We give special thanks to our angels here on earth that went above and beyond caring for Kris and our family. Thank you to the staff at Christus Schumpert Highland ER and ICU. An extra special thanks to the staff at University Health MICU. The care, kindness, and compassion shown to our family by them was incredible. This staff was truly invested in taking care of Kris and our family, and they shared in our overwhelming sadness.
We also want to thank our Summer Grove Pastors and staff, many friends, family, and awesome church family for being at our side day and night and standing in the gap interceding on ours and Kris’ behalf. Everyone rallied around Kris and us and the prayers are felt.
Daddy, we can’t wait to have more shoulder and airplane rides to bed. We will all miss your loud and unique laugh and smile. We will see you again in Heaven, “Big Daddy.”
