Kristy was nothing but a Ray of Sunshine when I used to clean Ms. Jo & her home... Lots of laughter, gossip & did what she could to keep the Cat away from me, lol (allergies)... I am sad for moment. I do know that she is healed and rejoicing in Heaven now..And, I'm sure she would want us to do the same. Been several years, 2011... but the years," & Memories" NEVER forgotten.... I will keep you in my Heart as I know so many will... Fly high & free, my friend.......
