    To the Davis and Petersen Families,
    My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. I recently reconnected with Crystal through facebook after many many years. I would chat with her from time to time and looked forward to reading her facebook statues and messages. She always was so positive and up beat and loved her family very much.
