Dear Krista, I have not been able to come up with the right words to say on how I am feeling, I was up north, sitting on my boat, I could feel you all around me and I felt peace. I took this photo so I could always remember. I love you and miss you so much, Until we see each other again in Heaven, Love Aunt Debi

Dear Sharie - I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Please take comfort in knowing she is in a better place, without the constant battles she faced. I don't know how you continue on, but know that you have many many friends to rely on, or just listen. It is so easy to question God, but he is there for you. He just needed to help His angel and brought her home.

Dear Sharie and family,
We know the intense pain and anguish that you feel. Please know that with the passing of time the pain will ease. We hope that precious memories of Krista will bring you comfort. She is at peace.
Much love, Rick and Pam Kinney

I have waited to write a message because I didn't want to believe it was true. I still remember the day Krista was born and how overjoyed we were to welcome her into our family. She was always so bubbly and fun to be around. I have such regret that I couldn't help her find her way. I will miss Krista everyday and will keep her spirit with me. I am always here for you Sharie, Sam, Jena, Lindsey, and Jack. Love, Aunt Sue
