I came across a memory of Miss Snyder recently and thought about her. I remember every morning of fifth grade, me and my best friend would always give her a big hug walking to class. She painted my nails for fifth grade grad and would sometimes pull me aside just to have conversations. At the time she had felt like an older sister to me. She was also the person who told me that the word “greatful” was not actually spelled “grateful” which she told me that after I showed her a slideshow I made for her, for her birthday to show how “grateful” I was for her. I’m now in 10th grade❤️ I will try to link the slideshow I had made for her birthday but I’m not sure if you will be able to access it.

It's so hard knowing that she pasted. It's that kinda thing that you don't want to Realize and you want to keep telling yourself that she's not gone when she is. You don't even know how good of a person she was. She was like a sister or a family member to everyone. And for the people that didn't know her, I am so sorry for you cause she was just a amazing person. I am so glad that I had a teacher so amazing. I really wish she could just come back but god said it was her time to go.I wish I could have said goodbye. I remember the last time I saw her she visited and watched one of my games cause I cheer. That just made me so happy to see her. I love you Ms.Snyder.

Dear Snyder Family, I wanted to pass along my condolences to you, and let you know that I am keeping you in my thoughts and prayers. From the 8 years of schooling together at MAA and to the many summers we worked together at the Chesapeake Inn, Kristen truly left a lasting mark on me and my family. Kristen had an innate ability to connect with others and make everyone feel accepted. I am devastated that I wasn't able to attend the service in person, but I hope you know that I am thinking of you and the whole MAA community from Denver as we mourn her loss.

I have no words to adequately express how deeply sorry I am for your loss. I had many classes with Kris at UD, and we had our first student teaching experience at Edison Charter together. She was always friendly, inspiring, and helpful. I am so proud to have known her and to have seen the amazing teacher she became. My love, thoughts, and prayers are with you all.

I have such fond memories of Kristen, Nicki and Robbie when my niece Meg was their baby sitter. Kristen was a warm, sweet, bubbly little girl who clearly adored her brother and sister. Words are inadequate to express the sadness and sorrow that I feel at her loss.

As I look at Kristen's beautiful photo, I can hear her distinctive and contagious laugh. Through my tears, I smile. We love you, Snyder family, and we'll continue to hold you close in prayer and Kristen close in our hearts.

To teach children is to touch lives in ways that most people can't. Kristen had the kind of special qualities that enabled her to not only teach her students in ways to best help them learn, but also connect with them in ways that supported their emotional and social well-being. She was supportive, energetic, hard-working, caring, enthusiastic, loving, smart, and tireless...all the qualities that make a special teacher, a special person. She will be greatly missed by her Bay View family but will always be with us.
Rose Schmoker left a message on May 22, 2020:

Steve Brot left a message on May 22, 2020:
Words can not even begin to express my sorrow for your loss. Although I did not know Kristen, everything I see makes her so special. It takes a special type of person to educate others, and an even different person to educate people with special needs. G-d bless and watch over Kristen and the Snyder family.

Maryanne Rich Nicole and Rob, as a grandmother and having gone to all the volleyball games at MAA, to watch my grand daughters play, I came to know Kris and Nicole so well that they would call me Mom-Mom, and playing in High School if they saw me they would come over and give me a big hug. They were so very close to heart and you are realty great parents. God Bless you all. Judy Guy and all the Guy Families.

Rich and Maryanne, There is no greater grief than the grief of losing a child. Kristen was an amazing women and she touched so many in her life. She will have an impact on many for years to come. Her spirit lives in each of us who knew her and appreciated the person she had become. She always had a smile for you and a caring glance to all of our family. Rob and Nicki, Your sister will live with you forever in the shared memory of your childhood and someday in the children you will have. Always know she will always be by your side. With deepest sympathy, Chris and Norma Locke

Hello Snyder's, I wanted to say that I am so sorry to hear the news about Kristen. My heart is with you all during this tough time. Kristen was such a kind hearted soul, and a friend to all of us at MAA. I have so many great memories of her awesome birthday parties at your house while we were in grade school. Her smile was contagious and she was always so positive and welcoming. My family and I are thinking of you all and sending love.

Although it is tough to believe that someone with such a vibrant and colorful soul had to leave the rest of us behind, I truly believe it was God's plan.

All my love

Kris, you are Forever loved by so many. More than you can imagine. You will be missed dearly friend. Heart of gold and smile as bright as sunshine. Thank you for your endless advice, shared laughter, sassy humor and thank you for always knowing how to cheer me up. You always put others before yourself and you will live on inside the lives of everyone you've touched.
Mr. And Mrs. Snyder, thank you for bringing great children into this world and turning them into better people for society. God bless you and your family.
Bonnie Galloway left a message on May 20, 2020:
Kris was truly a ray of sunshine. At UD, she was the most supportive and uplifting person you could ask to be your classmate. Student teaching was tough, but we made it through. I'm sure Kris would've made teacher of the year in no time. A light has gone out, but I will continue teaching as though she were living through me. You were one of the best of us.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Kristen and I had a couple of classes together in high school, we only talked a few times. I started delivering lunch to her at Bayview Elementary and she said, I remember you! and every time after that greeted me with Hello, friend! She was truly the kindest person I have ever met. My condolences go out to her family and friends.
