I lost a good friend this week. Kristin was killed a car accident near her home. It is always hard to loose someone close to you, but even more so when they are taken suddenly without any warning. It is frustrating to not be able to have a little closure, our human minds are not equipped to handle separation.
Kristin was one of my goat buddies. She was the one who introduced us to our first little guys and became my kids 4-H leader. We have built a great friendship since that summer and have traveled to shows and fairs together, camped out in the trailer together, laughed until we nearly peed our pants and talked goats til the wee hours of the night.
She leaves behind a husband, son (20) and daughter (16). We are so heartbroken for their family. She was a great lady that mean a lot to so many people, yet she didn't know it. I feel so bad that I did not express my love and admiration to her more often. So many are coming forward to her Facebook page and leaving the most wonderful messages. I hope she can see everyone of those and know how much she was loved here on earth. She had a big heart and gave it so generously.
I hope she is at peace now and is pain free after several years of struggling with injuries from being thrown from her horse. We thought we were going to loose her then, but she was such a fighter that she pulled through to give all of us a few more years of her time. Rest in peace my great friend.
