Kristi was so many thing to so many people. She was an amazing mother to Jack, warrior for our community and a nurturing soul to those in need. We will miss her and feel be absence deeply.

I was lucky to work with Kristi at the Kansas Humane Society. She had an incredible heart for animals and for people. Love and light to you all.

I DIDN'T KNOW KRISTI WELL, BUT EVERY TIME I SAW HER, SHE HAD A SMILE. I AM SO HAPPY FOR HER FORWARD THINKING TO BE AN ORGAN DONOR, AND I WILL PRAY FOR HER FAMILY AND FRIENDS.
