The Story

Kristina Joy Smith died on January 6th 2015 due to complications from septic shock after being in the ICU of Kendal Regional Hospital in Miami, Florida since December 12th 2014.

Kristina was born in Mesa, Arizona and was a graduate of Dobson High School. She would have been 38 years old in 2015. Kristina is survived by her mother Sandra Smith and brother Greg Smith. Her father James Smith died in 2009.

She moved to the Florida Keys with her boyfriend Ray about two years ago. They moved there in the hopes of finding paradise (and soon found that it was far from). Kristina and Ray were just starting to get comfortable with their situation and trying to make a life there. They would go fishing right out of their back door and bring in dinner several times a week.

Besides funeral expenses, Kristina's mother and brother occurred significant travel related expenses because they lived in Arizona and New Mexico respectively. Total costs are estimated to be about $6000.

It's not easy to ask for money in a situation like this and we would be very grateful for any donations. Donations would first be used to pay for funeral expenses, then travel and anything left would go Kristina's mom.

Mom and I are amazed by everyone's support and generosity. I know the fund raiser has not reached is goal but every little bit helps and it really brings some happiness to an otherwise terrible situation. I’m updating the end date of the fund raiser to Feb 21, which is the day of Kristina’s memorial in Arizona.

Again thank you everyone for your support.
