I have cared for Kiki for the past 2 years at Denton State. I am more than grateful to have been able to come into her and her family's lives. Kiki was my best friend.....and she will forever be in my heart. Kiki was always so happy and put a huge smile on my face on a daily basis. I will cherish the times we had together always and forever.

Kristin is no longer confined by her disabled body, but totally healed! She is now jumping and leaping for Joy in the presence of her Lord Jesus!

Two memories come to mind: As a toddler or really a baby, she would say, "My Justin!" She was a beautiful and very smart child. The other memory was how she would jump off the high diving board at the city pool. She was amazing!

Linda, may the Holy Father and Lord Jesus comfort each of you during this time. Love, Linda

Chris and I will not be able to come to the service tomorrow, and we want you to know you are in our thoughts and prayers. I can remember when Kristin got sick while we were all attending Perritte Memorial. You have been an amazing mother. Now rest because KiKi is in the arms of Jesus along with Leslie and Holly. While at the cemetery, look for the red flowers just a short distance from KiKi. They will forever be close to each other. Psalms 30:5 is our strength in knowing we will see them again all in picture-perfect bodies.
Much love,
Chris and Joanne Englert
