I am so sorry she is gone and I know that the loss you feel is immeasurable and there is nothing I can say to make it feel smaller. We also feel her loss, Kristin was an integral part of us and she helped so many here. The grief section of the board was very helpful for me, visit whenever, we are here.

Kevin, the news about Kristen hit me hard for I did not expect it. But with what we are all fighting you never know. Kristen was such an up person that I always looked forward to reading about what she was doing. She was so up front sharing her experiences. I will miss her.

I’m very sorry for your loss of Kristin. What a touching way to say goodbye to her by scattering her ashes in a Wisconsin lake. I remember many of Kristin’s posts and she will be missed by many. I wish there was something more that I could say, but just take peace in your memories of her and all that she meant to a lot of people. “You are never really gone if you live in the hearts of those you leave behind”.
Peace be with you, and come back often for any support that you may need.

So sorry to hear about Kristin. It is strange how this can happen so fast and unexpectedly in some instances! My heart goes out to you Kevin and I wish there was something I could say or do.
I am currently in the Bahama’s on our dream trip to Atlantis, but my wife has told me that I scared her yesterday and sort of ruined the trip due to some as I have had some unexplainded dellusionalism. It is really strange. I found myself preparing for things that I know now did not need to be done. It really scared her. And – I have a new buildup of ascites which is scary for me and I realize that this could be causing the symptoms such as buildup of amonia – But I never thought it could happen this fast!
Sorry – I didn’t mean to hyjack your thread. I’ll create a new one.
You and Kristin are in our prayers. You are very special peole here and Kistrin will be missed by many people. If there is anything practical that we could do to help, pleaes let us know!!

Kevin and Family:
Words cannot express – I am so very sorry for your loss. Kristin was my inspiration. Yes, she is at peace now. I am so happy that her ashes will be spread in Wisconsin as I know she had many happy memories here in Wisconsin.
Go with God Kevin, and please come back to this site often, as it may help with your grieving and with your healing.
I will never forget Kristin and I’m happy that I was able to do something special for her during the last few months of her life, even if it was something so simple as sending her Tegaderm Films for covering her bandage. I know that made her trip to Wisconsin to see her Grandmother more comfortable for her.

How sad. My sincerest condolences to you and prayers that Kristen is both at peace and looking down on you now from a place where this disease will no longer affect her. She was a brave woman, and I admire her strength throught her battle.October 9, 2010 at 9:53 am #42722monkeybuttParticipant
I am just devasted with this news. Kristin was such a warm and special person. I have been out of the loop sitting in the hospital with my own problems. I had no idea this was coming and I just dont know what to say. I will say a special prayer for Kristin tonight and send you my warmest thoughts and hugs.
I will miss her very very much.

I’m so very sorry to hear of Kristin’s passing. Thank you so much for letting us all know. I can’t imagine how difficult this is for you. I’m so sad for you and I hope you have family and friends to lean on. I really admired Kristin’s courage, sense of humor and intelligence. I will miss her.

I’m so sorry for your loss. I felt terrible about the suffering Kristen was going through these past months and I do believe she is now at peace. I am not necesarily a religious person in an organized type of way but I do believe our loved ones stay near us spiritually for a time and I hope you feel Kristen’s presence around you in the days and months ahead. You mentioned her rocking chair and that hits home. My husband brought a very ugly rocker from a flea market shortly after his diagnosis that he insisted he put on our back porch so that he could rock and watch the birds. Fortunately for me he is still here to enjoy it but if I lose him some day I will always keep that rocker no matter what! Just take things one day at a time, that’s all any of us can do, and feel free to call on friends here. Take care, MaryOctober 8, 2010 at 7:20 pm #42719kathybMember
Thank you for letting us know. My sincerest sympathy. I hope you will be able to find the peace Kristin found.

I am so sorry to hear about Kristin. Although we never met in person she touched my heart with her kind words of advice whilst I have been searching for answers regarding my Dad. She truly was an inspirational person who will be greatly missed.
You and your families are in my thoughts.
AndreaOctober 8, 2010 at 5:08 pm #42717katjaMember
Sincere condolences Kevin. I’m with you, I think the meaning you have to look for is in her life and memory. She was an inspiration to many here and so dearly loved by you and those around her.
I hope you can find some peace and a path for yourself.
