The family of Kerri Drees is turning tragedy into inspiration. The QFM radio host died August 5 during surgery to remove a lap band.

It's been less than a month since Kerri's death and during that time, the Drees family has been working hard to make sure that Keri's positive and spiritual impact continues to inspire people in the community she loved. Window stickers in memory of Kerri are appearing on more and more vehicles. The car decals were designed by the Drees family and feature an infinity cross along with the words "Kerri On". Family members say Kerri loved the symbol of the cross as well as meeting and talking with new people. Kerri's daughter Tanisha says that the stickers are a way for Kerri to continue impacting those who both knew and listened to her.

"It's an honor that people continue to want to keep her in their lives," said Kerri's daughter, Tanisha Karznarich. "Even though she's gone, she's not really gone because she continues to live through all these people. She just continues to spread this love and growth through all these people"

The family also recently got matching tattoos in Kerri's honor.
