    shall always remember Kristen as that pretty little girl in the peach dress at Terry & Steve’s wedding, so proud of herself, helping with flowers.
    She had such big dreams, wanted to grow up to be a doctor so she could help people. What a tragedy to lose a beautiful young woman like her. My heart goes out to all who loved her and who she leaves behind, keep her close in your hearts and memories.
    With deepest sympathy, Julie Sargent

My daughter rides the Data bus with Payton and always talks about how cute he is and well mannered. I am sure he will miss his Mom greatly and she left a wonderful memory of herself with him.

    Kristen was my classmate and friend since grades school. Since graduating with her in the class of 2000 I had only seen her a handful of times. I was unaware of of any health problems and this news is very sad. Kristen was always very kind to me and she laughed at my stupid jokes. Rest in peace Kristen and my condolences to the Stephens family.

    Tina and family: My heart is breaking for you. It is beyond our wildest imagination that we bury our children. I am praying for strength and love for you in these upcoming seemingly impossible days. Please hold everyone close (especially her babies) and rely on each other for support, and the joyful memories. Know that she is not sick anymore and watching over you and her children! I am a phone call away if you need me girl. God Bless.

    Kristen and I used to play together a lot as kids. Unfortunately as time went on, our lives took different paths. We would run into each other from time to time, and Kristen always greeted me with her contagious smile and a warm greeting. She touched many lives. I’m so sorry for the loss of Kristen. My heart goes out to her family and friends.
