Christine Minshall Haynes, 92, passed away quietly on Monday, Jan. 9, 2012, surrounded by all of her children, at her home in Boca Grande.
This was as it should be. Recently asked her preference regarding her obituary, she said that she wanted it to state, simply, “She be gone...” This is classic Chris. However, dissuaded from this course by friends and family, who were convinced that a mere three words would not suffice:
