I was so little when we came into each others lives. You were my newest family member and also my newest babysitter LOL. You were so cool and I wanted to be just like you! You had lights all around your room and you listened to music I liked. You helped me create my first MySpace and A.I.M. Messenger and had my whole page personalized. As I got older, I spent all my extra time with you. We hung out every time I was out of school. Christmas, Spring Break, Summer.. We went on shopping trips, took corny portrait pictures and I even got to tag along to doctor’s appointments in Pensacola where you always draped a towel over your head and freaked out about the bridge. We were literally ride or die. We spent countless hours watching MTV Cribs and talking about how we would design our houses when we married into fame. Over the years we didn’t spend every day off together. I sure wish we had. There was distance within myself and my family but Crystle was the piece that brought me back, and I so thankful she did. I know she would want everyone to get along and just “be cool.” So, this is my cheers to her! I will always be cool and remain a constant within the family. I will be a shoulder to lean on, just like she was.
