I remember Krysia (Chris) all the back to Kindergarten.  And I remember sitting really close to watch TV all the while pushing my front teeth forward so I could wear glasses and braces just like Krysia. I worked so hard to keep my grades up to her standard.  It saddens me that we lost touch and now she is gone.  RIP, Krysia - My Idol.

What a sad, miserable start to Friday in learning of Krysia's passing.  Shocking but not all that surprising given our conversations and updates since the 50th class reunion.  The real regret is that while we stayed in contact, it wasn't as frequent, constant or often as I now wish it had been. 

We shared the same birthday and often disagreed who was the oldest--I think we agreed that I could have that honor but I'm fairly sure by her wisdom, maturity, success and accomplishments, she lived and demonstrated the qualities of someone much more "with it" than I was so she was truly the older soul.

I have pictures of us dressed up as we double-dated for Homecoming, Proms and other more casual events through-out our junior and senior years and during our 4 years at NIU. 

Krysia will always be one of the good, kind, serious when appropriate, joyful virtually constantly, a good friend, a loyal friend, a good listener, a good "counselor" and someone you just knew you could trust.

She will be missed but not forgotten.

Krysia was a wonderfuly woman.  We met in 8th grade at Harrison Grade School in Wonder Lake. She was a blessing to me; Krysia helped me study for my Civic Test and pass 8th grade; She was dependable and loving;​​​ She was someone I always looked up to and admired; very sweet, smart, honest, friendly, helpful and a Godly woman. 

I enjoyed serving with her on our MCHS Class reunion teams; She hosted many reunion team meetings and was very gracious.  She called classmates and encouraged them to come to the events.

She and Phil helped me when my basement flooded and chopped wood in my back yard after the storm.

She will be missed by all.

What a sad, sad day to learn to Chris's passing. I so much enjoyed renewing our friendship at the 50th class reunion. I remember Chris always as kind-hearted and fun. She will be missed, but to echo Fred's sentiment, not forgotten.
