Hi All NWKite,

The pouring out of love to Christina and her family from our kite community is overwhelming. This along with what is done with the KB4C really shows what kind of bond we all have.

Surfers form a circle in the water and join hands when one of their own rides the ultimate wave. Does anyone have ideas on what we could do to honor Christina.

The Celebration at the Hotel and the Reception at 3 Rivers are good starters.


Dear Friends,
Christina's Celebration of Life gathering will occur Thursday, December 18th at 3:30pm. The location is the Columbia Gorge Hotel 4000 Westcliff Drive, Hood River, OR 97031. It is not a huge space but felt to be a great match for Christina. There will be a reception following at Three Rivers Restaurant. Please note that more information will be posted on this website regarding opportunities to give towards the spirit of Christina. Thank you so much....hugs to all, Marge

There have been two memorial funds created in Christina's name

First, you can donate to a fund using PayPal that will be used to create a memorial park bench at Waterfront Park in Hood River. Francois Pelletier set up this fund, you can donate directly using PayPal by sending money to pelletier@gorge.net on PayPal

The Christina Bockius Memorial Bench
http://www.paypal.com
(select "Send Money", enter "pelletier@gorge.net" for "To" email)

Second you can donate to the Kinder Kunstler Christina Bockius Fund which will support future art education opportunities for children in Hood River. All donations are tax deductible. More information is available here:

Just got back from Christina's Life Celebration. There was a great turn out. It was great to hear all the stories and the consistant message of living life to the fullest and truly being happy. There were many photos and in most, she had a big smile or was laughing. God bless her family and all those who loved her.

Have a shot of Yager tonight in her honor. I certainly will.

Mel
