Repost from my sister @alysongilles: "Almost 40 years ago, my family moved in across the street from the Erling family. That day, we didn't just get new neighbors, we immediately gained a sister and two brothers, Kristin, Tim, and Scotty. Two years ago, our Kristin was diagnosed with cervical cancer. She fought like hell, but last month, it was time to rest. This weekend, we all traveled back to California and we celebrated our Kristin's beautiful, but too brief life. We cried, for sure, but the laughter...Man, the laughter...THAT was who my sister was. Because in sunshine, laughter, and gurgling fountains, in rainbows and cupcakes and hidden Mickey's, the holy presence that is my sister, my Kristin, will live forever."
