I never knew you but your influence and love for life has been shown to me through your family.Mainly Erika and Anja of whom i consider amazing women that carry your flame endlessly.

May they be comforted today.

So loved and so missed by all, Tuda

Five years and even more than that since I saw you last and sometimes the memories flood my brain and my heart feels like it will explode. It's not getting any easier missing you, but we continue the fight to find justice for being robbed. Getting closer, missing you more and more, getting closer. Such an amazing effect you have had on all of us, my love. I still would like to close my eyes and not wake up.

To Lille Kirsten. I don't write too much, but I think about you very often. "Little Kirsten" being here with Farfar and me, sharing my cozy chair, reading a story, playing with Farfar, going on trips with us. And "teenage Kirsten", being in Denmark with us, going to school there. And then "grown-up Kirsten" doing all the wonderful things you did for so many. It is all beautiful memories I will never forget. Miss you and Farfar every day. Love from your Farmor.

As we head toward that awful date I have to marvel in the midst of my tears at the amazing journey I have and am experiencing because of YOU my wonderful, brilliant little one. Little only in physicality. And for those who say I am channeling your energy, I say they are right. Because I know you knew how much you were and still are loved SO much. Your light will never dim in my eyes. I've learned so much from you. Miss you my baby.

Bitter blessing, sweet curse. First forever friend, breathing deep within my core. If I am still I can still hear the chimes of your laugh and see the lines etched in skin, always older than your years; now your years will never grow. But I grow, and this rock spins, and the days are waning shorter (which reminds me that we are getting closer). I chase my mind as it wanders nearer to you -- what would you say? Where would you be? The rest of my life will roll onward without you and it is right to sit here sometimes with that sadness. There is no guilt from things unsaid -- you knew me, I knew you -- and that is enough. When I need the feather pressure of your palm on my arm, it is there. When I need to be reminded to rise, to rejoice, your tiny frame (now endless) does the heavy lifting. We have taught each other, we teach each other, and we will always be teaching each other how to hold those you love so tightly in your heart that they never really disappear. Gone, gone, so far gone, all the way gone, hallelujah.

She looks nice, but I personally think it suits her much betetr when her hair is a little longer. You, on the other hand, pull off short hair much betetr. You really have the right face for it!

Dear Kirsten. I am thinking about you today as we approach the 5th anniversary of that terrible day. We all miss you so much. But we continue to find strength and encouragement through the wonderful postings on this beautiful site -- postings that reflect just how many hearts and minds you have influenced by the shinning example of your all-too-brief life. We will love you forever.

It is 2013, and I just read Kirstens story. I don't know why I am so touched. Maybe because I recognize myself in that young woman taken away from the world before her time. A young lady who went alone into the world.

May she never be forgotten...

I just came across Kirsten's story today. I am deeply saddened. She was a classmate with my son at Pinecrest. My deepest sympathy to the family.

We are all in this together! Thank you you for all that is!

hello Missing you terribly. Love you forever

my sweet little one, how you are missed! Yesterday was worse than today for the very strange reason that our mutual figure of HOPE was inaugurated again and I feel like your spirit was there as well, reiterating that We're All In This Together. And it's happening! Rest in Peace my love. Miss you so much.

With a heart full of love, and a mind reeling with good intentions, it doubles the tragedy of Kirsten's death. May God bless her family and give them peace.

Kære lille Kirsten. Today would have been your 30th. Birthday, how sad we can't all celebrate it together. I think about you and Farfar very often,  and I  miss you a lot.  With love from your Farmor.

Looking through this is such a tragic journey...your girl was such a brilliant light...it will burn on forever...may your hearts find peace.

I came across Kirsten's story in 2008. How do you feel such love, such connection with someone you have never met? After reading about her life and death and the words of her loved ones, I wrote, "I don't want to waste my days, my moments, no more petty, useless thoughts, but magnanimously kind and strong action." Tonight I was feeling so far from the spirit, from humanity, and I reread my journal and those words, and I came to look for her for inspiration. I feel reminded. She has done so much for so many, even from the other side. A huge thank you and LOVE to all.

Lovely Kirsten, Another year has passed without you. You are missed so by everyone. Unfortunately, no justice for you yet. Love, Far.

A very difficult and painful day for them to get through, precious Angel my heart goes out to your family during this painful time.

Dear sweet cousin Kristen ...you are gone but will never be forgotten. Come visit me in my dreams and lets catch up on what you are doing ... I believe you have done wonderful things in heaven! Love and Hugs

So 'that day' is coming up again my love. Every morning I get up and force myself through the day. Lately I have been telling myself that your spirit is pushing me forward. I have to believe. Miss you SO MUCH. <3

Visiting New Orleans for work & it made think of you. Rest in peace.

04-12-2012 11:20 PM -- By: Nancy O'Connor,  From: San Francisco,Ca  

I have hardly no words after reading her wonderful journal entry's, just an overwhelmingly sense of LOSS. Kirsten was a beautiful person, writer, adventurer, activist etc, with a bright and shining Aura! I wonder if she worked at the St. Francis in SF, I think she may have waited on me. I know she is shining somewhere as bright as can be.

My condolences to her family and friends everywhere. I wish I had met her, got to know her.

03-17-2012 11:29 AM -- By: Joshua M Taht,  From: Brooklyn, NY  

I will never forget the happiness the Kirsten brought to my life, nor the sadness when she left it. My condolences and deepest sympathies go to her mother, father and sister, and the family I never met. I can't imagine the shock and the pain her loss has brought, as I only knew her for a few years. I'm sorry I only recently could look up her name online, however, I am glad to see the number of visits this site has received. She will be remembered by many.

Having the hardest time tolerating Cajun music but I know you would tell me to enjoy it. Trying to hard to celebrate you and deal with the pain, still.

May your soul rest in peace
