She was a self taught seamstress even making her own wedding dress! I remember her making this dress vividly as we had the privilege of her living with us for a few years when we were kids. After she married and had her own kids we still saw each other almost every weekend! We have such great memories of those weekends! I'm so glad we got that time with her.
Her very last text to me was her asking about Jocelyn. She was sick and yet she is asking about Jocelyn. She was so selfless and always willing to help anyone no matter what time of night it was or what they needed.
We love you Merri Kristen....AKA Aunt Kristi! You are with Grandma Jane now!!
Update: Added Photos from the Memorial Service 2 wks after Kristi passed away.

After Jocelyn's surgery in July to get her tonsils out, she started having a lot more reflux issues! She was throwing up every day there for awhile after she had started school. Our ENT had us go back to her GI dr. She had not seen him since she was 3. So he immediately ordered 2 test. One being the stomach emptying test (above) and then the 2nd was an endoscope. The 1st test was torture trying to get her to eat but she finished the test! It shows her stomach has severe digestive delay. It took over 200 minutes to finish those eggs and toast. Which the dr said it 3 times longer than a normal stomach. So the stomach continues to produce acid over and over. She had scar tissue from the acid in her throat already.
