Christina Lynne Sweet, 43, passed away on February 22, 2017. Christy is survived by her loving parents, Thomas and Betsy Sweet, her sister Lisa Sweet Heck, her nephew Christopher James "CJ" Heck, and by many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends who loved her very much. She was preceded in death by her paternal grandparents, Weldon Earl "Wes" and Miriam Sweet, her maternal grandparents, Samuel and Jeanne Saint, and by her special angel, her 5-year-old nephew Kai Samuel Gonzalez, who was waiting eagerly to welcome her to heaven.

My heart is so heavy and I am so terribly saddened by the loss of my beautiful, tenderhearted and loving niece CHRISTI SWEET. CHRISTI will always hold a special place in my heart. When my son JEFFREY ELDRIDGE died unexpectedly almost ten years ago, CH wrote me four of the most beautiful, tender and loving letters of encouragement. 41/2 years later when I again suffered the loss of a son, JONATHON ELDRIDGE, CHRISTI once again sent me several letters and called me several times to check up on me. I don't believe I ever even told you, guys about your daughter's kindness to me, Tom and Betsy. I am so sorry I didn't .She was so very special to me and I will Miss her Kindness and love and her beauty. I know at this moment6 Christi is sitting at the right hand of our LORD JESUS along with her precious nephew KAI and two cousins, my cherished sons , who loved her so very much when all three of them where still of this world. Oh, my dear brother Tom and dear sister Betsy and precious niece Lisa, How my heart aches for you and for me. I am so filled with sorrow and so brokenhearted for all of our loss.

Christi was so very special and I loved her so very much. I am so very sorry.
With so much love,
Your sister (and Aunt)

Dear Betsy, Tom and family,

The news of Christie's passing was shared with me by Haley (Connelly). My heart aches for all of you during this very sad time. Indeed I am having trouble finding comforting words to share with you for this "out of order loss."

Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you. I will hope that happy memories will be a comfort to all of you.

Warmest regards,

Tom and Betsy.

I am so, so for your loss. I don't know if Christy spoke of me through the years, but I would think that she had. Since 1993 she has been one of my dearest friends. Ironically, since 1994, we have not lived in the same city. That is testimony to the magnificence that was your daughter. Outside of my wife and my children, Christy was the person closest to my heart. I was so saddened and shocked when I heard of her passing. However, the pain I am experiencing is nothing compared to what you are going through. I again am so sorry for your loss. I apologize in advance for this inquiry, but I don't know what happened. If there is any way someone can inform me, I am desperately seeking closure. I apologize again, and extend my condolences again. I loved Christy like a sister, and just really wish to understand.
