Re: Our Kris.

Gavin - I try to donate blood when I can (since my son needed so much).  It just so happens there is a blood drive at my local YMCA on Feb. 19.  I thought it was ironic to be the same day as Kris' Memorial Service.....it will be my way of giving back for John and for Kris as well.  I wanted to be close to the Atlantic Ocean that day, since I believe they are scattering Kris' ashes in the Atlantic.  I may drive to the Jersey shore (about a 30 minute drive for me) after donating blood and place a few tulips in the waves.  I miss Kris a lot.  She was a great friend to all; and she and my son had a very special bond.  Thanks for sharing - Nancy

So disappointed.  I just found out I can't donate blood tomorrow because it is too soon since my last donation (earliest I can give again is Feb. 25!).  So, I will have to think of something else tomorrow to honor "Our Kris."  Anyone have any good ideas?  Let's all remember our good friend tomorrow by doing something in her honor and memory.......Hugs to Hans and Kris' family!!!!

What a beautiful picture of our Kris!  You can't ignore that twinkle in her eyes.  This is how I'll remember Kris and I'll think of her anytime I see daffodils.....

Thanks Gavin,

Re: Our Kris.

Today (Nov 17) would have been Kris' (devoncats) 37th birthday, and it's the first since her passing away. I took the day off and took some chocolate cakes up to the hospital wards she thought of as "hers". I remember decorating our bed room with little stars and stripes a year ago, and giving her a purple scarf who's only real use was to be folded on the table under her urn at the funeral service... I miss her laughter - it made all the difference.

Re: Our Kris.

I feel your pain as Dec. 6th will be one year already for Teddy. Happy Birthday, Kris.

Re: Our Kris.

Hans,

What a lovely way to remember Kris's birthday.  She is greatly missed by so many and her wit and wisdom is missed on these boards.  Cherish those memories Hans.  She will always be with you in your heart and memories.  I think of you often and hope you are getting on OK, or atleast as best you can. 

Love & Hugs from Wisconsin,
Darla

Re: Our Kris.

I miss her

Re: Our Kris.

Hans,

Kris really brought so much humor to this board and I really miss that, I mean, there are other funny people on here but she really was the leader of the band and we were privileged to be privy to her very unique brand of humor, the kind that has you bursting out laughing at your computer and people are asking you what is so funny? She was a comedienne extraordinaire.

Re: Our Kris.

Hans......Our sweet, sweet, Kris, how she is missed on this site.  For me the color purple always represents our Kris especially since she had contemplated coloring her hair "purple."

Re: Our Kris.

Dear Hans,
I did not know Kris for she had passed before my daughter was diagnosed with CC. I know she and Lauren would have gotten along famously. I have gone back through a lot of Kris's posts and she always seemed to find humor even in her darkest moments. What an honor it must have been to have her as your wife. I am sorry for your loss, but I'm sure you are full of lovely memories of such a beautiful person. She was also lucky to have such a supportive, loving husband. Take care and God bless you.

Re: Our Kris.

Hans,
I hope my Tom has or will run into Kris. I always told him about her. How much we all loved her. We miss her laughter too! It came through all of her posts. Take care and keep in touch. I understand what you are feeling. Life will never be the same but all of us must keep going one day at a time. 
Love, Mary

Re: Our Kris.

Today would have been Kris' 38th birthday. Where else to celebrate it than on this site?!

Although the aniversary of her death (Jan 4th, almost two years now) is also special, her birthday is more important to me - she was always much more focused on life than on death, and as time goes by, all the fear, pain and suffering fades in my memory, and her spritelieness and giggly laughter stand out more and more. I seldom think of her without a smile!

I thought that rather than write a new post I'd bump this one, since it has the link with the picture. Yes, I remember the twinkle just like it is in the picture...

She always lit two candles in her "prayer chimney", one for herself and one for someone else - usually someone on this page. Tonight there are two candles burning there again, and again one of them is for you folks - all of you. I wonder how many of her cancer buddies are still around, and if newcomers to the site sometimes wonder about her stranger entries...?

Bless you
/Hans

Re: Our Kris.

Happy Birthday, Dearest Kris. Hans, thanks for remembering us with the candles and I can say for certain that yes, our new members do see Kris's posts and us old timers always refer to her as our Sweet Kris. We love you too, Hans and it is so good to see you posting today!

You mention Kris's stranger entries.... her posts and expertise regarding all things poo related are much treasured to this day and always will be! What great humour and a lovely smile our Kris had!
