I am very sorry for what has happened to Christina and to your family. I am glad to know that one day very soon God will permanently do away with all the evil people on this earth and only those who conform to his righteous ways will be permitted to live here. Be assurred that God will likely remember your daughter and she will be resurrected back to live on this earth and never have to worry about crime, violence, sickness or pain. He has promised us this. He did not intend for all this evil to be on the earth. And, he will do away with it shortly and peace on earth will truly be here. Psm. 37:29.

I am just a stranger, but I know the agony of losing a child to violence. I doubt your hearts will ever be the same, I know mine will never be. This is such a sad, sad story. Somehow, only God knows, He can work all this together for good. If our heavenly Father can take the terrible event of the crucifixion and bring such good out of it, then surely he can create a pearl out of this.

Words cannot even come close in describing what kind of hell you've been through, and sometimes we cannot understand why God lets things like this happen. But they do. I just wanted to say that Christina & you have been in my thoughts and prayers often since her abduction.
I admire your strength in your faith and in your family. My hopes now are for your healing and that the police/FBI find the animals that murdered your beautiful, forever young, daughter, Christina. Rest assured that her memory will never die. Her death will not be in vain.
And until these men are brought to justice I hope that IF they have a conscience, which I doubt, that it will haunt them and not let them sleep at night. They will be punished in the next life if not in this one.
My best to you and your children. God Bless You ALL.

To: Michael, Alice, Jennifer, Michael, Jr. & Family
Our deepest sympahty for Christina's death. This time we gonna pull together, not only we want clean WATER and AIR in our invironment but we also want clean STREET/AREA from DRUGS because this kill our children, so many RAPIST/CRIMINALS around using this forbidden drugs. As community we look each other, look over our shoulders and sorroundings, neighbors, friends, relatives take extra careful. It is now happening closer to our home (area) and I bet these people watching us and soon they will take in control if we don't stop them. These rapist/criminals have family too, so please don't hesitate to call authorities if you suspect any suspicious activities going on. So please, please, please let's do this together, help each other and mothers please let's not take granted the welfare of our children, we all busy to make our living but we have to protect our children too. We had Polly Klaas and Christina Williams, their life was cut short and we don't want this to happen again to any of our children.
I am a single mother of three girls, they too are Fil-Am children, my heart bleed if this kind of crime will happened, I prayed for Polly and Christina's safe return. God always with us and I believe in my heart these individuals will soon be caught and be punish of the crime by killing Christina and dumped her body with no mercy. No death penalty because this is easy punishment, let's put them to life in prison no possibility of parole, lock them for good.
Again Alice sorrow is mine too, I went crazy when my dog was missing, he's back now, how much more for a child. Childrens are all mothers pride and joy, hope the family can go forward now that Christina is resting in peace and she's in God's hand that no one can ever hurt her again. I pray for her soul. God Bless the Williams!!!

My boyfriend first told me about Christina and her disappearance has saddened me greatly. After I read your page I thought of my close friend who was killed last year. This poem wass on her mass card, it made me think of your daughter.
I am home in heaven, dear ones;
Oh, so happy and so bright!
There is perfect joy and beauty
In this everlasting light.
All the pain and grief is over,
Every restless tossing passed;
I am now at peace forever,
Safely home in Heaven at last.
Did you wonder I so calmy
Trod the valley of the shade?
Oh! but Jesus' love illuminated
Every dark and fearful glade.
And he came himself to meet me
In that way so hard to tread;
And with Jesus' arm to lean on.
Could I have one doubt or dread?
Then you must not grieve so sorely,
For I love you dearly still:
Try to look beyond earth's shadows,
Pray to trust our father's Will.
There is work still waiting for you,
So you must not idly stand;
Do it now, while life remaineth-
You shall rest in Jesus' land.
When that work is all completed,
He will gently call you Home;
Oh, the rapture of that meeting,
Oh the joy to see you come!
I hope this brings you as much hope and happiness as it did for me in my time of grieving, my rayers are with your family.

I am greatly disappointed that this has happened to your daughter. I just hope that the world will realize what is happening and stop. I pray that this does not ever happen again. If this were to happen to me, I know that my Family would do the same for me. God Bless, and Take Care.

I am so very saddened to hear about the loss of Christina. I have followed this case from the start as I have three children of my own ages 17, 14, 12. I know how very painful it would be for me to lose one of them. I pray no one else has to go through what your family has been through. May God continue to guide you and give you strength and may Christina's memory live in all of us.

My family would like to express our deepest sorrow for the loss of your daughter. It is truly hard to loose someone at such a brutal manner. We just hope that the persons responsible for this crime will eventually be found and punished. The only consolation we get from this terrible event is that she is already in heaven looking after you.

I wrote a poem for Christina and your family. Mailed it to the 7 Grace Hopper Ave. Box 34 Monterey, CA. Hope that was proper address. Please let me know if I should send another copy. I hope this poem brings you some comfort. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
The loss of Christina has struck to the depths of our souls,tears stain many a cheek
That news we prayed would never come, grabbed our hearts and answers we all seek.
Why does God allow such tragedies to happen, those of little faith may ask
There is a purpose unto everything, love and forgiveness too many seem to lack.
Sadly, this world has become much too cold, man's isolation becoming ever too strong
Indifference affects so many, life is taken for granted and a child is so quickly gone.
The time has come to change our ways, God's strong message we all must heed
Make this Christina's Legacy, care for all God's children, whenever there is a need.
This requires no heroics, just willingness to help when "His Voice" does come your way
Together we will make a difference, just with the little things we can do or say.
Realization that we are "our brothers keeper" will honor the memory of those we've lost
Love and caring to ease our pain, learn this lesson well, for it came at a very great cost.
I believe we're all here for a reason, a special mission known only to the Lord up above
When our mission has been fulfilled, God guides us home on the wings of a dove.
Christina's mission was to remind us all how precious the gift of life truly is to each one
Give back more than we receive, from the dawn of each day to each setting of the sun.
We grieve deeply for her family's loss, to lose your child's the strongest pain to endure
Let us all make a vow to change for the better, Christina's memory forever assured.
So as you hug your loved ones tonight, be it your child, your family or good friend
Take a minute to think of Christina and the many others whose missions have ended.
Pray for a better tomorrow, to overcome all the pains of the past
Together we can make a difference and gain a loving world forever to last.
Good Bye Christina

I just wanted to share the following poem with your family during this tough time.
It helped me deal with the loss of my nephew a few years back:
Why God Takes Children
When God calls little children
to dwell with Him above,
We mortals sometimes question
the wisdom of His love.
Fo no heartache compares with,
the death of one small child,
Who does so much to make our world,
seem so wonderful and mild.
Perhaps God tires of calling
the aged to His fold.
So he picks a rosebud,
before it can grow old.
God knows how much we need them,
and so He takes but few,
To make the land of heaven,
more beautiful to view.
Believing this is difficult,
still somehow we much try,
The saddest word mankind knows
will always be Good-bye.
So when a little child departs,
we who are left behind,
Must realize God loves children.
ANGELS ARE HARD TO FIND.

Christina is in heaven and her spirit will live forever. We are also a military family living on Ft. Ord. We had our first child in May very close to Christina's birthday.
This tragedy has hit us hard. My daughter was not even a month old when Christina was abducted. I can't imagine the pain you felt and are still feeling. Your faith and strenghth are an example to us all.
Wherever the navy sends us you know Christina's story will follow. You will always be in our thoughts and prayers.

I have followed this tragic story from the beginning, and like all of your neighbors in the Monterey area, the country and the world, I have prayed for a miracle. I was devastated to discover that the miracle we hoped for did not come to pass.
However, another kind of miracle did occur. The strength, faith and love you and your family have shown throughout this tragedy is a miracle. It has inspired an entire community to come together in the name of your beautiful daughter. I am so very sorry for the pain that you have endured. However, please take some comfort in the fact that she is with God now. In addition, this tragedy has focused attention on a problem that our society has to address -- the safety of our children. We will never know why such terrible things happen. However, we have to have faith that God has a plan. Please know that you are not alone. The thoughts and prayers of the entire community are with you and your family.

Mike, Ate Alice, Michael and Jennifer,
I just want to thank you for sharing your angel-Christina- with all of us. We truly are touched by an angel.Many people from the hospital I work at are sending their thoughts and prayers. I received a few cards that I will bring when we come on Saturday (23rd). I am sending you this comment on one of the cards that I received.
*HER JOURNEY'S JUST BEGUN*
Don't think of her as gone away--
her journey's just begun,
life holds so many facet--
this earth is only one...
Just think of her as resting
from the sorrows and the tears
in a place of warmth and comfort
where there are no days and years.
Think how she must be wishing
that we could know today
how nothing but our sadness
can really pass away.
And think of her as living
in the hearts of those she touched...
for nothing loved is ever lost--
and she was loved so much.
All our love and prayers to each one of you. We will see you on the 23rd for the Memorial. Thank you again.

I am visiting my parents in TN this week to catch up and relax. As my Mom and I were coming home from the store there were twin girls (about 10 years old) out walking their dog on the street where my parents reside. My first thought was - oh God they could be abducted like Christina. This case has left its mark on me. In Christina's memory I will do all I can to keep children safe from the perverted animals in the world.

Dear Family of Christina,
I signed on here before, but I felt the need to write again.
Christina has touched me more than I can even comprehend.
There is absolutely no way I can know your pain, but I do
know you suffered the most incredible lose of your life,
there is no greater saddness.
I do not know how to explain the incredible saddness I
feel for you. And for me. I hope I don't sound selfish,
I have no right to feel this sad for a girl I never knew.
But Christina has never left my mind. From the
first day I learned of her disappearance, I felt
as if I knew her, just from seeing her picture, I knew
she was someone who made the world a better place.
She truly touched me (and the world) with her smile. Her
smile went far beyond the beauty of this world. Yes, she
was (is) a beautiful girl, but there was a kindness, a
sweetness in her eyes, and in her spirit.
That is the beauty that came to light, whenever I saw
a flyer with her picture, or an update on the news about
her. I have been very sad about her disappearence for all
this time. I have cried every day since the discovery of
But it is good that I (and so many others) are crying with
you about your beautiful daughter. I will always remember
Christina, the girl with the beautiful heart, beautiful
and kind. I always felt that she was a special person.
When I read about her love and care for animals, that
confirmed what I already knew. She is an angel. She truly
is with all of us forever... along with Polly Klaas.
It is comforting for me to know that Mark Klaas
has been helping you during this time. Please find comfort in
knowing that the work you have done, while trying to find
Christina, has already saved another child. You may never
know about it, but in your kind and loving way, you have
touched so very many hearts.
And there is a child who will be saved through Christina.
You have an incredible family, I am amazed and inspired by
you. Many people love you and your family so
very much, and you don't even know us. But please know we
ďWe are changed now. Not because she left us.
But because she touched us.Ē

I feel sorry for your family. I have experienced losing

are going through.I pray that she will come back one day so
you guys could share time together.

God will heal your pain and there will be joy. My grandaughters live in Preston Park, just off Imgin Rd. we see the sadness in their faces, and the warnings we give to becarefull out playing.

Dear Williams family,
Here in Yokosuka we are all very sad about what has
happened. When we found out during fourth period on Jan. 15,
I don't think you could go anywhere throughout the school
without seeing or hearing people crying. My friend and I
bought white roses and made a memorial for Christina by the
office of the school Christina once attended. That night I
looked at her picture and saw what a beautiful girl she was
and I began to feel sad. Then I reminded myself that she is
with God and I began to feel better. I just want you to
know that I am praying for you and I know Christina is watching

Dear Williams Family,
I have read many stories similar to yours, and yet it is always so apalling to see another. I work in a childrens Psychiatric hospital in Fla. I hear stories of abuse and neglect everyday. But to never know for so many months what happened,would be unimaginable. I have two children a 19 year old boy and a 10year old girl.I cannot even comprehend the pain and fear you must be feeling. I will think about you often and I will pray for your beautiful daughter everynight. Sincerely, Linda

I'm 17 and I don't know what it's like to lose a daughter but I pray that God will help you through it all and keep Christina close to his side. She's looking down on you now shielding your whole family with her wings. Morn the loss and celebrate her life and never forget that she's your guardian angel now and will always be close to your hearts

I have followed the dissapearance of your little girl as most of the country has. Every time I would here her name on a news cast I would run to the tv and turn it up, hoping they had found her alive. I am so sorry for your loss. Nothing I can say will make the pain any less, but you and your family our always in my prayers. Just thinking about Christina brings brigns tears to my eyes. I only hope you can find comfort in knowing she is now with God, safe from any harm. You are right, we must find a way to keep this from ever happening again. I only wish I had a solution. God Bless you.

I am so sorry for the tragic closure of your daughter's case. I was hoping that your daughter would be coming home soon. I was praying hard for that. Though what I have hoped for didn't happen, I know she is safe wherever she is in right now. She is and will be in my heart and mind forever. Because of what happened to her, I became more cautious. Not only that, I became more loving to all the people around me, especially my parents. I hope that justice will be served to the perpetrators of your daughter, Christina Marie. Though I may not know her personally, she has touched many lives, even my own life. She is truly a blessing not only to her family, but to all people all over the world as well. That's all I can say, and, God bless us all..

I am deeply sorry for your lose. When i heard the body was Christina's my heart dropped to the floor and i couldn't believe it and i didn't believe it. I had so much faith that she was still alive and i am so very sorry that it ended up this way. I hope we find the people who did this to her. I'm sorry!

I have prayed every day for Christina, since I heard of her disappearance. I still find it hard to believe that she will not be returning to her home and family. I am so sorry that my prayers were not answered. I am so sorry that you will never see her or hear her laugh again. I am so angry that someone took her and hurt her. My best friend was taken and murdered in 1988. Her name was Aimee. With the loss of your daughter and sister I remember my friend. The only hope that I have is that I know if it was me who was taken and hurt that I wouldn't want my fate to destroy the lives of my friends and family. Stay strong and stick together! You are very fortunate to have so many people caring about Christina and your family. I hope the killers are brought to justice but if they never are and you never know, please take my sincere advice and don't let them end your lives with vengence and hatred and curiousity. I say this because it almost ended my life. I still pray for your family every day.

Christina-the brightest light
Ther once was a star
Shinning the brightest light
Everyone looked upon it
To make it through the night.
There once was a little bird
Ready to take flight
She looked across the open skies
And began a journey called life.
There once was a girl with many dreams
And a bright future comming her way
But someone came and took the light
With her dreams just thrown away.
A great storm came and brought the dark
It poured the heaviest rain
But when the skies began to clear
The heavens spelled her name.
Christina flew into the clouds
With her heart so full of grace
She became an important angel of God
Who spreads joy to the human race.
Her light will always shine upon us
Telling us not to be scared
Because every storm will come to clear
After every night comes the day.
But to those who took the light away
Their souls shall burn in hell
Because the pain will never ease
Until justice rings its bell.
Rest in Peace, Christina Marie....
lovingly, Kim Junio, on behalf of all Christina's friends

Never before has a child influenced the world like your child did. Everyone in the world was so affected by this unfortunate incident. We never knew her but I can tell that from the moral support of society and from the way she touched people's hearts that she must have been an amazing person. I know that I have never felt even close to how you must be feeling, but I just wanted to slightly ease your pain by telling you that your daughter is in the arms of an angel. It is through tragedies like this that people stop the rush of their everyday lives and begin to appreciate what they really have. This is because most people do not realize what they have until it is gone. So, instead of racing through life we should slow down and savior the moments and memories that we once shared with the ones we loved. And with the memories we can help to keep their spirits alive and to help with the struggle without them. So, I give all of my love to your family and pray that somehow you will get through this.
With Much Love,

Upon hearing the news of your loss, I cried for some time because I had hoped for a better outcome for both your family and Christina. Even though I never knew her, I (and the world) could see how full of life she was only by a beaming smile she gave in photos. I hope that she is looking down upon you (and perhaps those that prayed for her safe return) with that same smile.

Although words can not describe the way I feel, I can only imagine the pain you guys are going through. I cried that night when they announced the news. I have never cried so much in my life. I don't have any kids, but I do take care of my youngest brother. To me, he is like a son. I get worried when it's late at night and I don't hear from him. Now I understand what my mother use to say to us, "When you have your own kids, you'll understand why little things worries your parents!" Christina and the whole family is in our prayers...

I have thought of your family often and I wish that I could somehow help ease your pain. I could never comprehend all that your family has endured, I think the majority of people in the surrounding area feel they know you and Christina. You have so much strength. You have brought so many familys closer together. I wanted to tell you that I am proud of you, and I hope that you can see just how many people are thinking of each member of your family and Christina. And to know that you are not alone. Please don't be afraid to reach out for the love and support that you need. Because it is all around you.

To the Williams family - I wish to express my deepest condolences and sincerest sympathy to all of you. When a child is abducted, abused or murdered life is taken away from all members of the family. I am hoping that the laws will change and punishment will be immediate and not after "3 strikes" you are out. These criminals needed to be punished as soon as possible and and as severly as possible to prevent them from getting back on the streets to harm another victim. I hope that through your efforts and Mr. Klaas' efforts these laws will be soon be changed and enforced.

Have never crossed
I feel as if I know you.
You were a young,
and BEAUTIFUL child,
Loved by many!!
You had your entire life
Ahead of you.
Filled with dreams,
That only those close to you knew.
You could have done anything
You wanted to.
You were taken from your family,
You will never know the number of people,
the number of families,
or the number of communities,
that your life has affected.
As you look down upon us,
know that you where
LOVED BY MANY!!!!

This is a song from Jewel that always brings me to tears thinking of Christina......it is my hope that one day I will be able to help bring the animals to justice when they are caught. I will be one of the first to start a letter writing campaign to those who have the power to convict. As the song says, My Hands are Small but I will never stop trying to assist your family....
If I could tell the world just one thing
It would be that weíre all OK
And not to worry Ďcause worry is wasteful
And useless in times like these
I wonít be made useless
I wonít be idle with despair
I will gather myself around my faith
For light does the darkness most fear
My hands are small, I know
But theyíre not yours, they are my own
And I am never broken
Poverty stole your golden shoes
But it didnít steal your laughter
And heartache came to visit me
But I knew it wasnít ever after
Weíll fight, not out of spite
For someone must stand up for whatís right
'Cause where thereís a man who has no voice
There ours shall go singing
My hands are small I know
But theyíre not yours, they are my own
And I am never broken
In the end only kindness matters
In the end only kindness matters
I will get down on my knees, and I will pray
My hands are small I know
But theyíre not yours, they are my own
And I am never broken
We are Godís eyes
We are Godís eyes
We are Godís eyes
We are Godís hands
