Way too young! RIP sweet Crystal.

A piece of my heart has broken off. There are lots of fond and wonderful memories of you. I especially liked the one when I gave you the cowgirl dress. How you loved it and danced around in it. What a beautiful girl. I love you Crystal. See you in heaven sweet Neice.

Knowing Crystal as a student at Milroy and later as a vet tech, I was proud of all she had accomplished in her young life. She is gone too soon, but she leaves fond memories. My condolences to Donnie and rest of the family.

We wish to offer our deepest condolences to all of Crystal's family and friends. She was like a daughter to us, and we watched her find her way to her RN degree. We thought she had a clear road ahead of her, with many paths that she could take as she wished. we never foresaw this fatal accident. We were shocked to her of her death. Our only solace, is that with the passage of time, we know that the pain of her loss will fade, and that our deep loving memory of her will last forever. Crystal, we will see you again, riding your horses and loving on your monster dog, Pongo. Love you little girl.
Sorry Jim and Donnie,

Thanks, Curtis
