Krista is an inspiration to so many people. Itís amazing how many people she has touched throughout her life. She had her circles of friends and then all of us have our circle of friends that have been praying for her and were touched by her story and her amazing will to fight. I canít even imagine how many people that is. I believe Godís plan for her was to spread his word and teach all of us to be grateful for each day. To not sweat the small stuff. To make each day great. To make memories every day. To love one another. To smile every day no matter what. And she followed that plan, thereís no doubt about it. I believe I am a better person today because of her.
Although we are sad that she is gone, we can find comfort in knowing that God has made her whole again. Until we meet again, Krista, "make it a great day, I know I will."
"Have a wonderful, memory-filled life, because of all of you, I did!" -Krista
