I wasn't that close to her, but I did swim with her a lot on relays. I can't believe this happened. Her little sister was going to College for Kids with me when it happened. I can't believe it.

Here is another tragic example of why teens should not be allowed to drive with more than one child in their car (Yes, teenagers you are children). Teens and cars are a dangerous combo. No one wants to say it after an incident like this, but we all know it is the TRUTH!!

Crystal and I weren't that close but I still counted her as a friend because she was so nice and had the kind of determined personality that would impact you whenever you talked to her. I miss you crystal and will never forget you. I'll keep writing letters to you to let you know what's going on here. I know you can't write back so I'll try not to ask to many questions. You will forever live on in my memory.

I'm one of Crystal's aunts. It was tragic to have this happen to such a young girl. I'm sure you are all devastated by the news as were we that fateful day. She will always hold a special place in all of our hearts that only she can fill. I want to say that moving on does not mean forgetting her. Pls don't feel guilty about that. You will need to move on and life your live. You will not forget her if she has impacted your life in such a way. Yes, she will live forever in our hearts and minds but she would want us to move on. Moving on and using what she gave you to impact someone else's life. What you have learned from her don't hide, but share with others. You will find that it will make an impact on someone else! And that is such a wonderful gift to give. I miss you Crystal, but I rejoice knowing that you started a REAL relationship with Jesus Christ shortly before the accident.
~~Our Love for her is Crystal clear!~~

Crystal still lives on in all of her classmates. We all think about her everyday. Not a day goes by that she isn't seen in what someone else does or says. We love you Crystal. You are still and will always be missed.

Its been four days past a year since Crystal died and i still get sad when i think about what happened. Crystal and I weren't to close but I saw her everyday in swim team. It makes me sad to think about how young she was and how much she could of accomplished in her life. I can't say I knew a ton about Crystal but I do know that she was incredibly kind and open to anyone. I wish we could of gotten to know each other better because you would of had the privilage of laughing in my face and calling me freshie this upcoming school year. I hope your family is doing well.
