Maria joined her husband two years later. This will be the first year that she, Dwight and their two older daughters will all ride together. Christiana always had a knack for bringing people together, her parents said. The nurses who treated her still call to check in with the family. Her friends from elementary school, now all about 20 years old, come by for visits. “She made her friends feel like the best friends but yet she had so many,” Dwight said. “She had an uplifting spirit. She had a bright spirit.”.
