"A true friend unbosoms  freely, advises justly, assists readily, adventures boldly, takes all patiently,
defends courageously, and continues a friend unchangeably."

William Penn

Kristine's friendship with me is one that I cherish wholeheartedly. The simplicity and purity of her perspectives have grown me in ways that I never expected, and they have reminded me that life really is more fun when you share it with a friend. We always joke that our friendship was sparked from complete spontaneity because our personalities are world's apart, but I'm beyond thankful to see that it didn't stop us from pursuing a friendship. It's been a huge blessing to watch Kristine grow into the beautiful woman that she is today, and I know that regardless of what her future will look like, it will always be bright and joyous. 

Thank you, Kristine, for teaching me how to love and be loved by others because that was always demonstrated in your friendship with me. Thank you for all the late night talks and laughter, your tears of joy and grief, and your constant reminders that you value me as your friend. May these pictures serve as precious reminders of your college career and the sweet times we've shared together.
