Lee, Hilda, Alex and Peter, with barely 3 weeks between her beautiful wedding and her untimely accidental death God suddenly called Kristina home. Our sorrow, grief and confusion are joined with yours and that of all who knew and cherished Kristina. Our faith tells us she is in a better place and a loving God has called her home. We now ask that same God to grant us the consolation and acceptance of His divine will. May His holy peace reside within you and may Kristina rest in eternal peace.

I am so sorry to read of Kristina's passing. I extend my condolences to her husband and the entire family. Psalm 34:18 says: Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit. May you be comforted by his words during your time of bereavement.
