It was Sunday night and we had just eaten a wonderful Easter dinner up in Shawnigan Lake with some family. As we drove down the dirt road from the farm we realized we had missed a text message from our friend so we slowed down to read it. I was in complete disbelief at first. I thought maybe my boyfriend Anthony had read it wrong.
Our beautiful friend Christine had died suddenly. I said, “No, you must be reading that wrong babe.” So we pulled over at the end of the dirt road.
Sure enough that’s what the text read so Anthony dialed our friend back. To our horror, it was true.
Our bright bubbly friend who was 7 months pregnant with her first child had a brain aneurysm and was gone. She was only 28 years old. The week has been quite blurry since the news hit, after the denial faded away and it actually started to feel real. We’ll never see her lovely face again. We’ll never dance with her and bust a move when the beat drops. We’ll never hear that cute little laugh. Her baby will never see this world. We lost a beautiful friend.
Goodbye my girl xox
May you and your son Kaz rest in paradise. We will always remember the fun times we had and your memory will live on forever. My heart goes out to Christine’s family and her loving boyfriend Kody.
