I will always remember how we first met. It was our Junior year in high school and a bunch of us were getting together to go sledding / tubing at “Little Mountain” on top of Emigration Canyon. My buddy, Rick Maw (seems we were always after the same girl ) invited Kris to go. There was one very large tube we were all jumping on to go down the trail, must have been 7 or 8 of us, including Rick Maw. Kris had not jumped on yet and so I told her to hurry and jump on so I could push off. She said, “there’s no room, do you just want to go on the other tube with me,” pointing at a small tube barely big enough for two. I hurried and pushed the big tube off and quickly grabbed the small tube. Kris hopped on and we never separated the rest of the day. The snowy trail was long, winding and bumpy, we were forced to hold on tight to each other (for dear life) in order to stay on the tube, often one of us on top of the other. I was quickly falling in love with this beautiful, fun spontaneous girl. After tubing we all went to a friend’s home nearby for hot chocolate. The car Kris and I hopped into was crowded and so she was forced to sit on my lap and our faces were pressed so close together that she gave me butterfly kisses (her eye lashes fluttering on my cheek) all the way there. I wondered if it was by accident or if she knew what she was doing? Nothing was said, but as it continued my heart was leaping out of my chest. OMG, I had never experienced butterfly kisses before. Later, she told me it was intentional and that’s how our love story began.
Kris, thank you for 1000s of unforgettable memories and for making my heart leap out of my chest again and again since that day. I will always love you and treasure our beautiful time together on this earth. Til we meet again ❤️

I kept trying to get Kris to come and be a CNA with me on 3W....I knew her personality was meant for greatness....she always said she was helping family too much and that it wouldn't work out. I continued to chat with her when I saw her and enjoy her kind sweet out going personality when I saw her on 3W.
I am so sad at her sudden death and how fast she was taken....may we all try to be more like Kris and cherish every minute we have with those we love.
All my love to her family..

I worked with her for a year in EVS at st marks. Even though I moved to a different department,
I was lucky enough to see her around work very frequently. She was always kind and giving of her time and smiles. She was always happy for others when good things happened to them. She is missed so much. Her being gone is very hard for those who knew. Some of us may never stop crying. I hope Kris knew how much she was loved.

Kris was so kind and loving. It was a joy working with her. She was always so willing to help out, and she lifted the spirits of those around her with her joyful countenance. She will be dearly missed by her St. Mark's family.

From the moment I met Kris, I loved her. I believe that was the experience everyone had with her. She was one of the most genuinely kind people I have ever met. She not only made St. Mark's shine through her hard work in EVS, but also through her sweet spirit, that could not be contained.
May her memory be eternal, and may The Comforter bring you peace.

Kristin was such an amazingly kind, caring and ray of sunshine in the hospital. She was a joy to work with and I will miss her smile and optimism greatly.
