    Kerstin and I always watched our soap opera in the break room at lunch. We always laughed because we could almost guess what was about to happen and say we could write for it if they would let us. I loved her sense of humor and the way she talked about the fun her and Dave had on their cruises and how she talked about how proud she was of her daughter, Shannon! She kept praying for that first grandchild and she finally got him! I can’t tell you the excitement in her voice when she shared that news!! I will miss my friend so much. Sending lots of thoughts & prayers to her family.

    Kerstin was a dedicated part of the Texas Tech Police Department. She was our head organizer, using her instinctive, German efficiency. She knew and trained me in many security assets that a guard had to know. She knew things that my supervisors didn’t so she was one of those valuable assets herself. She taught us a few German sayings and words that I still know. She loved to set sail so much, she is on a final journey now. God bless Dave and family.

    We will always cherish the good times and precious moments we got to share with Kerstin and her family. Continued prayers and our deepest condolences going out to her loved ones during this time. She will forever be in our hearts.

    Kerstin was the strongest person I know and the most loyal friend anyone could ask for. I learned so much from her and I am honored to be able to call her friend. I miss her terribly but rest better knowing she isn’t hurting any longer. Love you my, my friend. Until we meet again.

    I have known Kerstin and her family for 20 plus years. It almost seemed like when the military moved one of our families the other would soon follow. She was alway upbeat and had a strong positive outlook on things. She was the first person we thought of to ask to be the Godmother of our first grandson Michael. I can recall the excitement and look on her face and she immediately accepted. Kerstin you and Dave have been good friends of the family and words can’t describe how much you will be missed. We will continue to keep Dave and Shannon and her family in our prayers. God Bless!
