Dear Jay, Cheryl and I were shocked to hear the news about Crystal's death. We haven't spent much time together the past number of years but we shared many, many great memories some years ago. You and Crystal were always very special to us and we will continue to pray for you and your family. I really wanted to come to the funeral but I will be out of town for 8 days beginning tomorrow. May God's peace and comfort be with you in your time of grieving and sorrow. Blessings to you.

You are home, but I/we will sadly miss the expectation of running into you somewhere here on earth.
"You were always my hero". Thank you for sharing the love of Christ to all you met. No one would ever know the physical ailment you endured because you always showed the spiritual strength you had. Until God calls us all home-good-by.
