  1. my sympathy to her family. I met Kristina at Cancer Care as my husband was getting chemo also.; she was such a positive and happy person, always hopeful and upbeat.; I loved sitting and talking to her. My husband passed away in Feb so I did know how she was doing and was so sad to see in the paper she had passed away.. My deepest sympathies. Connie Robinson

  2. Krissy was a part of the Y Aerobics group for many years and was always smiling and energetic. We enjoyed her so much. She came to many aerobics reunion summer and holiday get-togethers always bringing something special to share, most recently in August 2017.
    She fought the good fight and will be at peace.

  3. She was such a sweet ray of sunshine. I didn't know her long but I will miss her. She worked so hard and was always thinking of others. Our prayers go out to her family for Gods grace and peace. She will be sorely missed, but she is waiting for us and we will all be together again in heaven.

  4. Krissy was a sweet lady and very helpful and caring. I haven't known her long but she touched my heart. Will miss Krissy but will see Sweet Krissy again in the Sweet Bye and Bye when we meet on that beautiful crystal shore. Thank you Lord Jesus for being with Krissy every step of her life's journey and that sher is with you where she has no more pain and is renewed in boidy and spirit dancing with your Angels!
