Please accept our heart felt condolence's for the families of Christi.  While Pat and I didn't know Christi personally, I worked with A.J. at Giant Food's Meat Department in Carlisle.

Please know that Christi will be greatly missed!  She was an amazing person that fought the fight very hard with such a positive outlook.  She touched the lives of many but was a very special person to our family.  She will always have a special place in our hearts.  I'm sure her meeting her Dad again in heaven made the angels sing even louder.  Our thoughts and prayers will continue strong for her family as they work through this difficult time in life.

So sorry for your loss. Mrs. Fraker was my teacher years ago and this was extremely heart breaking to hear. Thoughts and prayers to the family, her kind heart and passion for teaching will be missed.

May God bless the family while going through this situation. Her child-students, along with the parents of them will miss her dearly, however she has shown them all so many academic tools to use in life. My three children adored her tremendously, and she will always be remembered as she came across in life. Mrs. Fraker was a fantastic teacher, with an outstanding personality.

Bobbi Jo Weidner-Borrero 
Words cannot express how sorry I am about Christi's passing - what a beautiful soul. I know that she is safe and still loved. In my prayers for her I ran across this poem (in part):
"No death is theirs who visibly have left us. It is only we would make the parting real..not they Who wake to Life's bright glory.  Their progress toward reality is unstayed, and perhaps more free now they have seen by clearer day, No death is theirs. What their concerns, pursuits may be we know not.  But eternally God is (her) Life, and none can stray beyond His love and care..."

Anne Lauritzen
My love and prayers are with you all.  Christi has been such a blessing to so many lives that she touched. 
Sue Grubbs

Dianne Barrick
Dear Deb,
How sorry I am for your loss, a loss far deeper than i can ever imagine! The only consolation i can give in this most difficult time is that she knew Jesus and you know He has a place prepared for us! She is now in the arms of our Father feeling pain and suffering no more! You lived your life as an example of Gods love for us and I am honored to know you! I pray you find peace in the days to come and know you are in my thoughts always!
All my love,
Honey Punt

Sometimes life is a real bummer, and this is one of those times. A special young woman like Christi should not be taken so young. Prayers are sent your way from Carlisle & Calif (Sarah).Take care
Chet Romberger & Family
So sorry to hear of your loss.

Mike and Linda Eberly
The California Rombergers celebrated Christi's life in a place that we had so many wonderful memories of Christi and Sarah together; on the beach. We camped through the weekend and cried for the loss of such a wonderful friend and for the pain that so many are feeling now. We saw 3 amazing rainbows and 2 extraordinary sunsets and felt the joy of Christi's smile and beautiful personality.  We truly believe we will see her again, pain free, and as beautiful as we remember her. Our sincerest love and prayers.

Amy  & Sarah Romberger
Zach, Cole, Bonnie and A.J.- Thoughts and Prayers go out to you, in this time of loss.
Mike, Karry, Ashley and Matthew Weston
Both of my children had Ms. Fraker as their 5th grade teacher. The first time I met her she made a huge in pack in my life. I am sorry to see her go, but in the same sence she is in a better place. She never let the cancer define her nor let it over come her. She was an amazing person and I am glad I had the chance to meet the women she was and that she made a huge difference in my childrens life.

Catherin Detwiler 
Our thoughts are with you and your family Deb as you again go through this trying time. May God put his loving arms around you and your family. My son and daughter Sarah and Stephen remember Christy from CEFC and Sarah also went to Kutztown.

Pat and Bud "Warren" Knouse from CEFC
Debbie and entire family,
We were so very sorry to hear of your unimaginable loss.  Our hearts and prayers go out to each of you during this most difficult time and in the days, weeks and months ahead.  May God bless and keep each of you and may he shine his face upon you and give you peace.
In Christ's love.

Jane & Derek Jardine
Mrs. Harris, I am terribly sorry to hear of your loss.  My thoughts and prayers are with your family at this time.
