    I wanted to let you know that you have my greatest sympathy and my heart is truly saddened. Kirsten was more than just a wonderful person; her quite, happy nature was always a pleasure and I welcomed every opportunity to see her.

    I know that her passing will not only leave a void in your life, but in the hearts of all those who knew her. Kirsten will always remain within my heart. You and your family are in my daily prayers. May God give you strength. My sincere thoughts and prayers are with you.

    With my deepest sympathy,

    WE ARE COMING UP ON THE YEAR ANNIVERSARY OF KIRSTEN’S DEATH. ALTHOUGH WE KNOW KIRSTEN HAS NOW RECEIVED HER HEALING. WE ARE STILL SO DEEPLY SADDENED BY HER PASSING. THERE WILL NEVER BE A DAY THAT GOES BY WHILE I AM ON THIS EARTH THAT I WILL NOT MISS KIRSTEN AND LONG TO BE WITH HER, LONG TO SEE HER SWEET, INNOCENT SMILE! I AM SLOWLY GOING THROUGH THE GRIEF PROCESS AND LONG FOR THE DAYS THAT AREN’T SO EXCRUCIATING. I KNOW THE PAIN WILL EASE WITH TIME AT LEAST, THAT IS WHAT THEY SAY. THIS IS A REALLY TOUGH TIME FOR US. WILL YOU PLEASE PRAY FOR OUR FAMILY DURING THIS TIME.

    Hello Joel and Carrie; I am sending my deepest sympathy to you for your beautiful daughter and it is so late. I tried to locate you and put in your last name and searched in TN and saw this about your sweet daughter Kirsten. If we could have one moment with her in heaven, it would be a sweet relief to see her healthy and sitting on Jesus’s lap. I know He has her cradled in his arms if she isn’t running around playing around His Feet. And, we miss you in our area but we are thinking and I am going to pray for your family tonight. I remember both of you being so attentive when she was a small baby and the excitement in your house in Providence Place. You made a beautiful home for your family there and then moved again to Ancestry and created a beautiful home for your family there. You are sorely missed and I just wanted you to know I think about you often. Blessing to you and your family and I hope to hear from you soon. She is a beautiful and sweet daughter and you both are wonderful parents. May your days be filled with grace and May your life be filled with happiness in remembering how special she was to everyone.
