I’m sure we all felt bad over the tragic death of Christina Onassis at the age of 38. Many of her problems stemmed from the poverty she experienced at home as she was growing up. As her stepsister Henrietta Gelber commented:
“She lacked a sense of achievement, what she was striving for was just to be a normal human being with normal family relationships, which was virtually impossible in her situation. She had houses all over the world, but she never really had a home.”
-People Magazine, Dec. 5, 1988
