I met Krista through my roommate, who was her lab partner. She was one of the sweetest people I’ve ever met even after only a few interactions with her. So kind, funny, and incredibly smart! Sending out my deepest condolences to her family and friends. A beautiful soul inside and out no doubt. She will be forever missed and always in our thoughts.

Krista and I were co-workers at Lexington Medical Center. We enjoyed so many laughs together and truly made work fun on our busiest nights. I always called her "med school", because she was so passionate about becoming a doctor. To her family, she was simply an angel, a very sweet girl. My deepest condolences and prayers are with the family. Rest in peace "Med school"!! ❤️

It is with such sadness that myself and our family reaches out to you with our condolences. Krista was so loved by Matt and it was so easy for our family to embrace Krista into our lives. She was a beautiful young lady. We enjoyed her sweet disposition and were so happy for her and Matt’s love for one another and future together. It is devastating to us all and please know our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

Krista is in our hearts today, tomorrow and always.

With deepest sympathy,
Terry Sheehan and Family

I had classes with Krista in highschool and I remember her always being so smart. She had a kind heart and smile and was never negative. I knew with how smart she was and her personality that she was going to be very successful. I'm so sorry to hear about her passing away so young. I pray for her and everyone in her life who are hurting right now. Bless all of you who raised such a kind and genuine person. Though she may have been taken so young, I know she has made such impacts in people's lives. God bless her and all of her family and friends.

Krista Harmon has been one of the smartest, sweetest, strongest, most beautiful young women I have ever known. From the time she was just a girl - maybe 3rd grade? - I have experienced her tender but tough spirit. Krista Harmon has such a special place in my heart. She has brought me delight and warmth in so many ways. Her smile has melted me again and again, and her eyes have always spoken truth. Krista, of all things, has been someone I could trust to be "real." That is so rare. And a quality I most admire. I miss her as I speak of her. I miss her as I think of her. I miss her as I remember times together with her. One of my favorite moments was when she asked me about wearing makeup looking in the mirror in the bathroom of an Italian restaurant where we took her and Seth for pizza occasionally. I knew then, that she was about to grow up on me! I have loved having Krista in our lives, from those little girl days when she was hanging out with us, to the growing up days when she would check in with us. She made sure she and Cindy did not miss Seth's HS graduation and they celebrated together with us and our family that night. How sweet that she cared. I have felt proud and inspired by Krista during all her growing up and into her young adult years. She pushed forward into her plans like nobody's business. Her adventurousness, too, has always inspired me. Looking high into the mountain tops or deep into the ocean waters, she has just exuded love for humanity and for creation. Krista has loved me, and my family even when we didn't deserve it, always gracious and understanding. I am so grateful that she touched us with her heart and soul. How blessed we are that we have known Krista. How honored I am that I have had the privilege to be loved by her. She taught me to notice Jane Magnolias Trees. I will never see them again without seeing Krista too. I will continue to hold onto Krista in my heart, sensing her presence as I do right now. Love to you all.
