Crissa was a good friend to all. I remeber one time my little sister spent the night with her and she came to the babysitters house late at night with my sister who was crying because of the huge knot on her forehead. Crissa didn't want to tell her mom that it had happened because Jo had hit her head on Crissa's knee, so Crissa and Jo said that it happened because Jo tripped and fell and hit her head on the coffee table. I miss Crissa very much an di'm pretty sure that Jo, Sandy, Samantha and Wilma Lesley miss her too. Crissa's death was a tradgeic accident that should have never happened, but God thought it was time to let her go.

Poor Wilma Lesley ended up breaking her leg to try and save crissa. she didn't want this to happen to crissa. crissa is loved by many. crystal, remeber that you still have crissa event though you can't see her. she will always be in your heart no matter what. she was your baby. so many things have went downhill since crissas death but we have to keep our heads up and not let our past get to us.
We love you Crissa. You will always be in our hearts. God bless her family.

Hello Im Crissas mom. I miss my baby every day! Deep down it is hard to let her go. Yes I know She stays in my heart and will allways be there. Alot of things go on in this life that we, us ,everybody do not and iguess will not understand. Someday Iwill find out why she got gone at a youg age. I like to think at times God had a very special plan for her . Others just worry about very simple things in life this changed the way I look at certain things. goes to show all life she short.

I am so sorry for the loss of your beloved Crissa.
She sounded like such a kind and fun loving girl. My heart aches for all that loved her. I lost my daughter 10 years ago. I think it did make me a more patient person. Soo many things just don't matter. Not a day passes when I don't think of her. Thank you for sharing her.
God bless.

I am so sorry for your loss. Losing a child is the most difficult thing. God must have needed a very special new angel and she was chosen. He will look after her.

I actually knew her because she went to church with me and I am really for the people who are her parents and I hope that doesn't happen again to none of their family. I just wished she could have lived through it. The two kids that dragged out of the water is the kids that I knew. Their names where Samantha Lesley and Sandi Lesley. They also go to my church where Crystal Powell went. So if you could pray for their family I would appreciate it.

Is it legal for Judge Tracy Carroll to be married to Lt Billy Flurry who works for the Aiken County Sheriff's Office? LT Flurry has a number of officers who present there case in her courtroom for warrants, arrests, hearings, trials, etc. It's hard to believe that she is able to conduct impartial and independent hearings given that she's sleeping with law enforcement. This just doesn't seem right from an ethical point of view???

crissa is my cousin. she was a kindhearted girl and was a very good person.me and my mom used to live with her and her family when we had nowhere to live.we were like brother and sister til she died.she came to see me when i was in the hospital she and her sister would call me and talk to me and at the end of each call they would tell me that they love me and crissa would always tell me to call her back and i never called her back.i wish i would have taken advantge of the oppurtunitys i had to call her. i would give my life if i could tell her bye and to have her back.before i do anything i stop and think would crissa want me to do that or would crissa do that.i could have told crissa goodbye but no one called me and told me till it was to late.
