I wrote this poem in hopes to read it at the funeral but, it was too difficult to, so I want to post it here for everyone to see to look back on. I hope it helps someone in some way to remember her as the person we know and love.

Krishawna was apart of my best memories of high school. She was always able to bring something positive to our group, even when we were struggling. Krishawna, Anastasia, and I took ceramics together, and I made a lot of good memories with them in that class. We would be laughing so much, Mr. Braille would frequently have to tell us to be quiet. When I left to go to the bathroom, Krishawna and Anastasia used to take my phone and take a bunch of silly photos with it. Those pictures always bring a smile to my face, and I look back on those memories fondly. Krishawna helped me get through a hard time in my life by always bringing joy and laughter. And even though we weren’t as close recently due to distance, the impact she had on my life will last me a lifetime. She was taken far too soon, but it comforts me to know she’s in a better place now.
I will miss her greatly.

I have known krishawna for 8 years, and if you were to ask me what she means to me words could never describe the amount of love I have for her. She found a special place in my heart and I’m so happy to have made all the memories that I’ll forever cherish. She had a smile that would light the whole room and a heart of gold. I loved her like a sister and nothing could ever break the bond we both had for each other. She was the most caring person I have ever met and she became a very important part of my life. With her I could always be my complete self, there was never any judgment because she would join in on my weirdness without a care about what anyone else would think. I remember sometimes we would hang out and just end up sitting in the car just talking for hours about whatever came to our heads. It didn’t matter what we were doing if it was going out, running errand’s for her family or just chilling at her house watching bad scary movies just so we could judge it and laugh. We didn’t care what we were doing because any time we had was enough no matter what we always had fun and I will hold onto every memory we have made together to keep her memory alive. Rest easy my friend you will always be the strongest most bravest person I know. You will forever hold a special place in my heart.
Love your friend,

I will always remember the time we spent at lunch during our high school days where Krishawna's giggle would light up our group. She had a positive outlook on life and worked hard towards her dreams. I remember when we ran into each other at my workplace and decided to hang out after my shift to watch some terrible horror movies with Anastasia. I honestly had such a great time as we made constant jokes about the terrible plots of these films, and it brightened my day at the time from working such a long shift. I'm still deeply shocked that she will no longer be in our lives but I will hold the time we spent together close to my heart.
