“It has taken me days to find the right words to process your exit. I have struggled to come to terms with the fact that you are no more. Valentine’s Day will never be the same again, not that any other day would’ve sufficed. I was never ready for your exit Crystal. Nothing could have prepared me for this. I am numb and still in total disbelief. I do however know that my heart aches and that I, my family, EIB, Empire, and your countless friends have lost a real one. Yours was a life passionately and selflessly lived. Forever in our hearts.”
