Kristin Marie Pickford
Peabody, MA - Kristin Marie Pickford, aged 51, died suddenly at her home in Peabody in the early morning hours of November 16, 2019.
Kristin was born in Pittsfield, Mass. on August 8, 1968 and was adopted as a newborn by her loving parents Anthony and Irene Aquino of Housatonic, Mass. She is survived by her husband of 24 years Lucas J. Pickford, her mother Irene Aquino, sister Aimee Aquino, her father-in-law, James Pickford, and her beloved kitty cats Daisy Lou and little Raju. Her father passed away in 1988 at the age of 50. Kristin graduated from Monument Mountain High School in Great Barrington, in 1986 and then from Dean Junior College in Franklin, in 1988.
When I met Kristin on September 10, 1988 I was just 17 years old attending college in Boston. It was a time before the internet when if you wanted to meet someone you actually had to go to a party, introduce yourself, talk to them in person, make a good impression, and hopefully meet a beautiful girl who you could marry and spend the rest of your life with. Well, that's exactly what happened to me on that night in Boston all those years ago. I took Kristin by the hand and on the staircase I turned to her without saying a word and I kissed her. And she kissed me back. We were inseparable after that and we never looked back. That was 31 years ago.
Kristin was beautiful and talented and creative. She was smart, funny and kind-hearted. She was sweet and warm and loyal and good. Kristin was my best friend, my confidant, my refuge, my world. My entire world...until the end of the world. Hers and mine.
Our cats miss you, your mom and Aim miss you, my dad and Sheila miss you, but nobody misses you more than I miss you Kristin. I miss you every single minute of every single day and I'll never get over the fact that I have to spend the rest of my days on this earth without you.
But I will see you again when this lonely life of mine is finally through, of that there is no doubt. The 31 years I had you with me were my greatest blessing in this life, it's the rest of the years I'm worried about. Until we meet again Kristin, I'll see you in my dreams. For we'll love anew just as we used to do
when I'm deep in a dream of you. I love you, I love you madly. Your husband...Lucas

Kristin was cremated in a private ceremony and her ashes are with her husband Lucas and their kitty cats Daisy Lou and little Raju.

There is no doubt that the love you two shared was a once-in-a-lifetime kind of thing, a powerful thing. It is a wonderful thing to have that kind of love in your life. Nothing touches that, not even death. I send all my heartfelt support and caring to you on your journey forward.

I am so sad and heartbroken for you Luke, and your and Kristen's families. What you've written is so beautiful and your expression of love for her so deep. You are in my thoughts and please know how profoundly sorry I am for this loss. She was much too young.
Love to you all.
