Maya Angelou wrote,

“A great soul serves everyone all the time.
A great soul never dies
It brings us together again and again.”

May the great soul of Crystal bring all of your family, friends and acquaintances together again and again to offer you comfort, provide you with friendship and shower you with love during this time of loss and reflection.

Thinking of you and carrying you in our hearts and prayers,

Pat and Ellen, 

I am so sorry for your loss.

This is a poem a friend of my niece wrote when she passed away at the age of nine years old and I think of it whenever someone dies before their time…

There is a river that flows
From dark to light
And Crystal is a ship
On that river of life.
But when the wind blows
Her sails start to fill
And she soon drifts out of sight
This does not mean her journey ends,
It just means
The river bends.

Condolences left by other guests:

Pat and Ellen,

I offer you and your family my deepest heart-felt sympathy and prayers in the death of your beloved daughter, Crystal.  I offer you this quote in love from a spiritual teacher, to help heal your grieving hearts:

      The Heart of Understanding

  Death is utterly acceptable to consciouness and life.  There has been endless time of numberless deaths, but neither consciousness nor life has ceased to arise.  The felt quality and cycle to death has not modified the fragility of flowers, even the flowers within the human body.  Therefore, one’s understanding of consciousness and life must be turned to That Utter, Inclusive Truth, That Clarity and Wisdom, That Power and Untoucable Gracefulness, That One and Only Reality, this evidence suggests.  One must cease to live in a superficial and divided way, seeking and demanding consciousness and life in the present apparent form, avoiding and resisting what appears to be the end of consciousness and life in death.
  The Heart Is Real understanding.  The Heart Is Real Consciousness and Real Life.  The Heart Is What Merely and Only Is, but Which Is also Appearing In and Behind the conditions of mortal life and it’s death.
  There Is Only the Constant Knowledge and Enjoyment of the Heart, moment to moment, through the instant of all conditions of appearance and disappearance.

Love,
Al

Another shining star has been taken from us much too soon.  If words could help dull the pain Pat and Ellen, I would write a novel, but there are no words to help ease the pain of the loss of a beloved child.  With the passage of time, the pain will subside and the loving memory of having sweet Crystal in your lives will endure. You have my deepest sympathies and I share your tears over the loss of this beautiful young soul.  May God bless her and you as you try to accept his will during this most difficult of times.
