Praying for your All during this difficult time. Christi was such a sweet loving person with a Soul full of Love. She always had a smile on her face, and a while back I got to talk to her for a bit when she hit the messenger button by accident. It was good to catch up a few minutes. She will be so missed. May God bring you all comfort during this time. 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻
I am so sorry for your loss. You will be in my thoughts and prayers!
I am so sorry for your loss and my heart is broken. Christy was one of my best friends. We shared so many wonderful memories when our kids were little. She had called me right after Robert passed away about a month ago. She will be missed and I loved her. Judy and Sarah Young

Our deepest condolences to the Smyth family.
I don't know the hurt of losing a spouse or your significant love who stood by you through the good and bad. But I do know the hurt of losing parents and a daughter, it is a void that can't be filled except time.Even though we have been friends for such a short time and met through a puppy, I feel I too have a break in my heart. I remember the first time coming to your home, Christy never met a stranger, she asked if we were going to spend the night. This woman welcomed us with open arms into your home. From that day on I considered her my best friend. Christy and I bonded in a way I can't explain. It was like we had so many things in common to talk about candidly. She was an amazing woman and truly a very special person and friend.I will miss my friend and her smiling face. I feel she will not only be missed by myself, but others she had crossed paths within her lifetime.God, you have taken a special angel, we ask you care for her and her loving family.
Mr. & Mrs. Durham, Brandi, Lynette, Tammy, Mike, family & friends,I am heartbroken to hear about Christy. It has been many years since I’ve seen her, however, we shared a lot of wonderful times growing up & beyond. Life and other things happened and we lost contact with one another. I have many special memories with the entire Durham family. We’ll be praying for all🙏🏼Mr. & Mrs. Durham my heart hurts for you two so very bad.. it’s not suppose to be this way. I pray Gods protection over you both💙💖🙏🏼Kelle Wine Patterson
