For Kris
Posted at 09:03 AM


Five years ago today my friend Kris Okins passed away, resulting from a bad bicycle accident here in Portland. I still think about Kris, and would like to dedicate the whole day to her.

Hey drivers: Watch out for bike people, okay?

This one’s for Kris.

Five years - hard to believe. She loved her work as a messenger and it’s so sad she had to die doing what she loved.

I was impressed by all the bikers in Portland; how courteous bikers and drivers usually are…….and now in Traverse City, many streets have a painted bike path on them! I will be more careful, as a tribute to Kris.

The old memorial site is still on Draplin’s site.


The domain associated with it is not longer active.

I feel terrible for not knowing. I’ve thought of her, and others from MCAD days, many times. Great gal.

Thanks for posting and keeping her memory alive.

Much love for Kris and her family.
