  1. Oh im so sorry for you loss. She was always so sweet to us when we shopped at tractor supply. My heart goes out to the family.

  2. Kris was a lovely woman. I have the best memories of the times we travelled together to local horse shows. She was such a competent and skilled horsewoman and the horse show children loved her. She was a quiet and calm influence amid the frequent chaos of the horse show barn, and we trusted her 100% to haul and handle our precious horses. Kris was also the best braider and we all got in line to have her braid our horses’ manes for the show ring. Thank you Kris – you probably had no idea how important you were to us in those days. I honor you for your commitment to kindness toward all, and especially your love of and advocacy for horses. Ride free, my friend….

  3. I will miss you…really enjoyed talking to u at store…peace be with you my friend?

  4. Kris and Ray were both very nice to my mom Yvonne who worked with Kris at Tractor Supply. Kris was always pleasant and greeted you with a smile. My deepest sympathies to Ray and her family.
