Krissy-I can’t believe it’s been seven years, it feels like just yesterday that we were doing a puzzle together in AB or playing cards together. I miss you more than you know and you’re always in my thoughts. I can’t believe your 21st Birthday was yesterday! It doesn’t seem too long ago that everyone was a fresh teenager. Take care and know that no one’s forgotten about you and no one ever will.

I am thinking of you and praying for you today. I can’t imagine Kristen being any more beautiful than she was here on earth, but in heaven she is SHINING! I would love to attend the birthday party that has been planned for her up there! Just think of the gorgeous music everyone will be dancing to…
With love,

I forget a lot of birthdays, but never October 1st. It was always such a special, fun-filled time especially when the kids were young. I think of all of you who visit this site and hope for God’s special blessings on you today. Kristin, you hold a special place in my heart… until we meet again.

October 1, 1986. What a happy day it was when we welcomed Kristin into our family!

Taryn, Amber, Cheyenne, and all our family, this morning dad and I were discussing some of the wonderful times we have all shared and what a blessing you are to us. We talked about how God has blessed our family through the years and given us comfort and hope in very difficult times, such as the loss of Kristin, Abby, and other loved ones. You are in our thoughts and prayers today and every day.

In Kristin’s own words, “Remember, God is with you, forever.”

Dad & Mom
