On Tuesday, June 15, 2010, I attended the funeral for a friend, Kristen Low at Mililani Memorial Park and Mortuary from 5:45 P.M. She leaves a husband, Chris and a young son, Christian.
I first met Kristen when she was in the John A. Burns Medical School with my younger sister Mia. They went to do some medical work for a summer in Japan.
Later when Kristen received her M.D. and began practicing psychiatry, I got to know her better and we became friends. She was friends with my friend Dr. Lori Murayama. I worked with her on some medical issues at the legislature. Kristen also became good friends with Representative Clift Tsuji. She was very supportive of my political endeavors. I liked her a lot because she was so positive and always smiling. She exuded so much great energy. I enjoyed hanging out with her, her husband Chris, Lori, and others at social gatherings. I will miss her.
