Kristin was so very much loved and cherished. She was an inspiration to her family and friends and those who came in contact with her, whether it was through her professional or personal life. Her love, kindness, selflessness and friendships were admired by all who knew her. Her amazing glow and beautiful smile were characteristics that people often associated themselves with and how much she could light up the room with her presence. Whatever involvement or interaction she had with people, she always walked away with new friendships and loving thoughts.
