Crystal's friends held a memorial service for her on the banks of the Matanzas River at Helen Melton Schmidt Park located at Summer Island. It's off the the beaten path, just the way Crystal would have liked. They held the service in a small cove on the river bank. They lit a sky lantern and release it into the clouds and it floated over the river and high above the horizon. They threw flowers into the river.in her memory. Every time we drive by the park, we think of her life's celebration by her friends but it is also brings out the shadows of grief that reminds us she is gone. Grief is always in the shadows.
