My deepest sympathy goes out to your families. I was shocked when I heard the news of Crystal’s passing. Although we lost touch in later years, she will always bring back fond memories. She was a bright star in life. Her humor, kindness and friendship will live on.

I remember Brooke me and your family playing poker in the dining room. You not being able to make up your mind on what to do and the radio blasting in the kitchen. All of us having a great time with each other, I don’t know quite what to say. I am terribly sorry Josie! I don’t know how I can help you but, if you ever need me know that I will always be here for you in anything that you need. I m truly sorry for your loss, I love you Josie.

Jamie Dickrell


I was sorry to hear of your sister’s passing. I remember her being around the ball diamond when we were kids and your mom was coaching us. Crystal was also a classmate of my brother PaulWaters, and I know he was upset to hear of your family’s loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
