    Life is crazy, but I always love the reminder of how Kristin was able to keep up a crazy pace but also stop to enjoy life. Thinking of everyone who keeps Kristin’s memory in their hearts!

    I am so sorry for the loss of this beautiful young lady. You are in my thoughts and prayers always. I lost my only child at the age of 16 during open heart surgery almost 30 years ago now. Seems like only yesterday

    Remembering our sweet Kristin on her birthday. 2 of her cousins are starting rehearsals to be “party parents” in the Nutcracker for a friend’s dance studio performance. It made me think of amazing Kristin and how much she loved performing. I never got to watch her in the Nutcracker but I am sure it was incredible.

    Wow almost 22 years since you’ve were taken away from us. It’s been a long time I know I haven’t said much all these years but don’t forget I haven’t forgotten you miss all the fun we use to have I tell my daughters that you were the one who got me into horses lol. Life’s jus been hard with my mom having brain cancer and the other one having Dementia i myself haven’t been doing that well myself but im still here and still think of you of your mom and of your sister got a feeling I’ll see you again sometime 💞

    We celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary a few days ago and watched our wedding video. Beautiful Kristin was one of our flower girls and we loved watching her twirling on the dance floor. Such sweet memories of her artistic and beautiful spirit. She will never be forgotten!

  7. Aunt S Says:

    Beautiful KK, your memory lives on in all of us and we think you’d be really proud of the special little girl who is traveling in your KU footsteps. Hugs to Taryn.

    We got to celebrate Kristin’s birthday this year in such a beautiful setting watching a friend dance a lovely ballet. It reminded me of Kristin’s talent and love for performing. The years have passed, but we still think of our amazing KK!

  9. Julie Christy Says:

    Taryn-So sorry for your loss of a beautiful child. I was touched by reading about Kristin and reading some of her poetry.

  10. hopeinutah Says:

    Thinking of KK today. Her love for artistic things of all kinds, her love for her family and friends and her love for life drew many to her. So very thankful she also had a love for Jesus and had a relationship with Him. That brings comfort to many on this Remembrance Day. We have hope and confidence that we will see her again!

  11. Aunt S Says:

    I don’t want this day to pass without acknowledging Kristin’s birthday, a day that many of us will never forget, but reading back on the last few posts has suddenly put a lump in my throat and so many emotions in my head that I cannot gather my thoughts clearly. Let’s just leave it at this… today, we mourn here on this earth, for distant and for recent loss, but we know Kristin is surrounded by amazing warmth and love this 2020 birthday. God, help us to endure and to be purposeful… until we meet again.

  12. hopeinutah Says:

    Kristen is forever in our hearts. We miss her passion and talent and know she would have been an amazing person to be around. So thankful for the comfort and hope we have, knowing that she is in the presence of her Lord and we will join her some day!

  13. Grandma Gigi and Grandpa Chuck Says:

    Today we would be celebrating 33 years with you and that is an awesome thought as I remember that the number 3 in the Bible represents the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. And so this leads me to picture you in the Golden City spending time with so many family members and friends who are also there. I know you are singing and dancing and that puts a smile on my face. The day will come when we can all be together and the pain of losing you will end. Thinking of all who are missing you right now and praying God’s comfort for them. Love,

    October 1st will ALWAYS be Kristin Kay Smith day for me! Our family had a fun get-together this past weekend and we celebrated many of our fall birthdays… cupcakes with shark fins and mermaid tails, chocolate and vanilla, buttercream and whipped… Taryn reminded me that she used to choose whipped for KK’s birthday cake icing. I remember those festive cakes, and Kristin’s squeals of joy at having her friends and family at her parties. Thinking about it all brings back so many wonderful memories… but the problem with remembering is that old feelings of sadness for the loss are also brought to the surface.

    Tonight, on the eve of Kristin’s birthday, JCB and I went to see the movie “Overcomer”. Yes, it was a school night. No, he didn’t get to bed till after 10 pm. And sadly, yes, we were the only two people in the entire theater. Unfortunately, some people probably think they will lose “cool” points by going to such a movie, but I can tell you that seeing that movie was absolutely the best gift I could have given myself in honor of Kristin’s birthday. You see, it was a reminder… people don’t have to be trapped in sadness and despair, fear and regret. We can overcome life’s obstacles. We can have hope, and with hope brings true peace. Our family knows that there is so much ahead for us. This earth is not our final home and, oh, the parties we will have when we are all together again!

    To Kristin’s loved ones… grab a cupcake today… go see the movie.

    hey Kristin, came on here to tell you that all these years have been rough I wish I could have gone in your place, you were the strong brave smart and talented young women. I wanted to grow up to be just like u. but I guess the world had other plans. I have messed up so bad and I know if you were here u would know what to say. I think about u all the time and come on your page but don’t know what to say. My heart Is broken and cannot be repaired. When u died I turned off everything and I don’t know what to do. It seems like the harder I try to do right the worst off I am. Over the years I have grown and matured and thought about all I have done and I know u would be ashamed, I am so sorry. I never meant to hurt u or anyone else. You and I were the best and when Cheyenne came we got stronger. U r the best big sister anyone could ask for. You went over and beyond to try to teach me the life lessons I needed. I really wish that you were here to tell me what to do u always had the answers. I love you with all my heart and soul. I hope one day I can see you again. But until than I know u are always with me.

    As I sit here and work on writing my biography, I have caught myself reminiscing about the past. So many memories of you flood my mind and I find myself missing you and dreaming of what you are doing in heaven, now. Wishing I could feel your arms with the warm hugs you used to give. I love you dearly, and miss you always.

  17. Aunt S Says:

    Tonight is absolutely beautiful. Thick snow still covers the ground and trees, the crisp air smells pure and fresh, it is oddly quiet with the exception of water droplets falling to the ground from along the edges of the roofline, and the sky has a slight golden orange glow to it. Tonight feels like Heaven on earth in my southern Arizona back yard; an oasis of serenity that is often so hard to find in this bustling world. I’d love to bottle it up to enjoy it again and again. Tonight I remember a very special young lady who is loved by so many of us, and I thank God that my memories of Kristin surround me on a special night such as this, and I am at peace knowing that He holds her in his loving arms.

  18. hopeinutah Says:

    Thinking of Kristin not just today, but often. She was a graceful, talented and sweet young lady who made an impression on so many people. Her Oldham cousins would have loved sharing their Little Mermaid performance with her this February. 🙂 Praying for everyone wishing she were here today!

  19. Grandpa Chuck and Grandma Gigi Says:

    Kristin, this year we had a very quiet Christmas and I thought a lot about what you, your dad and other loved ones might be doing. Christmas Eve always reminds me of our last time with you when the Grandkids planned a program for the occasion and you sang so beautifully for us, and I can picture you singing in a heavenly choir. You are loved so much and missed so much.

  20. Grandpa Chuck and Grandma Gigi Says:

    Dear Kristin, Shortly after you left us a friend who had lost a grandchild told me that the raw pain never goes away and she was right. I’ve been thinking about you all day, wishing you were here so we could wish you a happy birthday in person. You spread joy and happiness everywhere you went and I know you are doing that today. We love and miss you so much.

  21. Aunt S Says:

    Aunt K and I were chatting on the phone on Sunday. The passages about “I have gone to prepare a place for you” and “In my Father’s house are many mansions” came up in conversation. I told her I envision that our heavenly home will be more like a condo or tiny house instead of a mansion. I mean… who needs spacious walk-in closets, spa bathrooms, gourmet kitchens or media rooms in heaven? I guess I’m getting to the age where I realize that the more you have, the more you have to clean! 🙂 Like Zork, I trust that curious Kristin has figured out all of heaven’s mysteries and I believe that she will be there with a smile to greet all of her loved ones and share what she has learned. Happy Birthday dear Kristin. Till we meet again, I love you.

    I am so sorry to hear that you lost your Angel. Blessings for all friends and family.
