Remembering Our Friend Kris85

It's with an extremely heavy heart and blurry eyes that I have to report that we have lost one of our own here. Kris85, as most of you knew her, or Dara, to those close to her, has passed away suddenly, at the all too young age of 36. I can't believe I have to even write this, but I wanted to say a few things about her.

Dara was my best friend. It feels weird saying that, about a person I never got to meet in person, a person I met over a wacky website like this (which remains my most guarded secret to those I do know in person), someone who I interacted with only through text and a handful of phone calls. I have my inner circle of buddies, and those guys are "best friends" too, but I would without hesitation put Dara in that echelon of friendship.

She came out of nowhere, she just messaged me one day a few years ago saying she thought my posts were funny. We got to talking, and we just never stopped. She told me all about Western Canada where she was from, and I told her all about my hometown of Boston. We quickly found out that we were two peas in a pod, I swear we were practically the same person. We even have the same birthday, just one year apart. And we were both all about the party life. My recent emojis always included ๐Ÿป๐Ÿน๐Ÿ’ƒ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽŠ because of our texts.

I'm in so much pain over this, but the one comfort I can find is that I know she was happy. Her life was going really well. She had divorced a couple years earlier, and to say she was doing well on the open market would be a major understatement. Let's not mince words, she loved to fuck, haha. I'll always remember the weekend morning texts with hilarious messages like "welp...just woke up next to a 19 year old." Chick just always did it big, she was such a badass. Snapchat brought our friendship to another level, as I could see pics of her partying-in-progress, haha. She was also going to school, and was performing very well, and she was excited to embark on a new career path. And she was second to none as a mother. She leaves behind three children: a 9 year old son, and two daughters, 7 and 4. She loved her children so much. That's another thing I loved on Snapchat, her pics of her kids, often with the girls in sassy poses. My heart is absolutely shattered for them, but I know they will be in good hands with their father, aunt, uncle, and grandmother.

As for GAG...well...she's tell you herself that she was kind of a bitch on here, and I thought that was hilarious. She was such a great person, but we both roll our eyes at a lot of the tomfoolery that occurs here, and she never pulled punches in dressing them down, whereas I generally hold my tongue and sent her screenshots or links to stuff and we'd laugh privately. To those of you who gave her shit for sleeping around, I promise you she'd still tell you to fuck off๐Ÿ–• If you were a creepy/thirsty guy, a catfish, or someone fishing for compliments, she would likely roast you. But there were a select few of you that she really liked. I'll tag you guys, but forgive me if I miss anyone, I'm a mess right now.

@BertMacklinFBI @ConsultantIsBack @TwoLips @Shmusername @RedThread @DodgersGM @Ladsin @CupcakeKiller @musicbrain5 @BelleGirl21

Again, sorry if I missed anyone, but you know who you are.

I could go on all night talking about her. She was beautiful, she was smart, she was cool, she was funny, and she was Canadian as FUCK. I'm getting a little overwhelmed here, I'm still in disbelief that I'm writing this, I'm sick to my stomach, so I'll wrap up and just say: Dara, I love you so much, I'm going to miss you terribly, and I feel so blessed to have had this friendship with you, I will never forget you as long as I live. My only regret is that we never got into "shenanigans" together in person. I always imagined us finally meeting at an airport somewhere, engaging in a huge bear hug, and then going on an epic bender and leaving some poor unsuspecting city in ruins. Like you once said though, "we live so far apart because the world couldn't handle so much awesome in one place." But you know that if we ever meet up in that big bar in the sky, the Paralyzers are on me! Rest in peace, buddy, I love you, and thank you for being such a great friend! Hope we see each other somewhere, someday, and shenanigans will ensue! Until then, "later, skater"๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜ญ

  • I have no words. I never really spoke with her, but was impressed and entertained by her "don't give a fuck" attitude. She seemed like a super fun, yet hardworking person. I'm truly saddened by the loss and am keeping those close to her, especially her children, in my thoughts tonight.

    Really well written tribute by the way. Sending hugs and support to you as well. ❤

    • It's awful. Her service is today at 1:00 PM Mountain time. Throw up a thought and/or prayer around that time if you think of it.

  • Damn, this is awful. I didn't speak to her much but I remember seeing her answers and her 'take no shit' attitude and being impressed. Thoughts go out to her kids and the rest of her family, and also to you for your loss <3

  • Just came across this after taking a break. This is horrible :( While I never talked to her, I always appreciated her no-nonsense attitude around here. Even then, it was so apparent how you two hit it off right from the beginning. So sorry for your loss. I hope you are coping well.

    • Yeah, sorry to be the bearer of bad news. I'm past the initial shock but it's still a bummer. I keeping seeing or thinking something and I automatically reach for my phone to text her😢 I just try to remember she'd want me to laugh it up somehow, so I try to just remember the good times. Sucks, but what can you do?😕 Thanks for the kind words, I appreciate them and I know she would too♥️

  • I've actually never interacted with her personally, but enjoyed seeing her sassiness around here. I was hoping before I clicked this that it wouldn't be her death and I was genuinely disappointed in hearing that it was. Death is always a very very sad thing. May she rest in peace.

  • I'm shocked...

    I've seen her around, but I never talked to her. So, we weren't close.
    But still, it's hard to believe.
    She was so young and her kids won't have their mother around, it's sad and painful...

    • Pulmonary embolism. Blood clot from the legs that traveled to her lungs😢

  • Omg I do remember her so well. I sometimes interacted with her in the comments too when a catfish whore shows up. I like how she seemed to be like a genuine Person, and how she seemed to never censor herself, just like me. I never interacted with her in private, but I remember I did like her.

    • That's ok man. I'm not really sure what to say about it either. And it's not like I can go to her memorial service, I have no passport and I don't know her family. This will be weird to process.

    • Show All
    • Seriously. I always told her how amazed I was that she could juggle 3 kids, school, and a full dance card on the weekends. She lived short, but oh so hard👍

    • You actually *can* get a passport in about six hours, if you go to your local (Boston, for you) passport office, line up at the Will Call windows at the crack of dawn, have all yr paperwork in order, and have printed proof of the memorial service ("immediate international travel" is an accepted reason for urgent processing). I think you have to pay something like a $60 expedite fee on top of all the other passport fees, but... yeah. It's not impossible.

      It was a tribute to my friend and fairly active user on here, and it also served as an announcement so those who liked her would know and not be left wondering why she disappeared.

  • 2mo

    Oh, I remember this user. I understand that she's gone now, and I don't want to be "that person", so the less I say about her, the better.

    • 2mo

      Well, I mean, just by saying that you've made yourself "that person", but you've done it under the look of anonymity. Well done👏 But it's all good, she enjoyed trading barbs with the people who didn't like her, she'd actually laugh and laugh that this was posted, so in a way, thanks!👍

    • 2mo

      *under the cloak

  • 2mo

    OMG. I must have missed this when I was on vacation. This is such terrible news.

    Even though I didn't know her well, it's terribly upsetting because I used to see her on here all the time. I was wondering why I haven't seen her around in a while but I just assumed that she was busy or lost interest. We used to cross paths here and there and I always enjoyed our interactions because she was sassy, funny, and quite easy on the eyes. I could tell that we would've gotten along great because of all the hoe jokes we used to make.

    My heart goes out to you, @whitesteve, and especially her children. I wish this wasn't true.

    RIP, Dara :(
