I remember Kristin publishing her poetry and other writing projects in book form for us all to
read and enjoy. I was so impressed with her talents. How exciting it is to see her cousin,
Josiah developing his writing ability now as well. Maybe some day, Josiah and Kristin will
publish a heavenly showcase of writing! 🙂

Happy Birthday memories to an amazing young lady!

I found myself thinking about you last night kristin. I was in my room by myself and I found myself with tears running down my face as I was supposed to be sleeping for school today. I was thinking about how happy we were with you around and maybe things would be different if you were still around, like maybe all 4 of us would still be a family instead of 4 people in different places. I wish I could say you would be sooooo proud of me. I dont think I can, i let you down in helping mom out and I’ll never forgive myself for it. I’ve hurt mom so bad I dont know what to do about it. I just wish she would listen to me and maybe for once believe me that I’m sorry for everything I have done in my life and to her. I just want our family back and things to be the way they were before you left us. I can’t believe your turnning 23!! I miss you so much and wish you were still here and maybe you could watch me graduate. Tell Abby, Daddy, Nathan, and Rita hi for me. I know you all are having a party in Heaven for your b-day. I’m supposed to be doing school so I better go but I just wanted to log on and say HAPPY BIRTHDAY KRISTIN!!!! I love you sis, keep smiling down on us and send some of your love down here, we definatly could use some right now!!! Miss you, Love you and I’ll never forget you!!!
your lil’ sis,

Hey Kristin I cant believe your 22 today!! I miss you so much it is hard to think of everything I got to do with you!! I wish Amber was here to celebrate with us. I wish you could have met our baby she is sure cute!! I think about you all the time and you come up often in our bible studies with my church. I wish you were still here, we all miss you so much. I know your having fun with your daddy and jesus. But I have a question could you send down some of your love we could really use some. I’ve been really busy lately and just got excepted into a group called breakdown, you would have liked it. I’ve also been really confused with the things around me so if you could tell Jesus I could use some answers right about now that would be great. I wish I could see your smiling face all the time. I really miss you Kristin, you left at the wrong time! Mom could really use you right now. We all could. All your cousins you wont meet until they come see you are sure cute!!! you remian in my prayers everynight and I see you in everything I do. But I could really use some answers on my homework right now!! Stop slacking start helping again!! lol I wish you were here to help me with all my school and I wish you were here to help us through everything the sister you wanted put us through. You were always really good at picking up the pieces and putting me back together. although you still are the missing piece. Well I think I’ll stop torturing you with all of this and get to bed. Love you sis!! =D Happy Birthday!!

Love your sister,
Cheyenne Kay

As I write this, Caleb is singing Twinkle Twinkle Little Star on that little Fisher-Price radio with the microphone that Haley had when she was little. You probably played with it too. This coming Friday night, I’m going to an observatory with some friends to look up at the night sky. I spent many evenings in the middle of my lawn looking upward when you first went home to Heaven. It made me feel close to you. You are always close to my heart.

Happy Bday KK-Doobeedoo!

Today Sienna and I got out a bunch of your pictures, in honor of your birthday. Sienna really likes the one of you when you were in the third grade. When she saw your smiling face she said “she’s nice”! Sienna asked me to get Jesus. She knows you are with Jesus so I guess she figures if Mama will get Jesus then there will be Kristin too! Sheメs been going around the house finding some toys to bring to you. She also said, “Kristin wants a strawberry/chocolate cake for her birthday in heaven”. This flavor is on her mind since this was her cake of choice on her recently-passed birthday; she thinks it would be perfect for you too!

We look forward to the greatest celebration ever…being with our Lord and loved ones in heaven.

Until then…

Aunt Laura and cousin Sienna

Dear Kristen,
Your mom is having a tough go of it in life right now. Could you reach down and give her a hug today?
I hope your birthday celebration with Jesus and your dad in attendance is fabuloso! Are you in the angel chorus?
With love,
