Kristy Dykes—wife, mother, and friend

As I have every morning for the past several months, I woke up and headed for my computer to see how my friend Kristy Dykes was doing. I wasn’t surprised, but I was deeply saddened when I learned she passed away yesterday. She was one of the most joyful, truly committed Christians I’ve ever met, and she will be missed by everyone who was fortunate enough to ever be in her presence.

She is survived by her wonderful husband/hero Milton and their beautiful daughters Julie and Jennifer. I remember hearing her talk about her family with pride and love. Through Milton’s posts, I got to know her family even better as they went through this journey with Kristy.

Today is a sad day for people who love Kristy, but it’s a joyful day for her to now be with the Lord.
