Friends of Kristina



How do you put into words a lifetime of feelings you have for your child? How do you express the emptiness you feel because she is no longer here to hug, laugh with, or share those special mother/daughter moments with? I’m learning how to live with this hole in my heart, but it is not easy.

I feel blessed to have had Kristina in my life even if it was only for 12 short years. I’m grateful for the lessons she taught me and for the loving relationship we had. She had a unique view of life (especially for a kid), a way of seeing right down into someone’s soul. She knew what you needed and when. She was able to turn a bad situation into something you could learn and grow from. Kristina was simply the RAINBOW on a wet and gloomy day.

Thank you Kristina, for being my daughter. Thank you for our late “tickling sessions”, for giving me those incredible hugs when I was feeling sad, and for being just a remarkable person. You will always be my inspiration and I will never forget you. I love you honey bunny. Sleep tight!



Summertime was always a joyful time of year for our family. Kristina and her brother loved being at the Jersey Shore visiting Granny and Grandpa Kopf. We filled our days playing on the beach, swimming in the ocean, and creating wonderful memories with family. Kristina was the oldest girl cousin and relished being the “big sister” to all the little ones. Ashley was the next oldest. Kristina and Ashley were like night and day when they sat next to one another. Kristina had dark hair and a deep tan while Ashley had golden blonde hair and fair skin

Ashley was only 9 when Kristina died. At 14, she is growing up to be a beautiful young lady with a gift for writing. In June 2004, Ashley’s story, “Kristina” was published in Chicken Soup for the Preteen Soul 2. Thank you Ashley, for honoring Kristina’s spirit in such a wonderful way. We are so proud of you!
