I didnt know Kristine but from what I have heard and read she was a very special person. Someone gave me this little prayer when I lost my brother to tragedy, so I would like to pass it to you: Dark clouds may at times hide the sun and there may be days in my life that seem clouded and dark. Whatever my challenge or sorrow, I know there is a place where God's light never ceases to shine and where there is no darkness. I go to that place within prayer. Finding a comfortable spot, I close my eyes. I see the light that penetrates any shadow, and I feel the radiance of Gods love in my heart. I am comforted and strengthened. My mind is calm with a sense of peace. I face nothing alone: Gods presence is always with me. There is no darkness that can withstand the light of God. I am safe. I am comforted. Peace be with you-Nancy Pickert-Odessa Dear Linda, Jeff and Brian, Sorry to hear about the loss of Kristine. I have great memories of you all on Vernon Ave. My deepest sympathy to you all.

Love you, Debi Heywood Donahue Lynda...I'm so sad to read of your daughter's passing; there are no words that can describe what your pain must be. My deepest sympathy to you and your family. Ron Bennett Lynda, I lost a niece a few years ago and this is a prayer that was for her which I would like to share with you. I'M FREE DON'T GRIEVE FOR ME FOR NOW I'M FREE. I'M FOLLOWING THE PATH GOD LAID FOR ME. I TOOK HIS HAND WHEN I HEARD HIM CALL. I TURNED MY BACK AND LEFT IT ALL. I COULD NOT STAY ANOTHER DAY. TO LAUGH, TO LOVE, TO WORK OR PLAY. TASKS LEFT UNDONE MUST STAY THAT WAY. I'VE FOUND THAT PEACE AT CLOSE OF DAY. IF MY PARTING HAS LEFT A VOID, THEN FILL IT WITH REMEMBERED JOY.
