I didn’t know Kristin for very long, but in the short time I knew her we got very close. I think of her quite often and actually wrote about her for my school essay. I will always remember the time I spent with her at camp. We stayed up after “lights-out” and wrote notes and giggled for hours. I still have some of the notes we wrote. They were mostly about books. Even now when I read a really good book, I think of her and wonder if she would have enjoyed it too. She was an amazing friend and I would never be able to fully elucidate to anyone how much I truly miss her. So today on her birthday, I think of her and remember what a great friend she was.

I also am praying for Taryn and family. I pray that your lives are blossoming and I especially think about you today. I love you all.

To Taryn, Family and all who love Kristin,

Thinking of you all today as we remember Kristin and the sweetness of what she brings to each life that she continues to touch. She is missed deeply and treasured in our hearts. May God continue to comfort you in the heartache of your loss. A special prayer and blessing to Taryn, Rich and Virginia as you touch my life. Love you all.

I have been thinking about you a lot today. I miss you so much. I can’t stop thinking about you when we sing Autumn Leaves in K*. I remember when you used to let me play with all of your My Little Ponies. I got some from Gabby for my birthday and I thought of you then, too. Happy Birthday. I wish you were here. I will love you for forever, Kiki!

I’ve been on this site a few times in the past 24 hours, wishing I could think of something profound to say to honor Kristin’s birthday. Fearing that it won’t come to me before the end of the day, I just want to say “I love you” to Kristin, the Smith family, and all who continue to feel her loss.

To Stephanie T. (9/14 post)…never feel like you need to apologize for the length of your note. Please know that all of your memories and comments are very precious to the members of Kristin’s family. Thanks!

And to Valerie R. (8/28 post)…God continues to bless your family! Glad to hear from you.
