Kristina (Price) Ahmad

Kristina Kaye (Price) Ahmad, 35, joined her Creator in heaven on June 17, 2014.
The cause was either anaphylaxis or sudden death syndrome (SDS).  
Kristina was born Aug. 26, 1978, at Barnes Hospital, St. Louis, MO.  She was the first child of adoring parents, Jim and Marcia.  Only a month old, she moved with her mom and dad to Kansas City.   She attended Our Lady of Lourdes Parish School and Raytown South High School.  She then earned an Associate of Arts degree from Longview Community College, and a Bachelor of Science degree in anthropology at Central Missouri State University at Warrensburg (now Missouri Central University). 
During her professional career, Kristina held various administrative positions, had wide experience in customer service and office environments, and possessed excellent organizational, verbal and communications skills.  She held jobs with the IRS, Word Finance Corp., ExamOne, NCO Financial, Applied Marketing Research, the Kansas City  Repertory Theatre, Shawnee Mission Pulmonary Consultants, and the Raytown and Red Bridge YMCAs.
Among Kristina’s loves were her cats, Cleo and Geezer, and each and every turtle she ever found.  She cherished her friends and loved everyone equally – no matter their station in life – and strongly believed that we are all God’s children, a lesson she learned at home.  She had a wonderful sense of humor, and she wrote poetry with deep and remarkably expressive sensitivity.  In later years she was on track for a return to school to extend her education into U.S. immigration law and regulations.  
Survivors include her husband, Rukhsar, and two step-children, Arslan and Badria; her mom and dad, Marcia and Jim Price, Raytown; her brother, James K. Price, Raytown; her grandfather, James R. Price, Joplin; her uncles, Mark E. Klein, Raytown, Bob Price, Joplin, and Jim Flanagan, Olathe; three aunts: Sandy Flanagan, Olathe; Marsha Rudd, Springfield, and Michelle Price, Joplin; and several cousins.
Kristina has returned to God, where her soul is safe and warm and happy.  We are all grateful to Him for sharing her with us, if only for a time that seems far too short.

    Words cannot even begin to express our deepest sympathy to you on the loss of such a precious child. Gosh I remember when she was just a wee little thing and she would come to Park Lane Hospital and EVERYONE made over her because she was so beautiful and charming. Marcia I hope you will contact me when you are able. Julie

    No words can express how much you’ll be missed and what an exceptional person you were. You helped me through one of the toughest times of my life with laughter and support and the best advice. To the Price family, I’m so sorry for your loss. Kristina was an amazing human being with the kindest soul.
    Until we meet again……

    I can only hope that Kristina is hanging with mom looking over us smiling. She always treated me growing up like her little sister and I have many wonderful childhood memories with her in them. I am so saddened about this and I love you Marsha, Jim, and Jamie.

    To Jim (and Marcia): You may or may not remember me. I was a classmate at JHS. I do remember you, but I am not sure if it is from some class we had together or what.

    Audrey informed me of the tragic loss you recently suffered. I remember when my cousin passed away, it was probably the most difficult thing my aunt and uncle had to endure in their lives. Although I have not lost any of my children, there have been nights when I was not sure if I would enter the ranks of devastated parents.

    We live in a very broken world. Technology has showcased that in faster and more dramatic ways than every before. But personal loss like you have endured screams that life is not fair and confounds us in our grief. I am so sorry that you had to enter those reprehensible ranks of devastated parents.

    The only thing that has steadied me when I have staggered and held me together when I was unraveling has been the hand of God.He has certainly not answered all my questions or satisfied my sense of injustice, but I have known his love, his mercy, and his comfort when nothing and no one else could help. His presence has been very real for me and I pray that it will be for you as well during these very dark days.

    I do hope that these few words do not come across frivolous or trite. We will likely not have further contact in the future. But there are many people around you who have the same concern and sorrow for your suffering, although they may not know how to express it. There are probably a few who could be the “hand of God” for you. Don’t be afraid to reach out, to let people in, to draw strength from those who want to share theirs with you.

    My prayer is that you and your family will know “the peace of God that surpasses all understanding’ (Philippians 4:7) and the love of God from which neither death nor life can separate us (Romans 8:38) in the midst of your deep sorrow.

    I’m just now seeing this. I’m so sorry to hear about Kristina. My thoughts and prayers are with you. She will be missed so much. I will always cherish the memories I have of her.
