Kristina...we send you our Love and Prayers. You and your Mom were always so very special to us and please know we are thinking about you. Ansleigh was mentioning you last night and said she read your FB comments and thinking of you. We have a lot of fond memories of how you always welcomed us in your home and invited Ans to come after school so often. We will always hold the memories close in our hearts.
