Life Reflections "To everything there is a season....."Ecclesiastes 3:1

A time to be born: Crystal Yvette Hatch was born in Howard County, Columbia Maryland. She was the daughter of Shelia Hatch and Leon Richardson Jr. She was the proud mother of Kennedy King and step daughter Sharae Nix. Throughout her formative years and continuing throughout her life's journey, she especially loved her sister Deon Kwarula, her brother in love (law) Vincent Kwarula her brother Paris Richardson, her Auntie Lelia Bostic, as well as all of her nieces and nephews. She was a happy child the grew and developed into a happy adult. The joy of her life was to be able to spread kindness to others. She was happiest when she was able to give above and beyond to all those that she loved. She had a true gift of spreading infectious laughter and a deep spirit of selflessness. Beyond sliver and gold, diamonds and pearls, she was a true gem.

A time to plant: Crystal successfully completed her high school education at Gorton High School an went on to attend Mercy College. She later moved and became a longtime resident of Greenwich Connecticut. She was employed at the United States Post Office, White Plains Headquarters. There she worked as a Postal Service Employee right up until the time that she was called to take her rest. Life can take many twists and turns but according to her nephew Devin, Crystal brought joy and happiness to everyone and touched the lives of many who came into contact with her. She was considerate, loving, nurturing, devoted, and most importantly, the funniest person you could ever meet. Her daughter Kennedy considered her mom to be a Wonder Woman. She said, in order to encompass the essence of Crystal, one would have to know that she loved hard and fought even harder. She said, Crystal enjoyed weekend vacations, reading the newspaper, watching reality tv, and watching Investigation Discovery. Although she enjoyed every big family holiday known to man kind, she also enjoyed Buffalo Wild Wings. She will forever be missed, cherished, and honored.

A time to die: During Crystal's last few years on this earth, she was able to spend time with her family and friends. She created long lasting memories before departing this earth. On Sunday, October 18,2020 she received a call from God, He informed her that her new home was complete and she could move in. He did not have to convince her to leave, for she knew that where she was headed she would find peace, joy, happiness, no more pain, no more strife, no discontent, only serenity. She answered the call and departed this world and went on to sleep in heavenly peace.

My Dearest Crystal.
Where to start? We met through mutual friends and we became closer than ever. Working and chilling everyday like clockwork 😁 I can’t even say when we lost touch. Time just took us apart😔 We both created our own families. Thanks to SM we chatted and made plans to get together but we didn’t. So just know that the news of your passing was a shock. I have missed you friend and I will forever miss you. Enjoy you new home with God🙌🏾❤️
I love you friend.
Zakia.

In a million years wouldn’t think I’ll be writing this. I met my dear high school friend when I got to Gorton. And I was sooooo estatic about meeting someone who had big breastesess like me🤣🤣🤣🤷🏾‍♀️ We sat on the back of the 2 bus everyday laughing and cracking jokes until Wayne the cutie came along took my breastesess away. I Used to be like can my Tom and Jerry’s get me a cutie like that with hazel eyes🤣🤣💜🤣🤣🤣 um no what worked for Chrissy definitely didn’t work me 3 babies later🤦🏾‍♀️. I’m truly gonna miss you definitely one of a kind. We were loud full of laughters and Deon was more reserved and quiet. My prayers goes out to Deon and the entire family and friends especially her daughter Kennedy. We must remember we lost a friend a sister but she lost her mother her everything they were so close. Chrissy was so proud of her for all she has accomplished during her education. We grieve but not be selfish and be extended aunties for Kennedy. Through possible prom, virtual or actual graduation from high school and college. Or if she just need to talk to someone beside Dee we must be there unconditionally for her. Crystal aka the other Cookie but I’m that Cookiye first😂😂😂😂😂💜🤷🏾‍♀️ I love you and miss you. The great memories you have stored in my heart and mind will forever never be forgotten especially that beautiful smile and loud laughter. This is never good bye. Forever Loved - Crystal Chrissy Hatch🙏🏾💜💜🙏🏾💜🙏🏾💜 Rest Peacefully

Dear Sister,

What to say...I just love and will miss you very much. We had a good laugh every time we spoke, practically everyday. You brought nothing but joy, even when it seemed there was none. You really were my best friend and cheerleader. Thank you for fighting off all the bullies, side eyeing all the fake friends and protecting me as much as you could. I know you love me. Thank you for showing me what it looked like to truly be present and caring for others. You were selfless.

Your nephews felt so good when you were around, laughing and joking with them—even days you showed up to their games. It was nice having us (their parents) there, sure but it was an added bonus to have Aunty Crystal at the game. We miss you Crissy and will never forget you. I know you’d tell me to stop being “all sad and sappy “😂 but it’s hard sister. It will get easier as time goes on, but I’ll never stop loving or missing you. Neither will your nephews and “Jungle Brother”.

You are our forever love.
❤️❤️❤️❤️

My Dear Crystal....there are no words to express how much I will miss you. No one made me laugh so hard that I began to cry. That was your special gift and I am proud to call you my other daughter. Your compassion for others is a testimony to the type of woman you were. I will cherish the laughter we shared forever. Sleep in Peace dear Crystal....until we meet again💔🌹

Deon and I were friends in Middle School. I used to look up to Crystal because she was dark skin, beautiful, stylish and sweet. I was bullied but no one messed with Crystal. She always treated me kindly, always encouraging and won me over with her smile. Thank you for being the light in challenging moments.

Beautiful Sweet Crystal we met in 7th grade and I remember that day as if it was yesterday. You had a smile that would light up any room, a very compassionate heart and an outgoing personality. Though we have not seen each other in years I will forever hold close to my heart the many memories from 7th through 12th grade graduation and our occasional connections via social media in our adult years. I am Blessed to have had the honor of knowing you and calling you my Friend. Sleep in Peace Beautiful. May Gods strengthening and comforting arms remain around your Family. Until we meet again.
