    To Hal and The rest Of the Gibson Family,
    I never tell people, that I know how they feel in times like this, because they only, can know: but I do know that God's know knows, and he can give you comfort, in the midst of anything. So this message is from the Lord himself. "Let not your heart be trouble, ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my father's house are many mansions: If it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And If I go to prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself: that where I am, there ye may be Also. (John 14:1,2,3). praying for you, always, John W Dean

    I can’t begin to tell you how sorry I am for the loss of a beautiful, sweet and Christian woman. I really believe every time I saw Crystal she had that gorgeous smile on that beautiful face. I am so sorry Josh for your loss. Erin and Nick, all I could think about when I heard about Crystal was how much your mother and Crystal were hugging each other when she entered Heaven. All of you are in my prayers.

    There is a saying that when someone dies, heaven gains another angel. The saying is theologically inaccurate. We humans are given free will, whereas angels are created as servants.

    Crystal served others even though she was not required to do so. It was her free will to follow Jesus and to honor Him with her life because she had such great love for Him.

    No, Crystal didn't become an angel when she left us this February. Angels now delight to serve her. After 41 years away, she has returned to heaven as the princess that she was created to be.

    Rest peacefully, my friend. You are missed here on Earth.

    Josh, Haley, Jaci and Annalee,
    I'm so sorry to hear that Crystal has passed. I was always so fond of her and have loved being able to stay in touch all these years later, even if we haven't seen each other since Texas. I know how much she loved and cherished all of you and even though she may be celebrating in Heaven with her Heavenly Father, I'd imagine she's also heartbroken to be missing you all, too. She was so proud of you girls and Josh...you were her rock and her world.
    Sending love from Nevada and praying for you all.

    Crystal has been a part of my life for many years and has always held a special place in my heart. I truly believe it was a God thing that I was able to run into her at Thanksgiving when I was home visiting and give her a big hug! I will forever be grateful for that! I will miss her laugh, her smile, her huge kind heart, and her ability to always know the right words to say during hard times. She was such a beautiful person inside and out and will forever be missed by so many.

    Josh, Haley, Jaci, Annalee, Nick, and Erin… I am so sorry. My heart goes out to all of you. I know she loved each of you so very much!

    We are so very sorry for this unexpected loss. Crystal had such a sweet and infectious Godly spirit about her. It seems like yesterday our girls were in grade school together, she always met me with a smile and a chat. She is most definitely in a beautiful and better place.
    Girls, you all are in our hearts and prayers, as well as the Gibson family. Much love to you all.

  27. Angela Maize
    Crystal was such an amazing person who loved Jesus and her family with all that she had. She was a Christian who would shout it from the rooftop. Crystal was so proud of her daughters and all that they were and were becoming. From my time working with Crystal at MIS, teaching two of her girls to getting massages from her, she was always a joy to be around. Her smile could light up a room and so could her personality. I know that she is rejoicing and catching up with her mother. My prayers go out to her husband, daughters and all of those who are grieving the loss of her physical presence. Just know that there are many people praying for you during this difficult time. Her memory will live on in the hearts of many.

  29. Laurie Sivils
    My heart breaks for Josh and her girls. I knew her from her time here at Ryburns and with Hope at the salon. She was truly a remarkable human being. A ray of literal sunshine. Her smile was contagious. Heaven is a much better place with her in it! I pray for comfort and peace during this very difficult time. May God bless you all.
