Chrystal King was a great mom. There was never a time I didn’t see her joking and playing around with her family. I knew I could joke around with her too. She was a free spirit and was never afraid to speak her mind. I am best friends with her daughter, and there was never a time I couldn’t go to Chrystal for advice or guidance through high school. She was always there for her daughter. Always proud, protective, and happy for her daughter and all of her accomplishments. I lift Donna Rose Upton and her family up in prayer and love at this difficult time.

Chrystal Rose took me to my first choice ncert, 1995 Lubbock Texas. Ozzy and Sepultura, she also made me ride my first roller coaster at Wonderland Park. My best memory though was her giving birth to our beautiful daughter Donna Rose.
