The Redneck Girls — Jen, Arianne, Krissy and Casey
I really can’t think of one special moment that I shared with Krissy,
because all of them were very special to me. Kristen was the type of
person who would always make you smile and brighten your day. She would
always be there to laugh or cry with you, or just to listen to you. One
thing I will always remember about her is that no matter what was going
on in her life, she would drop everything just to be there for you.
Krissy and Angela
My most memorable moment with Kristen was when we went to get our
tattoos together. We both wanted the same one, to symbolize our
friendship, which we hoped would last forever—as would the tattoos.
Every day, I look at my tattoo and I love it more each time I see it.
We both decided on the butterfly, then Krissy said, “Let’s get it on
our feet!” So we did, and now I will have a permanent memory of her.
Krissy and I shared so many wonderful times. One of the most precious was
when the two of us went to the Keys for one of her shoots. We had a great
time swimming with the dolphins (our favorite creatures), watching silly movies,
sharing many secrets and simply being ourselves. On the way home, she tried
to talk me into getting a tattoo with her, but I chickened out. Kristen was
such a vivacious, fun-loving person who I am proud to call one of my best
friends. Her memory is forever in my heart.
I have tons of great memories about Krissy. One of my favorites was
around my Prom. We shopped for dresses, shoes, accessories and so much
more. The day of the Prom, I was frantic. Krissy calmed me down and
convinced me to take a nap. When we woke up, we were running a little
late, but Krissy wasn’t worried. She did my hair, nails and makeup.
She didn’t even worry about herself. As a matter of fact, she left her
hair the same way it was while she was sleeping and she still looked
absolutely beautiful. After pictures were over, we left and had a
great time dancing and talking the night away.
A recent memory.... Everyday I remember a different experience I had
with Krissy. One of the latest ones was the time I went to New York for
my cousin’s wedding shower. It just so happens that Krissy and Poppa (Mr.
Taylor) were staying in the city because Kris had a show. When we set plans
to meet at her hotel, I was so excited. It was so cool that I got the chance
to explore New York city with one of my closest friends. We had a great time.
There is one thing in particular that sticks in my mind when I think about
that day. When Krissy and I went to this little Italian restaurant to eat,
a teenaged girl asked the waiter if the lovely girl sitting by me was
Krissy Taylor. The waiter came over to us and introduced this girl to Kris.
The girl then asked if she could take a picture of Krissy to give to her
brother. Krissy, without hesitation, said yes. So the waiter focused in
while I tried to lean out of the picture. Kris yelled at me. She said,
“Oh my Lord, Missy, get in this picture!” I laughed and then smiled, and
then...flash! It makes me wonder if the boy who has this picture realizes
that Kris was not just a beautiful face, she was a great friend. After all,
he has the picture to prove it.
I love you, Krissy. I miss you.
