Dear Mr. and Mrs. Love,
I was so sorry to hear of Crystal's passing. She was an excellent law clerk and defense attorney. She worked with me on substance abuse and addiction issues in a program I was leading in the Methodist Church in a state-wide effort. Her expertise and caring nature will be missed. I will pray for comfort for the entire family in this time of need.

Mr. & Mrs. Love and extended family: Please accept my sincere condolences on the loss of your lovely daughter, Crystal. I enjoyed talking with Crystal in connection with the court system, and loved reading her inspirational posts and notes online. She was smart, funny, and charming, and I will miss her greatly, as will many others. Her drive to help others was amazing, and her love for Jesus grew each day. I know she is at peace with her Savior in Heaven now, and I pray this knowledge is a comfort to you, too.

Jerry, Mary and Sam,
Crystal was my first friend when we moved to Vanceburg. I have so many memories of us at the farm and at the other house. I am so sorry for your loss. She was so easy to love and I am glad of having the pleasure to call her my best friend for awhile. She will be forever missed. When I think of her I think of her smile and contagious laugh. Many prayers and much love for your family in the upcoming days and months ahead.

God Bless,

Dear Mr. and Mrs. Love, I met your daughter, Crystal, at Morehead State. Crystal and our daughter, Meg, shared a number of classes and were friends while in college and then on Facebook. Meg is devastated by this tragedy and will miss her friend's FB posts and their ongoing friendship. Please know that you and your family are in our thoughts and prayers and we hope that you can find peace in the many memories and love you shared with Crystal. Sincerely, Susan Gill, Coshocton, OH

Dear Mr. And Mrs. Ball,
Please accept my sincere condolences in the loss of your daughter. I came to know Crystal through representation of my son and found her to be a very compassionate person, as well as an expert attorney.
My son would not accept a plea as do most in this area and the case went to trial. Crystal gave it her all! Although she lost, she still didn't give up. She immediately filed an appeal. My son won that appeal and I give Crystal credit for that. I will forever be grateful for the effort she put forth in defending him.
I am so sorry for your loss as well as a loss to the community.

Crystal was a member of the Academic Honors Program at MSU and I was the program secretary while she was there. She was in the Honors House everyday. She was such a joy to be around. As others, I am shocked. I loved reading her FB posts and hear about her faith in Jesus. The last post was in the early morning of June 2 and was about death. I was comforted with her words and have read it several times. I know she is with the Lord. She was loved by the program Director, Mac Lucky, and the students in the program. I will share with them this web site so they can send messages. Prayers to all. The peace that passes all understandling will comfort you in the days, weeks, and years ahead.

One day all in the grave will be called to "come out." (John 5:28, 29) May you, as Crystal's dear family, find comfort in this hope as well as knowing that you have all been invited by our loving Creator, Jehovah God, to "throw all your anxiety on him, because he cares for you." (1 Peter 5:7; Psalm 83:18) I hope you all take care and please accept my sincerest condolences.
