  1. FRIEND.....

    Written by: Kristi Exkart

    Man I miss you girl! Your smile was contagious and your laugh like no-one else’s. You’re forever in my heart and always on my mind. I hope your dancing in heaven!

  2. Every time I would see little Crystal she had the biggest smile on her face and I miss seeing that pretty little face first and she would not hold anything in she would tell you like it was

  3. Love you so much Aunt Crystal your so beautiful and everything you would do I would do like white eye shadow blonde hair I just miss you so much I’m sorry for not replying to your text when you wanted to I would if I could now …. I hope your dancing with my brother and my cousin

  4. The funniest thing I remember is when we was little kids we weigh on fishing trip and poor Crystal got mad I don't know what reason she's playing with a frog gig stabbing in the ground nearby kept telling her you better quit you can stab yourself in the foot and by God she did love and miss you with all my heart

  5. I remember when u first got with Shawn. Boy was that an adventure lol. From the moment we met there was and will always be a connection between us. We were so inseparable back in the day. When we would roll up together, people would be like, "lord what r these girls gonna pull tonight?!" Being pregnant together by brothers brought us so close in life. Just like every "couple" we had our disagreements but no matter how mad we got at the other the love always seemed to keep our souls connected. I never ever thought I'd be posting something like this for u. Ur supoosed to call me at 3am so I can tell u all this myself. I miss your smile, your laugh, and how ur eyes lit up when u was truly happy over something or someone, especially ur babies. They especially miss u like crazy and long for their momma but they also know like the rest of us ur in a far better place then we are. You no longer have to suffer pain the world causes people. U keep my child with u in heaven busy and I'll forever watch over urs here with me still. i miss and love u so much.. I can't wait to see ur beautiful face again one day. Soul sisters for eternity. :heart::heart::heart:

  9. I may never have met you but from what everyone says you sounded like a really nice and caring and loving person R.I.P.

  10. So beautiful Megan. I just absorb this yet. So glad i was able to see her for a few seconds although it was j661st her body..i believe she knew i was there. Always cherish out memories

  11. I'll never forget you mama. I love you so much nobody will never understand what we had but I will always remember. Fly high. :pray::skin-tone-3:

  12. I remember spending so much time with you when life took us somewhere secluded, away from the real world stress and in a place where we had no choice but to find ourselves. You were my best friend in there… We spent ever waking moment together, i saw the real you! Im so sad life beat you down, Im greatful knowing your in the presece of God… No evil this world could have brought out of you could take away from the beautiful soul you had!!! I love you!

  13. So many memories all the way back to Enterprise days. Wish you well in the higher place. Prayers to the family. Sad love ya all
