i did not know her like i wanted to,
but she was better than many people i have known.
she may not have been my family,
but she was more important that i could have expected.
she was important to my best friend,
so that made her important to me with time.
she died bringing a beatiful life into the world,
and that's what makes her passing so excruciating.
christina was far from perfect,
but i have never become so close to someone that wasn't family.
rest in peace, you beautiful soul.
