She is predeceased by her father Pilar Bustillos, her maternal grandparents Inez Varela and Isabel Montez, her paternal grandparents Pilar Bustillos, Sr. and Maria Viva Montez; and Eric's grandparents, who Christina considered her in-laws, Jesus and Amelia Arzola.
As we say goodbye to our beloved mother, daughter, aunt, sister and friend, we leave behind some of our greatest moments that will now become our greatest memories. Christina will forever be in the hearts and souls of those she’d touched. As we part ways, we will be consumed with peace and happiness, as that was her last wish.
