Friday, March 8, 2019Three of the best summers of my life were spent as a young girl at Camp Woodsmoke and I know that the beauty of that place, the people who worked there and the magical experiences I had there changed my life. All for the better. I wished I had let Kris know that a long time ago so I hope Jane might also hear what important women they were in my young life. Thank you. Know that your legacy is strong.

Wednesday, March 6, 2019You will be missed my friend, you will be missed..... Love ya........ "I give you this one thought to keep- I am with you still - I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow, I am the diamond glints on snow, I am the sunlight on ripened grain, I am the gentle autumn rain. When you awaken in the morning's hush, I am the swift, uplifting rush of quiet birds in circled flight. I am the soft stars that shine at night. Do not think of me as gone- I am still with you - in each new dawn."

Friday, March 1, 2019Kris, you had a beautiful life here on this earth. Your journey is now complete and time for you to relax and enjoy. take all those up in Heaven and show the all the wonderful times and features that the great out doors has too offer. Thank you for making me a better person for knowing you. I remember some of our long talks when I was you "team manager" at NCCC. The memories of Camp Wood Smoke will be long lasting and even when I went there and begged you to let me go home when I was supposed to be out there for a week. Makes me smile just knowing you. Rest Well now and Godspeed Ma'am...

Wednesday, February 27, 2019Kris was a big part of our summers at Lake Placid. I’ll always remember the summer I spent helping out as the pack boy for the New Hampshire hike, and the evenings at the lodge, by the fire, with Kris at the guitar, leading us in camp songs that never ended ... Rest In Peace.

Wednesday, February 27, 2019Kris was a true leader who guided myself and many in life. Her leadership has shaped our lives and will live on in many generations to come. My deepest sympathy to both Jane Bacon and Kris Hansen family's. As a camp cook for several years the fun in your life will live on - Gin and Tonic on the lake is forever. Godspeed!

I took all of my swimming and lifeguarding courses at Woodsmoke, was a CIT and Instructor for many years. Camp was a second home to me. I am a 46er because of Kris and Woodsmoke. I will miss you Kris and I think of you often as I swim, hike, and enjoy the ADKs. Love, Judy

Tuesday, February 26, 2019Kris would never have known the esteem I cherished in how she comported her life. In a time when same sex marriages were taboo even to talk about, Kris never wavered in expressing her love for Jane. She is one of those pioneers who made possible the evolution in a society's acceptance of alternative life choices. I knew her as a colleague at North Country Community College, and the example she set as a professional educator superseded any dwelling on her gender role. Even back in the 70's we didn't think about that other aspect of her life, other than to know she loved, and loved well . She was too much of a human being to be confined by narrow-mindedness.
