I am so sorry for your loss Mikey and family. Kris was great fun to be around, I will always remember her because we shared the same birthday. I feel very blessed to have known someone as special as Kris! May she rest in peace! Love, Gina

I am so sorry to hear about Kristy. I worked with her at Sheehan Cycle and we became friends. We have good times together and I often thought of her, because I didn't get to see her anymore now that she moved. She was a fun, caring and loving person and was there for me when I needed her and I also tried to be there for her when Mike was gone and she was having trouble. She is a person I will never forget. I hope she is free of all the pain and misery with the angels now.

My deepest sympathy's go out to her family and friends, I met Kris when she worked at Sheehan Cycle. We only talked a few times, I too have Cystic Fibrosis and know what it's like to go through all the ups and downs. Kris seemed like a very caring and joyous person to be around. Sorry for your loss
