Friends are kisses blown to us by angels…
Kira was missing for 77 days. I searched. Kira's powerful passion for life united hundreds of strangers, a handful of friends, and her determined family together during these 77 days. I am proud to call you all my friends.
Kira taught me that life is short. She taught me that even when I am feeling defeated, giving up is not an option. Her family taught me that “family” means that nobody is left behind. I learned that blood does not define family.
I never had the pleasure of knowing Kira, but grew to know her through her friends and family while searching and on the road for justice. The stories of how she always blinked when having her photo taken, how much she loved Caribou Coffee, her dog, family, Riesling, and how she wasn't the best of drivers, but was always first to pick them up when called. Everyone said that Kira could brighten anyone's day, just by flashing her beautiful smile. Kira ~ Your story will continue to change lives forever. You will never be forgotten. Pura Vida Kira!
