Louis: Quite frequently, actually.

Question: When Christine commits suicide, there's a note that said something like "For my sister." My question is, why would the note say that? I know that Christine had a sister with some kind of condition but before that, Christine found out that Louis was responsible for Raoul's death and was very upset by it, so shouldn't the note have said something like, "For my Raoul" or "For Raoul"? Why was it for her sister? I'm confused by that part. Can someone please explain?

Answer: I believe the "for my sister" note referred to the jewelry she left behind, meaning to give it to her sister.
