I'm so very sorry - I'm so sorry. I heard about this on the news. I hope she meets Helen Hill in heaven. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Helen_Hill - I bet they would get along very well.

I have heard wonderful things about a beautiful person taken from this world far to soon. I hope that all who visit this site learn that good can be done in the time we all have here. My niece, Abigail, shared a bit of her feelings about Kirsten with me.

10-19-2008 7:28 PM -- By: Ken Largman,  From: San Francisco  

I asked Kirsten, if she could do anything with her life, what she would like to do. Her primary answer was: To use her life to accomplish the greatest good she could accomplish.

What an amazing and wonderful person. I had hoped to work with her on a joint project in the coming months. If there are other people who share her vision and want to help carry-on her works, please be in touch.

To Kirsten's family: I am so terribly sorry for this senselessness, no one should have to endure such a loss as you have. I did not know Kirsten but from what I have read and heard she was an amazing young lady! You are in my prayers! Solange Morrissette

So, so sorry about your loss. May you find comfort in God and those who mourn alongside you.

I didn't know Kirsten personally, but something about her spirit shines through in the words that she wrote and the causes that she fought for. It is inspiring to see young people standing up for things that really matter in this world, and it is tragic that her life was cut so short. It reminds me, though, that a life cannot be measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the number of moments that take our breath away. It looks like Kirsten had many of those moments. My thoughts and prayers are with her family. Peace.

Although I am in no way connected to the Brydum family I am neverthless stunned and saddened by this unimaginable tragedy. The journals posted reveal a highly intelligent and committed young woman. How do you deal with the monstrous grief? I do not pretend to offer an answer. But somehow I hope her brief life will not have been lost in vain. May your tears ultimately bring you comfort.

Kristen and I had a few classes together. We chatted a few times and I am really shocked to hear about this tragedy. She was a great person and I admired her passion for different causes.

I never knew Kirsten but her beautiful journey has touched and inspired me to continue my own activism. I am 62 and the mother of a daughter named Yuri. We are both believers in volunteer ism. Kirsten was a very precious soul who has left a huge hole in our universe. Please know that my thoughts and prayers will be with you and I will always be here for you in any way needed. Love, Ruth

Our hearts and souls grieve for the loss of a gentle spirit, taken from us far too soon.

10-16-2008 12:07 PM -- By: Kathleen Bell,  From: Montgomery Village MD  

I was thrilled to meet so many cousins recently, among them Kirsten's mother Mamie. This tragedy simply breaks my heart. I hope they find the perpetrator(s) and rehabilitate him/her/them so that their view of life is as positive as Kirsten's was. I'm sure she would have wanted that.

Love to the whole family and especially my friend Mamie -

I never knew Kirsten though John Viola is one of my oldest friends. I really enjoyed seeing him light when i asked to recount his first time meeting, or rather seeing, Kirsten.

We are all dreadfully sorry for you loss.

We are friends of Kirsten's fiancee and learned about it even here in California. As parents of a 28 yr old girl we are shocked and saddened by this most devastating loss from such a senseless violent crime.

Our prayers are with her family to support them in their grief. We hope for some that they may cope with her passing.

Steen, Mamie, Erika, Words do not describe the sadness that came with this knowledge. We are so sorry to hear of your loss, please know you are in our thoughts.

My deepest condolences to Helen, Mamie, Steen and Erika. My relation to Kirsten is distant (1st cousin, twice removed), but on a family tree, we're all connected and when one is gone, we all feel the loss. God bless you all.
