Last night I received a frantic call from a longtime team member, she needed me to come over to her house asap. As I was driving, a million things came to my mind, was she sick? was her apartment being broken into?
When I arrived, I heard the devastating news- my dearest friend Christine, former AvantGard team member and colleague, had suddenly died at the young age of 38. She began her spa career at AvantGard before embarking to fulfill her own dream. She was the owner of Destino Spa, located in Palo Alto.
We gathered at her husbands home in shock and disbelief. She had gone to New York with her mom for a long weekend to visit family.
It is hard to describe Christine in words, let me try- she was immensely generous, hard working, positive, energetic, her heart was full of love and her glass was never empty. She was the true friend you could count on. As I was reflecting and mourning today, the message was very clear- live each day as a gift, you might not have tomorrow.
Rest in peace Christine. I will forever miss you. Blanca
P.S This picture was taken the night of her death, happy and smiling with her brother.
