Today makes exactly seven days that God came for this beautiful soul, Krista, to relieve of her earthly life duties. It has taken me this long to get over the shock and to muster up the words to express how I really feel about this untimely and unexpected loss. Had I known just a few weeks ago when we shared one of her good strong hugs as we rode the elevator up, while she shared about her weekend in New York with her brother would be the very last one, I might have held on a little longer. I only had the privilege of hanging out with Krista a couple of times and those couple of times are quite memorable. We shared lots of laughs and memories that will be forever etched in my mind. I wish you were still here so I could ask you why you deleted those pictures from my phone during that one outing. LOL! I went back looking for those pictures the other day to share a memory and THEY ARE GONE! LOL! That is the vibrant and funny soul that she was and that radiant light will forever live on in our hearts. I pray that your dear family and closest friends can find some since of comfort in the memories that others are sharing about the wonderful, smart, funny, loving, and caring person that you were. May you enjoy your eternal rest in the place you were destined to be. Regretfully I cannot be there to celebrate her beautiful life on Saturday but the family is and will remain in my thoughts and prayers as you navigate this very difficult time. God Bless!

Krista was a beautiful woman. We grew up in the same neighborhood, Oakdale! I remember she was my manager when we worked at Food Lion. I pray for her family that God will take them thru this difficult time! RIP Krista

Dear Krista, what a wonderful Tar Heel you are — a bright light to all of us. Your energy and smile were so unique and so vibrant. That day we shared a foursome on the golf course — we were the only Tar Heels among a sea of Bulldogs and Yellow Jackets — that dazzling smile and energy made an old retiree wish I could have had you in some of the “too calm” meetings about RTP customers. Keep your clubs ready and when I see you again we will play another round. Thank you Krista for that personality that made EACH of feel better. See you at Kenan Stadium.

Krista was an amazing person. She was always willing to help no matter how big or small. She cared deeply and you could sense that because her spirit came through in whatever she did. I worked with Krista for the past 8 years and got to spend some really fun moments with her. But I wish I could have told her more how much I cared about her, and how awesome I thought she was. I will miss her , especially her laugh, her energy.

My prayers are with her family as they navigate this unimaginable loss.

Thank you for 26 great years of friendship! Even though at times we would go a while without seeing each other, when we did it was as though not a single day had gone by; staying up all night, talking like we did when we were teenagers. I will always be grateful for the bond we shared and to have been loved by you. I wish you had more time but I know you lived your life to the fullest. Not a day will go by that I will not think of you and your contagious laughter- love you always and forever

After all these years and the memories that we shared, we never got a single photo together. I can only explain that by knowing we were having too much fun to document it. Mannn, I wish I did now! Your presence and soul is one that will never be forgotten and has been imprinted on my heart forever. You brought nothing but amazing vibes and energy every where you went, carried life changing messages with you, and exemplified what a true friend really means. I am honored to have been in your presence and enjoyed those moments with you. Until next time.. Love you girl ❤️

I spent the last years with you always by my side figuratively and literally. It’s hard imagining my life moving on knowing that I can’t physically hear you or see you. I’m struggling to understand why. It feels like punishment but I’m grateful for the quality of our last moments together. Who knew? You were truly amazing and a true friend. I am going to miss looking over and seeing that smile. I love you, Krista!
