Some days are more difficult than others.
This is one such day for Kristie’s family. Fifteen years ago today, she was murdered. Although she got to run into the arms of Jesus and leave the difficulties of this life behind, her family was left to deal with the trauma and hurt that her sudden and tragic death brought.
The best ways to encourage a family on the anniversary of their loved one’s death is to:
- celebrate their loved one’s life
- share memories and not let the loved one’s memory fade.
In honor of Kristie and her love for our Lord and Savior, today we want to remember her and all the lives she touched.
