“There's so much I could say about Crystal. She was fun, caring, happy, humble, beautiful..... I could go on and on. She was the best friend anyone could ever have. Anytime I needed her she would drop everything. It did not matter. There was a time we were joined at the hip. Where one of us was you'd always find the other. As we got older and had families of our own we didn’t get to spend much time together, but always picked up right back where we left off. She was a great Mom. One of the best. Her kids were always her priority no matter what, and she always treated my girls like they were her own as well. She would always be willing to help someone. She would give her shirt off her back if needed and never ask for anything in return. She was blunt and not scared to tell you how it was. Sometimes I did not like it, but it was what I needed to hear. She always had my best interest at heart. She meant the world to me and always will. I will always cherish what we had in our friendship. I am a better person for having had her in my life. There will never be another Crystal as she was one of a kind.” -Beth Downs.
“My mom is a very special women. The memory that will forever be in my heart is going to DQ and buying my momma lunch. We would always get the chicken strip basket with the toast and gravy to go with it. Going over to mamaw Martins and playing phase 10 and aggravation over and over while eating snacks. Since my mom’s been missing, life has been really hard. I always wonder what my life would be like if she and my papaw was still here.” – K. Daughter of Crystal
