    To the Warner, Hutchinson, and Pyle families–My condolences. Having known Kristin most of her adult life, I feel I have also lost a family member. She had a heart of gold and fiercely loved her family. The world has lost a wonderful human being, but heaven has gained a wonderful angel. May your memories help you through this grieving process.

    My prayers are being sent your way.

    For I am convinced that neither Angels nor demons neither the present nor future, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation will be able to separate us from the joy of God that is in Christ Jesus our lord.
    Sending our deepest sympathy,
    Tim and Carol

  20. Kelley DePauw (Ayers) says:

    I am so sorry to hear of your loss, I knew Kristy and Angie growing up because my dearest long life friend was her cousin Kathie, who is now together with her again. I always remembered Kristy’s little angelic face and beautiful soft, bouncy curls! I didn’t get to see much of her as an adult, but I’m sure she was a wonderful, sweet, and caring women just as she was when she was young. My heart and prayers go out to you. God Bless and love to all of you.

  21. Scott and Jody Dill says:

    My deepest condolences. I knew Kristin when she worked at Davenport College (University). She was my first boss and quickly became a very dear friend. She was the kindest, sweetest friend with a great laugh and so much love for her family.

    May your memories of her comfort you. She will always be in my heart.
