I am priveleged to have known a vibrant, strong woman. I looked forward to my weekly visits to Ms. Kraus as her nurse and friend. She always had a story about her family and how much she loved and worried for them. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
Mrs Kraus was very near and dear to my heart. I worked with her last year and I adored her. I never met anyone like her. She was very kind, sweet, loving and tuff! Her strengh to fight for what was right was refreshing, amazing at her age, and often times very funny. She Loved her family very much and she talked about them often. She exspecially fussed over her ‘fat cat’ and often called for back up in her investigations/quest for information with pat. She would say’ i got the right person to get on them, that pat will take care of it, she knows what to do!’. She truly was a rare gem I am going to miss her spunk, her laugh, and her wisdom. She changed my life and I will never forget her. In conclusion, Family please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you, and remember she lives on in our hearts. if there is anything i can do please do not hesitate to call me.
My aunt was a person of eloquence with a gentile, loving spirit. I will always remember her thoughtfulness and love. We will miss her very much.
