Krista Lee Konyot - Kashnig

Daughter, sister, person beyond measure

My daughter Krista filled my world with such joy and fear. The day came when the worst happened. She forever changed me and made me a better person. She left behind a sister, her best buddy, a stepdad, a grandmama, many other relatives, and friends. A world and life that she should be sharing with us today and tomorrow. A crippling anxiety, eating disorder, the disease of addiction all on her shoulders - our most beloved and missed Krista. With all of this she loved, she cared, she laughed, she cried, she tried, she succeeded, she fell, she tried again and again. Her favorite quote from The Little Prince encapsulates her so well, “It is only with the heart that one can see rightly what is essential is invisible to the eye.” Krista, the heart and soul of our family. This is who she was, who she is to us.
