Those who knew Kristen recall her stories beginning with “You know how she is, I’m not saying anything bad, I’m not gossiping but…”. She was a great story teller. Always knew what to tell you. If you were sad, she had great jokes to make you laugh; if you were upset, she said all the right things to make you feel better. If she was upset, your conversation with her ended in laughter, always making light of any situation. Even when she was upset at her family, it was who she called first when she was in a bind. Never shy to speak to anyone, or make new friends she embraced you. She was spontaneous, a risk taker. Although great qualities to have they also shrouded her ability to listen to common sense and the reason she is not here with us today, for this she has become our spirit teacher. She will be dearly missed by her husband Abdo Grayman and her daughters Ameena Grayman, Tabina Grayman, whom she loved with all her heart. Her mother Lorraine Dillon, her sisters Shannon, Anita, Ashley, April and brother Keegan will never forget her.
