RICHARDSON, Kristen Elizabeth-Age 22 of Hendersonville, TN passed away April 28, 2012 from complications due to a house fire. Kristen was a fierce young woman of faith. She loved God so much and had knowledge and understanding of HIM and HIS kingdom way beyond her 22 years. Kristen walked this world with a kind and loving heart, never casting judgment only giving love. Kristen loved her family and friends with her entire being, and always wore an electric smile. Kristen made us laugh and giggle till it hurt; she was truly a bright light in this dark world. As we watched her in her life, her special spirit and selfless way of living, reminded us all to slow down and truly enjoy each moment. Kristen loved being with children and enjoyed each child and she noticed each sweet and special gift each child had. Above all our sweet Kristen was just a breath of fresh air. She will be missed terribly by many. Kristen will be noticed in every beautiful thing. She will surround us all with light and warm us when we feel alone, she will be in every beautiful song, every sound of laughter, every dance she will be dancing with us and guiding us to do good with our time here. We love u baby girl. She is survived by her father, John Richardson of Macon, GA; step-mother, Betty Richardson of Macon, GA; mother, Lisa Earles of Hendersonville, TN; step-father, George Earles of Hendersonville, TN; brothers, Kyle Richardson and Landon Stephens; sisters, Anitra Lawson Ron, Courtney Thompson, Arrin F.

    I knew Kristen from Good Shepherd United Methodist Church. She and my daughter Amy were in the same life group together. I was able to work with Kristen in a small women’s chorus they sang in one year for a Valentine’s Banquet at Good Shepherd. She was such a delight and I will never forget her sweet smile and the way she lit up a room! My thoughts and prayers are with you.

    Kristen, you’ll forever be a shining star. Lisa, I can’t imagine the pain you’re feeling. I’ll be praying along with Mary and the rest of our family for healing and that Kristen is at peace. She’ll never be forgotten.

    Ionly met kristin a couple of times, but she worked with my daughter natasha and tots landing and tash thought the world of her and so did my grandbabies. I have only heard stories of what a great and caring person she was. My daughter is so heart broken. I have been praying for her and I requested prayer at my church yesterday for a peace and comfort for all of you. I feel that in my heart Kristen is now a new angel in heaven. I pray this will be a wake up call for all of that knew her to realize life is short and take time to let those we care about , know how much they mean to them. May Kristens love for God be come known to all those that don,t have him in their lives, I know that would be what she would want. My prayer is that God will put His arms around all of you and give you comfort and strength.

    Kristen was a wonderful person, and tried harder than most to be that person. The world was a better place with her in it. She will be greatly missed, but never forgotten.

    Kristen is truly the most amazing person that I have ever met in my entire life! She has been there for me through everything for 15 years, that’s longer than ANYBODY! I am honored to be able to call her my best friend and name my daughter after her. Kristen will live on through every person that she has touched with her beautiful smile and personality…you will be forever missed baby girl and will remain in my heart! I miss you already! God gained an amazing and beautiful angel! My heart goes out to Miss Lisa, Nanny, Kyle, and the rest of her family. I love you all!

    Someone said…
    “You never loose the one you love as long as you love the one you lost.”
    It’s just words, but Kristen is now a priceless treasure in the hearts she touched.
    You’re in all our thoughts and prayers.

    Kristen, you didn’t only make a difference in the lives of the people you lived near. You left your spirit here in Guatemala when you visited. You made a difference in the lives of my girls and boys here. You were changing the world. With every beautiful time you smiled you lifted a spirit. You lifted mine many times, and that is something that I will be forever grateful for. I will love you and miss you until I am standing beside you again. Gracias y te amo Kristen.

    I am so deeply sorry for such a great loss! I love this family so much and they have a bond like no other. I haven’t ever met such great people who are so warm and welcoming and love and accept people without judgement or hesitation! May they teach others to never forget the small things in life and let us all learn that life is too short to not love with all we have and with open arms as they have taught me! I only met Kristen once and saw her maybe a couple of times but she was always so sweet and welcoming! May you all heal from your pain and know that she is no longer in pain. There are really no words to describe what I wish I could say! Love and time will heal all wounds and I know that at a time like this it is inevitable to feel broken but know you have ALL touched a lot of us in many happy and positive ways. I love you all!
