Crystal, a beautiful name for a beautiful girl, I did not know her personally, but I do know what you are suffering as I to lost my daughter. It leaves a hole in your heart that can never be filled.
Just know that she is whole again and feels no pain.As she passed from this world we know and reached out and took the hand of god, I'm sure her thoughts would have been that she would miss her family and friends. You are in my prayers...

Agnes & the entire Schulz family
My thoughts & prayers are with you during this difficult time. I always felt a special bond with your family during the elementary school years when I taught you and several of your siblings. Perhaps it was because we shared a farming background and large families. I did not know Crystal, but I gather from others' comments that she was a very special person. May the Good Lord continue to help you as you cope with your loss.

I am so sorry for your loss of an amazing girl. I worked with Crystal at Abbott House and she was amazing. One of my favorite people to work with. I hope to make it to the funeral if I can get away at work for it. The good news is I know that she is with God in Heaven and free of any earthly problems. If you haven't read the book "Heaven is for Real" please do, it really helped me come to peace with the loss of my brothers a few years back as did the book "The Shack" Sending the family and her many friends many prayers to get through the loss of Crystal.

Aggie and Austin--I am so sorry for your loss. Crystal was a special girl and I remember her being Jake's favorite at Bright Beginnings. She was even sweet enough to attend his birthday party when he was going there. I am keeping you in my thoughts and prayers. Let me know if there is anything that I can do for you during this difficult time. Kari

We will never forget your Crystal, she was a great daughter and
sister! Austin would come down to see us, and Crystal would
always be checking on him, to see if he was OK.
When you all moved, the neighborhood wasn't the same.
We hope you all make it threw this difficult time....
