In Memory of Kristin Kay Smith, 10/1/1986 – 12/29/2000

Tonight was a night when my memory of Kristin was especially fresh, and therefore, her absence especially heartfelt. These emotions were sparked as I was busily researching a topic on the internet that I have wanted to understand more fully for many years. As my comprehension of this topic began to take shape, my excitement and desire to discuss with someone what I was discovering grew accordingly. That’s when Kristin popped into my mind. She had such an extraordinary passion for someone her age to learn about the world around her. She was always immersed in a book, analyzing, solving. I believe she would have welcomed Uncle Rich’s lecture about a topic that most kids her age would likely roll their eyes at. Of course, the reality is that Kristin is now learning at the feet of the Master, so her understanding of the universe far exceeds anything that my little peabrain could contribute! We’ll have some catching up to when we join her, but I’m confident she will enjoy teaching and showing us “the ropes.”
