Condolences & Tributes

Celebrate Krista's life with a short message, photo or video!

Krissie, Sara…My deepest condolences go out to ya’ll and to the rest of the family and all of Krista’s loved ones. May you find peace knowing there’s no more tears, and no more suffering, That she, herself, is at peace. (Rev. 21:4) ❤️ I will never forget that summer I stepped on those bees. I think I was 6 or 7? Not sure where my mama was (Lord rest her soul), but Krista heard me crying and she came running to me. Just as loving as can be, and treated me as if I were her own child that got stung. She took me to her house and gently doctor‘ed me up. She was very compassionate, giving….joyful. I’ll never forget her laugh or smile… Rest in Peace, Krista. 🌈❤️🕊

Mama K will forever be known as one of the sweetest people I have ever known. She was one of a kind, and the epitome of a southern lady. She was always kind and generous and did not have a selfish bone in her body. She will be missed, but stories of her and her sayings that I still use to this day will live on. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
