I’m just seeing this, and on behalf of me and dad (Dave Pusa) we want to send our deepest sympathies. Kristen a d I had connected a few years back, and I enjoyed getting to catch up with her in our adult years. We had great memories from when we were kids. We are sending so much love & prayers Ken & Vickie. This is devastating ❤️
My condolences to the family. Thoughts and prayers. R.I.P.
Dear Ken and Barb,
Max and I send our very deepest condolences. We remember like yesterday all of the many fun and family times we all had together! Kristen and Kevin were always so cute and so nice to be around. It just, as a parent, does not seem fair to lose a child ahead of ourselves!
May God Bless you all and may Kristen rest now in Peace.
Lots of love from the entire Lummis family. We all need to reconnect asap!
Connie and Max Lummis
I am so sad to hear of her passing. I am sorry for all of your losses. I spent many hours with her in the car on the way to school in high school and also at her house after school for many years. My deepest condolences to the entire family. Jennifer Griesedieck
I am Evan Kopald. My son Ryan S Kopald, 56, left us on 2/20/21. I understand what you must be feeling. .I continue to come to grips with his absence. It is not easy. It’s a lump in my throat that won’t go away. If you care to see a memorial tribute for him, go to you-tube and type in his name + memorial for.
