His ex sister in-law Cindy Hawke-Renn who previously met Christine while attended the Komisarjevsky trial, she said that she is jovial and so down to earth
“There’s been a huge change in him. He sees a reason to be happy again, a reason for joy in his life. He still has sad days, periods of sad days, but she helps him with that. She is uplifting, and it makes you want to be around her.”
She also recalled the time when she asked William about his future with Christine..
“So, when am I going to dance at your wedding?”
“He looked at me and said, ‘I don’t know, maybe next year sometime.’ I was like, ‘Yay! It felt good to be included, knowing that he really wanted us to meet her, that it was important to him that we knew what a wonderful person he thinks she is.”
