I don’t know how they could do that.” Christine, 64, added: “I still think about her every day. I don’t cry as much any more and the pain isn’t quite so bad..“The first 5 years were the worst.. Every year, it gets a little bit easier. I still miss her..I’ll never forget her..Other people forget, but you never do”...
