Crystal my little sister... What happened girl? We were literally just talking about everything...u were actually happy. You were just at ur nephew(my son)'s birthday party and I was at your daughters. Kinda hard not to see you when you were coming back around. Crystal why didn't you just call us?? We would have been there in 2 seconds. We were sitting on the porch and u were soooo happy. My crystal was back. We had our ups and downs but what sisters don't?? U helped me alot with some stuff and u know what I'm talking about. You don't know what this is doing to Mike,me of course,mom,Josh,dad,auntie robin,uncle Dom and Nikki and Shannon ... I will tell Layla how much u loved her when she's old enough to understand. I got to explain to Michael why auntie crystals not going to be around anymore. I'm trying to keep your brother sane and hold it together for him when I am dying inside. I've lost way too many people in the last 2 years. U my girl were the icing on the cake. :(. I always did ur makeup. Dressed u up. I remember everything like yesterday. Crys u may be out of sight but you will NEVER be out of mind!!! Or heart. We all loved u so much. Especially mom dad and mike..To my extended family (Albees &Strachans) I'm so sorry for your loss. I'm not good with death since so many people have left me the last few years. I didn't want you to go. We were supposed to raise our 3 yr olds together. They're only 1st cousins and my son Michael and your daughter Layla 2 weeks apart in age are so very close..I figured you and I would be getting calls from the principal's office and those 2 in there for something. Lol. Don't worry we will all take care of your kids. Dr Virk and apple dental said they're very sorry. Crys I just wish if something was wrong or whatever u could have called any one of us. I never shut u out ever. Neither did Mike. He just wanted you to be his little sister. I'm not taking this well. Please give my mom, grandfather and best friend Sarah a kiss for me up there and when it's my time I hope you my mom and Sarah and pops(like my dad) are all standing there waiting for me and to greet me. I LOVE U CRYSTAL LYNN. !!!!!!! ALWAYS AND FOREVER!!!
Love you ALWAYS,
Your sis-in-law or just ur sister.
