I am not sure if you will remember me. I used to teach for Carol at KU before I got married over 8 years ago. I helped choreograph a dance number for one of Kristin’s pageants. I was browsing the internet today and came across the KU websight and was so shocked to her the news of sweet Kristin. She was such a fun and talented little girl when i worked with her. I remember joining KU just shortly after you had lost your husband and your grief was very new, and so the news of Kristin made my heart so heavy. From the sound of the websight you seem to have so many around you who love you and of course, most importantly, your faith in Christ and His promise to carry you through. I just wanted to tell you that I will be praying for you and Amber and Cheyenne, and all your extended family. And that I am proud of the statement of faith that this websights shares with those who may be facing loss and grief; That you, in your deepest loss, can extend out a blessing to others is a really a mark of great strength and character in Christ.

In His love,
Kellie (Barrera) Avery
