We would take our breaks together and laugh as she struggled with her english. News of her passing spread thru the store and everyone was shocked and saddened. Cristina may the joy you brought to others be returned to you tenfold – Lori
