Not sure what to say?

Kris was a great friend of mine at Bethany College (once a Bethany friend, always a Bethany friend!). I have many fond memories of wonderful, fun times together. My hope and prayer is that God would give comfort to Kris' loved ones. She will live in the hearts of the many she touched.

Kris is a dear friend. We enjoyed many memorable times together in college. We lost touch but she has never been far from my heart. It was touching to read of her service in life. Prayers of peace and comfort to Cheryl and all their family.

Kris was my college roommate our freshman year at Bethany. I have many fond memories of those days, and am so sorry to hear about her passing. Kris was a thoughtful and caring person, and I know she will be greatly missed by those who knew and loved her.

I, too, was a college roommate of Kris and later several of us shared an apartment. Recently I have lost touch which is my fault, and I am very sorry to hear of her passing. I send my condolences to all her family. Sharon Burk

Kris, and I were room mates in college. We were on the volleyball and basketball teams together and made many lasting memories. She was a wonderful, fun and caring friend. Though we haven't kept in contact over the years, I will miss her. I pray her family finds comfort and peace in Jesus Christ our Savior and in God's loving grace.

Peace to you.

Kris had a kind smile, a quick laugh, dry wit, and a gentle soul. I have many fond memories of growing up with Kris in church and school, but those are what I remember most. May God grant you peace as you grieve the loss of your daughter, sister, wife and friend.

Kris was my sister and my friend! She was kind, thoughtful, generous, and fun! Kris had a great sense of humor. Over the last few years especially, we had some very amazing, wonderful times together. There is so much more to say about Kris...I will miss her forever.

It is hard to put into words all that Kris meant to me, to our family. She's the youngest sister. I can barely comprehend how much we will miss her. In her 57 years, she lived a full life as Cheryl wrote of in the obit. She endeared herself to so many people! Kris used her gifts and abilities, her time and energy to serve and help others. She was way creative. Kris had a beautiful and generous spirit and loved to share her home and CA climate with us.
Kris was always special...
