I am so sorry for your loss. Kristin was such a good friend to me. I have so many happy memories of her. And although I haven't spoken with her in years, she has always been in my heart and thoughts. She had such a big heart and I loved her very much. I will keep her and her family in my thoughts and prayers. May you find peace in this very sad moment. We have an angel watching over us now.

- Crisel Smith, Savannah, GA

Our dear Northup family will be complete when we welcome Kristin back in paradise. You held her in your arms ; always in your heart , and will for eternity in paradise. We have eternity in our hearts, so we eagerly await that blessing. Our amazing Drs keep us here as long as possible; Almighty God will keep us alive forever, including our wonderful doctors. This is so heart breaking. Never intended, but with a bad choice Adam handed this down to us :Romans 5:12. It has been reversed with Christ’s sacrifice. Kristin is coming back, when called: Job 14:14 We will remember her forever. God will bring her back in the miracle of the resurrection Isaiah 26:19. I am so very sorry ; as a Dr. , this has to be beyond belief. Please let “Enjoy Life Forever”, JW.org be of comfort to you. Sincere heart felt condolences, Sandy Wirfs

I am so terribly sorry to hear this about Kristin. We spent so many years growing up together in lower and middle school. I have so many fond memories of us swimming in the pool and jumping on the trampoline together. She was always such a great athlete and so fun to be with. My prayers are with you and the rest of your family during such hard times.

Dear Millie and John, We are so sorry for the loss of your daughter Kristin. You are in our Thoughts and Prayers. Love , Anneliese & Erich

To her family: I went to middle school with Kristin. I was the new kid in 6th grade. She was always kind to me. She was a tough competitor in sports- we played basketball together. But she had her teammates’ backs. She was never pretentious, and would chat with anyone! I’m so deeply sorry for your loss. I am praying for you right now.

I carry the fondest memories of Kristin, growing up next door, and will keep the Northup family close in thought as you journey through your time of loss.

Dr. & Mrs. Northrup, John, and Allison, Teeny & the Twins. I have just found out about Kristin's passing and to say I'm completely heartbroken would be the greatest understatement. I can only imagine how you all must feel. I've spent the last 2 days trying to figure out what to say and I'm still not sure of what it should be. All I know is the world has unknowingly suffered a great tragedy with the loss of my life long friend and soul sister, Kristin Ross. While there were many times I referred to her as the "Sister I never wanted" at the end of the day she was still my SISTER. We had quite our share of adventures and experiences, many great, some quite a bit less than, but nevertheless, at the end of the day we were there for each other. I'm truly sorry I wasn't there this time. I pray God places his loving arms around all of you to bring comfort and peace. I will ALWAYS cherish the memories we all share, from the bridge, the countless sleepovers, the newspaper articles we had to report on to get "the magic ticket" for Showbiz, all the summers in the pool, and Christmas cookie baking parties.... I could go on and on. I love you all as family of my own. With deepest regret and all my love, Lila Spivey aka "Thumper"
