  1. Ma and Pa Krest took in many strays over the years; I was one of them. I was blessed that Ma took me under her wing as a teenager and treated me like the daughter she never had. She not only raised three boys, but myself as well. I’m truly grateful for having such a wonderful mother in-law for so many heartfelt years. May the saints be with Ma Krest.
