I am so very sorry for your loss.
I have nothing but sweet memories of Chelsea.... And those make my heart smile.

To watch her jumping in the foam at BOO at the ZOO two years ago was priceless, and I will never forget that FUN evening we shared there.

She always had a smile and a hug wherever I saw her, and I can promise you that she has left an imprint upon many hearts in her all-too-brief stay in this world.

May OUR GRACIOUS and LOVING LORD comfort you in the next weeks and months. And may you be comforted with the knowledge that Chelsea is in ETERNAL PEACE.

MUCH LOVE to All of you……… Crystal, Gail, Bart, Nick, and Karley. ?
I love y'all.

Chelsea was one of the sweetest people around. She never failed to wear a smile and always asked about my family when I'd see her. Praying that you'll feel God's arms wrapped around you giving you the strength needed to face the difficult days that lie ahead. Lee, Elaine, Elise and Justin

I'm still struggling with what to say. There is nothing that anyone can say to relieve the constant pain that you all will continue to endure for years to come. It's an emptiness that will always be there but I pray you can fill that emptiness with the many wonderful memories of the beautiful soul that was Chelsea. My first memory of her was when she was only a baby. I held her in my arms and she slept. I thought to my 11 year old self as I held her, she looks so cute, there's nothin' wrong with her. But God had a plan for her. She was a loving and caring young lady. Always had a greeting for all and was never afraid to give a hug if needed or not! She's dancing with some really amazing people now. Her Daddy, my daddy and uncle Gene to name a few. Her arms are in the air and her hair is flowing in the sweet gentle breeze, free of the earthly struggle that she endured. I find comfort in that and I hope it gives you all some small relief of this pain. I love you all!

#22 Marie Williams Murra 2015-09-21 12:45
Crystal, May God give you a special measure of strength to make it through. Your baby girl was the sweetest most loving young lady I think I have ever met. She gave her love and warmth freely to everyone she met. She always SMILED that beautiful smile no matter what she was going through. I have always believed Chelsea was a special gift from God. It was my honor to watch this child grow and blossom. I used to see her when she visited Greg. She called me aunt Marie. That made me feel so special. She never met a stranger. She is with Jesus now. Gone home where there is no more pain. Her daddy met her at the pearly gates. She will always be missed.
