I knew this young woman, Kristen, through her aunt. She came with her sisters to Bristol IN and Bridgman MI once a year for vacation and shopping with her aunt. She had a beautiful spirit, was very polite and well mannered. She didn't mind talking to an older person, even though she was a teenager. She always had time to chat. I will truly miss seeing her.

Lisa, I am praying for your friend's family as well as her boyfriend's family. I will pray for you too because I know you will miss your good friend Kristen deeply.

I went to school with Kristen. She was so sweet. I am praying for her twin sister, siblings, other family members, friends, and her boyfriend. I cannot even begin to imagine how hard this must be for everyone who was so close to her.
With prayers and best of thoughts and wishes for Kristen's family and friends,

I knew Kristen and Kendra from Camp Algonquin where I used to work. Such lovely well mannered girls. A credit to their Mom Kathy. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

Hey, did you ever think of teaching your Kids not to play on the train-tracks?

Do you see that leather thing around your waist that holds your pants up?? It is called a belt, you lay that across a Kid's ass when they play with matches (and walk on the train-tracks), and they won't do it any more. It's REAL easy!!

Wake up Mom & Dad.

Girls, I saw you the other day at the cemetery where Kristen is and i am praying for you and all of Kristen's friends and family. I know how hard this is, going through life without somebody dear next to you, but she is right there, hanging out the best way she can. My girl, Eri was killed 4.5 years ago by a train. She was 19 and the lights were broken at the crossing. To the idiot above...you have no idea of all teh circumstances involved. In our case, a fuse was blown for almost a year and my daughter was the one that got hit. NO matter how...sudden death is very difficult to work through. Live your best life girls, as she would want/

Ok, first of all i am so sorry for your loss to everyone who knows this girl. Secondly, This is to the Jackass above. We feel that someone needs to come and smack you across the face with that thing that holds up your pants. If you have comments no matter how stupid they may be KEEP THEM TO YOURSELF!! No one cares about them and this is certainly not the place to be writing them.

I think you need to keep your comments to yourself and find some compassion. Get off the computer and go out and find help for your sick mind!!!
