  1. I will always remember her laugh and her devotion to her sons. She played “mom” to me more than once over the last 16 years. She took me in just like family and was always supportive, honest, and full of love for me and truly wanted to see me happy in life. I watched her treat others the same, time after time. My favorite quote of Kristie’s was, “Get up and put your face on.” Assuring me that God could not work in my life if I was not willing to at least get up and be ready to receive His will. My favorite quote of Matt’s was “She is who she is.” Knowing that no matter how much we nudged or suggested in one direction, she would go whichever direction she wanted, even if it was the long way. She did it her way. And I loved her for that unique characteristic most of all. My deepest sympathy to the family. She touched a lot of lives and my story wouldn’t be the same without her.

  2. Will always remember her bright smile and friendly personality. Kristie was always a joy to be around! Prayers for her family!
