Dear Sherry:

How can one even find the words at such a difficult time as this? But I do know the great Comforter, our Lord Jesus Christ, will help you through this. May it comfort you to know you are in our hearts, thoughts and prayers during this time of pain and sorrow.

John 14:18 ~ "I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you."

Hey Babygirl.... I never would've thought to see this day come, but it has, and now you're in the arms of God and there's no better place to be. I can't believe you're gone, and I'm tearing up just typing this but I have to remember that although you're time here was short, God felt you're mission on Earth was complete and it was time to come home. Words can't express how much you'll be truly missed. And I'm not saying goodbye...

To Mr. & Mrs. Nelson, I can't tell you how much I am sorry for your loss. And to the rest of Krissie's family, I know you've lost an angel.

I hope to see you again some day hunny bunch.

Love Always,
Nicole

The times that I have come in paths with Kristina it was always so pleasant. She was a very sweet person and this saddens me deeply. My heart goes out to Sherry and her family and hope they know what a wonderful child they raised. Also my son Chad Felder, Jr who is very close friends with her little brother David also would like to send his sympathy. She will be greatly missed!

Kristina, you are and will forever be my best friend. Even through these last four years I've been away at college, we have always kept in contact. You are truly a beautiful person, and I am so grateful that God has blessed me to meet you. I went to my first concerts and parties with you. We always said that our lives would be boring without each other. I remember once you went to Conard, I made sure I came to West Hartford every weekend to see my best friend. This has truly been a shock to me, but God needed you and that is the only thing giving me peace right now. To your family, I am truly sorry for your loss, may God strenghthen you through this. I love you forever Krissie! Always!

Kristina I am so devastated by your untimely passing, the thought of you no longer being with us just rips my heart in two. All the good times we shared is all I have now, but sometimes it just doesn’t seem to be enough to stop the hurting. You were a true angel on earth, you were funny, loving, sarcastic, gullible lol….and just and all around beautiful person. My condolences go out to your family and all your loved ones. I will continue to keep you in my heart and prayers until the day we meet again and I will cherish all the priceless moments we’ve had. RIP KRISTINA AND I LOVE YOU FOREVER!

To all the many relatives of this beloved family. There are no words to convey the loss of such a beautiful young woman. My heart goes out to everyone, I had met Kristina at social gatherings which were held at Kristina's aunt Sonja Nelson's residence. Kristina was a very vibrant, young lady. No words can convey how I feel for the whole family, as well as my dear friend Sonja Nelson, whom I know is suffering from this loss. I can only say that God now has the brightest "Star" shining down in the sky.

Kristina, you were always a great friend, we did so much together when we were young, from singing together, being lil angels in girls activity or Sunday School, playing store with your mom's old checkbooks, and I am certainly gonna miss our birthday dinners in January, esp the time you ended up paying for my mom bec she didn't bring cash! ;-) Times with you were all happy and good memories that I will cherish always. I'm glad through the years and choices we've made, we remained friends and kept in touch. You will be missed greatly. You are loved. Rest in Peace Beautiful.

To the Family, My condolences to you all during this time. My prayers are with you for comfort and strength. God Bless.

We understand as our son gained his wings in 2003. Our children are the light of our hearts and when we are left to grieve them the pain can become overwhelming, please know you are not alone. Many walk with you and we are near if you ever need anything, we have walked this path. During this time be gentle with yourselves, do what you can as you can. Hold each other close and we will hold you in our prayers.
