One could always recognize her presence by her signature essence lingering even after she left the room...Thank you Perry Ellis!
She always paid attention to the finer details to comfort those around her. She lovingly accepted nieces and nephews (little peeps), as well as, puppies at her day care/ puppy spa! She so enjoyed spoiling people and puppies with prizes and treats for special and everyday occasions.
Kristi was everyone’s biggest cheerleader and they were all her “little buttons”! She had an uncanny ability to reach people in a positive way. She was supportive and patient and always made sure everyone had enough food.
Kristi handled everything effortlessly, even during high stress situations. If you didn’t “smell” her signature scent, you always knew she was nearby with the numerous pairs of “peepers”!
Kristi was and will always be Bozzuto’s Unsung Hero.
Kristi is survived by her beloved husband of 26 years, Todd Harrison of Elkridge, MD; devoted sister, Suzanne Kirkendall, wife of the late Brad Kirkendall of Odenton, MD; two loving brothers, Michael McLaren, and his wife Laura of Chesapeake Beach, MD and Scott McLaren, and his wife Tracy of Lancaster, CA; and a host of loving nieces and nephews.
