My name is Karen and I was a childhood friend of Kristy's. I just thought of her out of the blue today after not seeing her for more than 20 years. I tried to find her and was sad to see she had a troubled life since I'd seen her last and has also past away since. We went to grade school for a few years together and she lived across the street from me in NY. Although she did not have many friends I thought she was a great person and we had a lot of good times together. I wish I could have kept in touch with her.
