    My thoughts and prayers to Christie”s family. I worked with Christie at Range Area Vocational Supports. She was a wonderful lady-She got a kick out of the fact I was born in Arkansas. She always had a smile and a nice hug when I would see her at the ARC dances/dinners after I retired.—Leola Hey
