Kristine, also known to her many friends on these threads as FBB, passed away on July 22. She was loved by so many, showed true courage, strength, humour and compassion for others, even in her own personal darkest, scariest times. She will truly be missed.

I was a very close friend of Kristine for 26 wonderful years.   You should send it to her family . I think her daughter would like it.

I walked into my friend's bathroom and came to face with the "angry bluebird" photo that was an avatar in Kristine's honor sometimes. Wow, I miss her.

She is indeed missed by many. I sent that painting to her family, and got a lovely thank you card from her husband. I thought that was super sweet of him to take the time to do that. 

I wish I would have been able to meet FBB in person.  she really was so sweet and supportive here on the boards and I can just imagine how lucky those that were an "in-person" part of her life must feel to have known her. 

Life is way too short.

I still think of her, too. She made such a beautiful impact on so many and left too soon. There is a Coldplay song about love and birds and I always think of her when I hear it
