Our Fondest Memories are at our family reunions camp out and our holidays together as a family with Kris and so many of her cousins that made these occasions such a fun happy one. We will miss her more than I can even say. She was definitely a Trooper.
She had a giggle all her own. I can still hear it.
Your auntie Fern loves you so much Kris.
