Thank You, CariJo and All

CariJo, I just found the message that you wrote in Christin's guestbook. Thank you so much for your sweet words. It is so sweet of you to take the time to view her web site during the awful grief that you are experiencing.
This site has been such a comfort to us. We have had literally thousands of people viewing the site from all over the world. It gives us a certain comfort to know that others are getting to "know" Christin. One of the greatest fears of a parent who has lost a child, is that their child will be forgotten. This is one way that we can keep Christin's memory alive.
Thank you all who have visited her site and signed the book. It means a lot to us for you to take the time to do it.

RE: Thank You, CariJo and All

Yes. Your site definitely inspired us to build one for my brother, so that people can get to know him too. I found his binder from school in his trash can... well school had gotten out so I guess he just threw it away, ha... But inside were some things he had written for his English class that were quite staggering... he used him mother who he loved and missed for a subject. She (mom) knows how to write web pages so when she feels up to it, I'm sure she will. If you didn't see my comments, please check out my "Im new here" post, as I had some thoughts on the similarities between the tragedies.

How long after her death did it take to get the memorial website up and running?

RE: Thank You, CariJo and All

A friend of ours created the site for us. She was eager to do it right after Christin left, but I was hesitant to put our pictures and personal information in cyberspace. Actually, I think I finally consented about a year or so later and it was completed by two years after the accident. It took her a few months to complete it.
I know you all will feel really good to complete a site for your brother. Please let me know when it's done so that I can look at it.
