Kristi is with Jesus

It is with a heavy and sad heart and so many tears that I write this.  Kristi went home to be with Jesus around 7:40 this evening.  She was surrounded by her parents and Justin and was able to spend the afternoon with her brothers. 

Although we are so sad, we KNOW that Kristi is no longer in pain.  After such a long and hard fight, this brings us so much comfort to know she is once again whole.  She is in the presence of Jesus!

Please continue to pray for Justin, Jerrell, and Eli, and the whole Letey family.


  1. Through our tears, we see Kristi's beautiful face smiling that amazing smile looking at Jesus face to face. He must be saying, "Well done my good and faithful servant". We love you all so much and you are in our prayers. A gentle hug to you all this evening. Love, Mark and Marcia VanSkiver.

  2. Praying for Justin, the boys and the rest of Justin and kristis families. She will be missed. I'm sure she already is. Glad she was so surrounded and loved in her last weeks!

  3. Kristi has received her wings and no longer has to 'only imagine'. Justin and Mr. and Mrs. Letey, our thoughts and prayers are with you as you traverse the path that God has set before you. Please know there are many to hold you up when the burden is too great and smile with you as you remember the beauty of Kristi's life. May the Prince of Peace embrace you as only He can. Dear Merciful Father, we pray for strength, rest and courage for the Davis and Letey families and we pray that You will help those of us that stand as support, will be exactly what You need us to be. In Your Precious Sons Name, Amen
    Glen and Angelee Scott

  4. My heart broke as I read that kristi had gone to be with Jesus. I am so thankful that she has a new body now and gets to spend eternity in a place we can only imagine, but I am heartbroken for the loss of an amazing woman, wife, mother and friend. I will always cherish the memories I have of kristi. My prayers are with Justin, the boys, and the rest of their families. Justin, I pray that you will get to see the huge impact kristi made on so many lives around her, not just here on earth but for eternity.
    Love, Betsy

  5. "God is on the side of those who mourn for they will be comforted" may somehow the God who comforts do what only his spirit can do during this time. Our thoughts, meditations, and prayers be with your entire family.

  6. I stumbled across this blog about a month ago after someone put this link on facebook asking for prayer for a dear friend. I read many comments on facebook from various people around Boise who knew Kristi and knew of her love for Jesus. I felt lead to pray for Kristi, even though I have never met I followed the link. I just want you to know that it has been a privilege to pray for you all. So many nights I would read this blog and shed many tears, talking to God. It's hard to understand the ways of God sometimes, and it's hard when you want a miracle so badly and yet somehow in His loving sovereignty, He says no. I can't really describe the depths that my heart is encouraged when I witness believers going through extreme tragedy and come out praising Jesus. It is one of the most beautiful things I can think of and it is only something that can be done in the power of Jesus Christ. This power--HIS power--is displayed in all of you, and most especially in Kristi who was preparing to meet her Maker face to face. This reminds me (and all the rest of the world reading this blog) that God is real, He is true, and even now...He is Good and Faithful. I am overwhelmed tonight for all of you--to imagine the sorrow and the joy you are experiencing, and everything in between. I don't know why God allows some and not others, but I do know that He works through tragic situations so that others may come to know Him, His love, and His truth. It is amazing to me to imagine the thousands of people who have been pointed towards Christ because of your steadfast hope and trust in Him, even in the face of incomprehensible loss and sorrow. You have touched my heart deeply. I know that God is doing an even deeper work in your heart, Justin, in bringing you to a place of letting go your beloved and in giving her to the Lord for His greater purpose and plan. In this obedience and faith, you have come to know Jesus in a more intimate way than some may ever know...and for that you are truly blessed. May you feel His loving arms around you every moment. May your sons find hope that their beautiful Mama is now with Jesus. I ask God to bind the enemy from you, to not allow the evil one to instill any kind of doubt in your heart or your mind. God is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow. His love for you is higher than the greatest heights and deeper than the deepest seas. "Lord my ears have heard of you, but now my eyes have seen...." (Job) May you SEE that He is good and He loves you and your family so much. Let Him carry you when you do not have the strength. Pour out your heart to Him. He is with you. I know He is.

    You will all continue to be in my prayers. Thank you for allowing all your friends, family, and even strangers like myself witness the power of Christ in you. He has overcome...and through Him, so has Kristi. She is at the feet of Jesus and with all the angels is praising HOLY HOLY HOLY IS THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY. I have goosebumps just thinking about it...she is Home.

    Your sister in Christ,
    Kristin Dewey

  8. I consider myself so honored to have some sweet memories of Kristi! She was truly an amazing woman with a visible heart for the Lord and others. It is such a loss to the world we are in, but I can only imagine the celebrations in the Kingdom of heaven. I am so happy for her to be home and to see her Creator face-to-face! I pray for comfort for your family that surpasses understanding. He has continued great plans for you!

  10. "He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away."
