We are all completely at a loss for words in the face of the tragic accident which occurred this Christmas Eve, when Krista and four of her friends going for a short flight to Key West crashed shortly after leaving the runway.
She is someone who touched so, so many people every single day---family, friends, students, neighbors alike---and all on top of being a spectacular mother who dedicated every one of her spare seconds to her two beautiful daughters, Lila and Lucy. With her warmth, kindness, generosity, and strength of spirit she managed to put her all into everything she did, without falter, and always with a big smile that none of us will ever forget. It feels completely unreal that a presence like hers would be gone from this earth so suddenly and we are truly heartbroken.
Because she had so many loved ones in so many places---in Florida, Rhode Island and around the world---this GoFundMe is to cover costs of a memorial service in Rhode Island, and transportation for family members traveling for such, so that all family and friends can join together and remember Krista in all her love and light.
We thank everyone who has reached out so far for their outpouring of support and love at this difficult time and you are all with us in our thoughts and prayers.
The Clayton Family and friends
