I was heartbroken to hear the news. Although I did not have the pleasure of knowing her or the family I feel the way I do imagining the pain you must all be feeling at losing a special child at such a young age. Sending all my love – Jane xoxoxo

Steve, my beloved Stepson from another point in time, when the world was young and you were such an amazing child, adored by your mighty big daddy: Captain 👩✈️ Joseph Leonard Mahne Jr. , who sadly passed away on June 7, 2002 (two days after his birthday), you learned, early on what deep abiding love was all about, and you fell in Love with Stacey, creating a child that was the best of the best of both of you. You couldn’t help but be grateful as you shared “Life’s Journey with Christina Lee” – (the same middle name as your dear mother and, you with the middle name of “Joseph” as your father).
You were a mighty little trio and a wonderful extended family and she now, with God’s deep abiding love has enveloped her in timeless peace and glory because she was, and always will be, His Miracle Gift to both of you.
God Bless your aching hearts but know there is the land of the living and the land of the dead, but the amazing “bridge” and what gives meaning is Love and as long as memory lasts she lives in all our Hearts.

My prayers and heart are with you during this difficult time. I am praying for your strength and peace. Christina fought a good fight. God will comfort and keep you.
51Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, 52In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. 53For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. 54So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.” I Corinthians 15:51-54
Love and God bless you always!

Christina, you gave me such hope and joy when I first saw the video of you singing karaoke I must have played that a 100 times. I couldn’t believe that you were so talented and I actually knew your mom….. When I heard you were in the hospital, it was as though you were my family..I cried each day and each time your mom updated news on Facebook.. You, my dear, have had a lot of prayers said for you all around the world.. God gave this world a special gift when you were born…. And though it is hard to lose someone we love.. Everything we are and have in this life is truly God’s and He allows us to be stewards of The many blessings He gives us… It was God that chose to take you home.. and now it is up to us to be thankful for the time and or the influence you’ve had on every life that you’ve touched… May God continue to bless you Christina.. And may He hold your mother and father in His arms.. Showing them with comfort and strength at this time…
Stacey words are not available to tell you how sorry I am for your and Steve’s loss…. Good be with you..
