Christie loved the Raiders, adored everything they stood for. And she was my friend.

God bless you Christie, I would like to think that we had met at the Black Hole tailgate that I was privileged enough to attend with three of my closest friends from Canada, four years ago on New Years Eve. One of the wonderful people that we met there was a lady who could have very well have been Christie, who was very proud to show us her Alzado tattoo on her ankle. I will never forget that moment, because my best friend who called me over to meet "Christie" and see her tattoo, was killed in a work-place accident a year later. Lenny had been after me for 20 years to make our Raider pilgrimage, and thank God we finally did. Thank you Monte for sharing this very personal, beautiful story.

Wow...she seemed like an a amazing girl. Cancer is a horrible thing, my family has had their bouts with it. Sorry for your loss Captain and wouldn't it be something if it was the same girl.

God Bless Christie and may she rest in peace. It's very sad to hear of any loss. One of my co-workers just passed from a brain tumor.
