Kristina was a sweet soul that I knew through the Big Brothers Big Sisters program. I know that her and her Big Sister were lifelong friends so that says a lot about the kindness Kristina held. I am so very sad to hear of her passing and spread my love and well wishes to her family as they get through this sorrowful time.

I will always love you for what we did together, and also for what we went through together too. It was alot, so we was pretty tough in our strength of love. We seemed to have went diff ways at the end that we only talked to make sure we each was alright and eating good and all that. U would send me random messages telling me u loved me and u were gonna get me back, and i read them over and over thinking u gonna come thru the door any second. I am gonna remember everything we had went through, and what u said to me the last time we spoke on snapchat and thats that u would see me soon, and that u was so proud of me for what i am doing. I will say that u was the single most loving and easygoing person in the world and you bet money that i will never find another Kristina Marie on earth like u. Love you with all i got inside my soul.
