Thank you for the comment, Sandy. If there's one thing I've learned about Plum since I started covering it, it's that people really do come together to help their neighbors in need.

My sister was an amazing, loving, caring person. Her world revolved around her children and her family. I am so sad to know I will never see her smile or hear her laugh again. So sad too that yet another drunk driver destroyed a family and took a life. So unfair, so wrong..., I will love you and miss you always, Debbie Konop Solko

The last I saw Christine was about 22 years ago. I am so sad to learn of her tragic passing. I, along with many others, know Christine as a Cal U PA graduate and little sister of our Phi Kappa Theta fraternity. We remember her as a fun loving person with a strong family bond and great sense of humor. My prayers go out to her entire family on their loss and continue to pray for a speedy recovery for her son. She will be our angel watching over us all and we will all be better people having known her. RIP-Don Cabrera
