She died after spending her last two weeks in hospital being cared for by the wonderful staff at the Alexandria Unit in Dumfries.
Christine remained bright and outgoing till the very end, always showing interest in other people and their lives. Almost the last thing she said to me was to ask me to hold her hand and not let go, I didn't let go till after she had passed away.
Although the disease claimed her life it never, never beat her.
We will be saying a final goodbye to her on Monday 7th November at St Cuthberts Church in Kirkcudbright. The service will be at 1:30. St Cuthberts is the same church we renewed our wedding vows ( on the occasion of our 31st wedding anniversary ) in a fabulous white wedding ceremony just 28 days before she died.
