Crystal was more than just a mother, she was God sent! Most amazing woman to walk this earth, now she is flying high full of pride with us everyday giving us strength and still sharing her love. One of the most wonderful things about her was no matter the situation if she did or did not have it, she gave her all to help anybody! So simple but so powerful, the love she shared touched peoples hearts. She will always be remembered and never forgotten. She enjoyed helping people and enjoyed family values most. The smile on her face and the joy in her heart during family get-togethers was priceless. She enjoyed helping ones in need, family cookouts, camping, going to the creeks and getting her kids together to do karaoke. She loved seeing all of us happy and together. Even during the hardest times, she gave us strength. During each battle or problem she would go through, she would come out on top showing us anything is possible. While we are here today even through this hard time, we hold our heads up high and stay positive with our hearts full of love knowing even though she is gone she will forever be with us. In loving memory of Mama, Ma, Crysie or Crystal Hopson Jenkins.
