LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. —
AUTHOR'S NOTE: My cousin, Kristiana Banks, for whom so many readers have been praying and sending cards, went to be with The Lord on Thursday, Dec. 6. Readers may rest assured that the huge outpouring of well wishes they sent to her were received with joy and delight. Kristina worsened late Wednesday night and was placed on a ventilator. She left this life a short time later. Please pray now for her family, especially her parents, Ronnie and Fanny Banks, who never gave up hope until there was nothing left for which to hope. Your cards and letters to Kristiana will always be a comfort to them, as they were to this sweet young woman.
