Today we celebrate the life of Crystal, a loving sister, daughter, granddaughter, niece, cousin, tía and friend. Our hearts are broken as we mourn for Crystal leaving us so soon, but we must remember all the memories and love that she left with us.
She was born in Phoenix, Arizona on April 26 1992 to Ivonne and Jose Luis. Crystal unfortunately lost her father at a young age, but her dad, Manuel, was able to step into her life and care for her. She was a part of a huge family that always made sure she felt loved and where she made sure everyone else felt loved as well.
We will always remember Crystal as someone who was in love with music including Mariah Carey or Amy Winehouse. Someone who loved makeup, fashion and hair and would always love to influence all of her little sisters. Someone who would stay up all night with her brothers and sisters just to show them a new movie that she loved or simply take the time to sit down with her mom and dad and tell them how grateful she was for them.
Crystal was a caring and passionate person with everything that she did. Whether that be singing, writing, loving or caring for her family. She was a person who would put others' needs before her own just because she cared that much. As Crystal once said, “People do not realize that you are only here once, so when you do leave, often your name can fade away from the world… but it is the ones that loved you the most that keep your name alive…” So, let's all do one thing for her in this lifetime and never let her name fade away from the world and keep her name alive
