Daniel Michael was born in 1990, Bryanna Michaela in 1992, and finally Dennis Matthew in 1995. There was never a dull moment in the Goodine’s household. It is very common to hear Christina rooting on her children on the side lines of soccer games, hosting large get-togethers, vacationing up north at their beloved New Hampshire lake house.

Christina had a unique gift to recognize and appreciate others despite any of their differences and to make them feel loved and lifted by her presence. Her creative mind, brave and always up for a challenge personality, made her even more enjoyable to be around. Her kind heart and persevering nature allowed her to become a valued mentor to her children, and friends from every walk of life. Her generous heart filled her home with love, laughter, family and friends, including an attitude that her door was always open. She leaves her children with the knowledge that they were truly loved and that they added unconditional happiness to her life every day.
