Driving through Forks last month, for probably the last time, and 96.7 'Twilight' just happened to play 'Pocketful of Sunshine'. Brought both a smile and a lump in the throat. RIP Kris. Thoughts with the family.

Hello Kris, it's been awhile since I've visited here.

I've been thinking about you a lot today. I have a lot to thank you for, you know? I wouldn't be who I am today if it weren't for you. I'm grateful for the low and kindness you showed me.

Guess I just wanted to stop by and say I have not forgotten you, and I never will.

I miss you lots.

Dear Kris,

For some reason I could not get you out of my mind today. I was driving around Lake Crescent, thinking about how many times our lives intertwined.

The first time I met you, you were returning from a ski trip and rescued me from a Search and Rescue vehicle at the top of Fairholm. A year or so later I pulled a 2-year-old Whitney from the waves at Rialto. Then Whitney was in my Girl Scout troop for 5 years. You and I did dog training exercises together. And frequently we would run into each other when you were on patrol and I was out mountain biking. You made me feel safe in the forest knowing you were taking care of things.

Before I got all the way home to Forks, "Pocket Full of Sunshine" came on the radio. I couldn't believe it! I hadn't heard that song for years. What a coincidence--or a sign?? I will always remember how Whitney choose that song for your memorial.

Whitney, if you are reading this, you are in my prayers, always & forever. You, too, Kris.

God Bless,
Becky Dickson

A civilian friend.

She is not forgotten. I liked the fact she was protecting the forests for, and from all of us, while protecting the creature who live there.

Best wishes to her family. Also to her old friends and coworkers.
