Obituary From the Charlotte Observer.

Nine years ago last Friday this sweet girl and I were screaming our lungs out at a Backstreet Boys Concert. We didn't really keep in touch after high school but still the news made my heart stop. The fact that she's survived by not even a month old baby girl and had just barely seen her one year anniversary sends a trail of goosebumps up my arm. I've heard about the deaths of two other class mates both of whom committed suicide as well as a teacher who just recently passed away due to an illness and every time it's hard to absorb. I don't know what to say. Life is to short. Kristin may you rest in peace and may your little girl always feel your warmth around her.
