She was our daughter, a sister, an aunt, a niece, a cousin, a granddaughter and a friend. She was a country girl at heart. She was also a model and a “bull” (Taurus was her Zodiacal sign). Krissy was a tall, curvy and suntanned girl. She loved children and animals; her big blue Chevy truck and “mudding”; country music and line dancing on Sunday nights; blue jeans and cowboy boots; bikinis and the beach; sleeping late and eating waffles for breakfast; CK perfume and Oil of Olay. She listened to country music 99.9 “Kiss” FM. Garth & Reba were at the top of her charts and Brad Pitt captured her heart.
Krissy embarked on a modeling career following in her sister’s footsteps, which led her to runway shows in NY and Milan, and thirteen magazine covers, along with TV appearances on MTV and ET.
Her travels took her far and wide; to Atlanta, New York, Connecticut, Cabo San Lucas, St. Barths, California, Hawaii and Milan. Krissy lived a beautiful little life full of fond memories of her friends and family. Her goal in life was a simple but honorable one: to one day be happily married with a family of her own.
She would want to be remembered as a country girl who loved life and all the excitement of living it to the fullest. In the pages that follow, we hope you get to know her a little better. May you keep her spirit in your heart forever.
