In Memory of Kristina Cottrell

Kristina Cottrell : May 10, 1971 – May 17, 2011

For 17 years, Kris was the voice of Creative Adoptions. Kris made it all happen at Creative Adoptions and we miss her terribly.

A loving wife, mother, friend, colleague,
Passionate of spirit,
Courageous of heart,
Beautiful of soul,
A lady who was strong, yet not overbearing,
Influential, yet not aware of her inspirational touch,
Who opened a door, when many others were closed
You were a unique woman making a difference in life.

I am grateful to have had a chance to work with you over this past year. I will miss you. May you rest in love and in peace as you now begin your Eternal Life. Forever in our hearts and prayers, as well as your family.

Louise Hamelin Pfeil

"Please pass on my deepest regrets to Kristina's family. She was an awesome person and employee for Creative. I was amazed that she always remembered me whenever I called or emailed....even after 12 years. She was one in a million and will be deeply missed. We are all blessed to have known her."
