Randy and Girls.

I just read of Crystal's death. I am so very sorry and wanted to extend my sympathy. She left a beautiful Legacy as well as a beautiful smile to remember and help heal your hearts. My prayers are with you and the whole family. We have such a beautiful God and feels your pain and is ready to help comfort you. Knowing that he is near to all those broken at heart and will soon put an end to sickness and death is so beautiful and comforting. These brought me much comfort and I pray they will your also.

Our family sends our deepest sympathy to all of Christy's loved ones. Although I haven't been personally in touch with her since probably many years ago when our girls were at LME, I remember her sweet personality and beautiful smile like it was yesterday. Those same qualities will shine bright in the young women she raised and their children. Each of you have wonderful memories to cherish and share with each other. Hold on tight to each other and to your faith. She fought the battle and WON and now will rest pain free. Please know we are here for you if you need us.
Sending our love and prayers,

I was saddened to hear of your Mom's passing. She was a great lady and a wonderful person to talk to during my time at Newberry College. One of my favorite memories of her was when Phi Alpha Theta History Society went to Charleston, SC to explore all the old homes. I can still see both of us trying to explain the historial significance of the places to our mothers. May God be with all of you during this time.

I only knew Crystal a short time when we met at Zumba class in Prosperity over a year ago. Not only did I enjoy working out with her, but loved her beautiful smile and warm heart. She was a beautiful lady and I'm happy to have shared my time with her. I know she will be terribly missed by myself and so many others. She is in God's hands now with no more pain and suffering and that is His promise! Our family extends our deepest sympathy for your family and friends.

Ron, Zachary and I are sending you all our love, prayers and deepest sympathy. We cherished Crystal as a dear friend during our time at Newberry, and well after. She was a bright light and constant positive energy to all. She loved you, Randy, the girls and their families, and little Tucker, more than words could be expressed. She was the most gracious, loving, joyful woman. We have missed her dearly since our time at Newberry ended, and we will forever miss her presence in our lives here forward. May the memories that you created be a source of comfort and peace now and always.

I am sorry to hear of your loss. When we lose someone in death, the pain, the grief and the feeling of helplessness can seem unbearable. The Bible teaches; "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more. Neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things has passed away." (Revelation 21:4)I hope this message will help you cope with the loss of your loved one.
