“I should live a little more, like this awesome girl I met in Mexico does.” – Kirsti Jennae

Dear Anna,

It’s hard to make a lasting impression on people, especially when you haven’t had much time to get to know them. It may sound odd to say I thought of you often; someone I had only known for a short period of time while we were both in Oaxaca Mexico with CFHI. We followed each other on social media and it felt like you were always posting a new adventure, and with every post I thought “I should live a little more, like this awesome girl I met in Mexico does.” One night, when we were out to dinner, you said to me that even though we just met, even if we don’t communicate again for years, if I ever found myself in Southern California to hit you up and I would always be welcome to stay over with you. You were one of the coolest individuals I’ve had the pleasure of meeting and I envisioned one day contacting you when I visited California – even if you totally didn’t remember who I was. When I found out about your passing I felt a denial that I wouldn’t run into you again one day or see anymore of your adventures on instagram. My heart goes out to your family and friends who truly we able to have you in their lives. I am sure there are many other “strangers” out there like me whose lives you’ve touched, and mostly I just want to say I’m glad I met you. Rest In Peace. ❤️

– Kirsti
