So sorry for your loss

 Sorry for your loss. Christal was wonderful friend. She had a kind heart and a gentle soul. Life was just better knowing Christal. She appreciated the simple things in life and there wasn’t anything she wouldn’t take on. Did not matter what we were doing. Whether looking at antiques, getting lost on a road trip or creating new pathways on a project at work with Christal it was a joy and an adventure to cherish. I will miss dearly. You are in my prayers.

Dean, Wesley, Sam, Mert, Arlane and all of Christols family, I am so sorry to read of her passing. My thoughts when remembering her are as a Fierce Mama Bear, very intelligent and dedicated, with a great laugh. She taught me a thing or two at work and in life. I'm sure she will be sorely missed. REST in Peace Christol.
