Christine Rezotko Lindbloom meant the world to us. She was an amazing mother, wife, daughter, and friend. She made the
difference in everyone else’s lives that the rest of us should aspire to. She fought this battle the way she lived her life

Countless people have asked us over the course of the last year how they can help. Many have already helped out in so many ways.
Now we finally have a way to help her in a time of need, by donating to an educational fund for Josh and Ryan.
Christine played a large role in so many of our lives. Among those roles was the role of a teacher. But she didn’t just teach

matter how much pain she was in, you never saw her grimace. No matter how bleak the next week or next month may have appeared,
you never saw her without a smile. No matter how tired, run down, and sore her body may have been, she made sure her kids were
taken care of in every way.
Now, we can all use this lesson of selflessness to help Christine. Please consider giving anything you can to help. Frank is
going to have a lot to deal with in the coming months and years, and this is a way we can all help give him some small bit of
