Kristi, you have been in my thoughts and prayers since I heard about the tragic accident your beautiful baby girl was in. Your baby is a couple of weeks older than my mine and I can't imagine the pain and heartache you're going through but my heart is heavy for your loss. I never knew you or her but from what my mother, Janet Medina tells me, I know she was your best friend and she sounded like a sweetheart. You'll forever be in my thoughts and prayers and I'll never forget the imagine or smile of your beautiful redheaded Amber. God bless you.

Amber was a fine young lady who had the world in her hands, she was beautiful, intelligent, loyal and honest. She was alot like her grandfather whom I have always called Roz. It is confusing wondering why this was in God's plans, but it is not our place to understand. Amber will be sorely missed. Fly free Amber. Xoxo
