Dear ones, I am so thankful God allowed me to be part of Kristine’s life story Despite our difference in age we were close, and could always cut to the true nature of things. She was like my long distance big sister. She was a beautiful woman who had a true sense of hospitality. Her wit, intellect, and deep love for family have inspired me since I was little, not to mention her ability to create beautiful dwelling spaces. She had style! I know her recent health challenges weighed heavy on her heart, but didn’t keep her from spending precious time with her beloved grandson. Her love for you, Terra and Tim, was selfless and true. She was so proud of all you had become! Chuck, I’m thankful you had 44 years together. Your marriage was a true testimony to living out the promise you made to one another on your wedding day ….. for better and worse, in sickness and health. Bill and I have cherished memories of our time spent with you — from bra laden bars to Rocket 88 performances, you knew how to have a good time! And Ray, my heart hurts for you as you say goodbye to your sis, what a blessing you had in connecting a bit more in what turned out to be her final days. Please know our hearts are heavy with sadness for all of you. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. She is resting in the living, loving arms of God now. Her light will continue to shine on in heaven and through all of you as you carry out her legacy.
Jeanne & Bill
I was so sorry and shocked to hear the news of Kris passing. I will always remember her big beautiful smile and how kind she was whenever we saw her. I am thankful I was able to see her at my brother’s wedding last August. I only wish I was able to talk to her a little more. I will always remember her kindness and how much my mom lit up whenever she talked about her and the fun times she shared with her. Terra and Tim and Chuck and Ray you are all in my prayers.
Dear Kris, It is so difficult to have to say goodbye to you. We had so much fun talking on the phone and talking about people and laughing at them including ourselves. I will never forget 23 years ago when I married your brother, you were the one that made sure I felt a part of the family and welcomed me in with open arms. You were so kind. Your wit and sense of humor were beyond compare. I was also always envious of the perfect cook that you were and gracious hostess. I will miss you terribly but I also know that you are now in the arms of our Savior without pain and without problems and tribulations of life on earth. One thing for sure she absolutely adored her children and Camden. When we would talk about our kids and grandkids and you could tell that she loved Camden to the moon and back and was so proud of you Terra and Tim. and I know she loved Camden to the moon and back and was so pro. Your love for your husband was also strong and evident and she appreciated everything that you did for her. Rest in peace, dear Kris. You will be sadly missed.
You were such a great mother, mother-in-law, grandmother, and friend to us all. You were always willing to lend a hand or ear through stressful times and work-life demands. Without your help, I would not have been able to finish school or progress my career to the extent that I have. I am eternally grateful for the impact you have made to my life and most importantly Camden’s with all of the time you spent together. There is no bond like the bond between grandmother and grandchild (you were his best bud).
Throughout the years, Camden has grown so close to you and he does not quite understand why he cannot come see you; however, I trust with time he will begin to understand and we will be sure that the memory of your life and friendship (Boo and Grandma Morgan) lives on forever.
Just last night, I asked him “Who do you love?” and he responded, “I love mommy, umm and daddy.” Then yelled happily, “And Grandma Morgan!…. and Buppa too.. he’s Grumpy!” We all know who taught him that one and will remember it, along with many other fond memories, for the rest of our lives.
We love you with all of our hearts and trust that you are watching down on us from heaven.

Kris, you were the best mother-in-law ever and will be greatly missed!!
Dear Ray, Chuck, Terra, Tim, and your extended families,
I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers as you adjust to life without Kris’ physical presence. I know that she will live on in our hearts and memories. I have a picture of Alma’s granddaughters (Kris, Jeanne, and me) on my desk that I see each day. Will treasure it even more.
Kris, I will miss you alot, I will miss calling you to just chat, to see how things are going for you and your family. I will miss your funny e-mails, your great cooking, I will miss having you for my sister. Recently in the past weeks, I had an urge to call you more often and was starting to think I may be bothersome, but the real plan showed itself as I’m greatful to have spent more time connecting with you and letting you know I love you. Thanks for being MY sister, I love you.
