It is with a heavy pen and very heavy hearts that we announce the loss of one of our own this past weekend. Crystal Cole was taken from this earth entirely too soon. But to all that knew her - her captivating personality and magnetic presence will live on in spirit and in memory, for those we love don't go away...they walk beside us every day.
"On Saturday June 6, 2015 sadly we lost one of our kickball family members. Crystal Cole was a vivacious, energetic, thoughtful person. She was the true life of any party, with her love of music you could always find her bopping her beautiful blonde locks to the beat of any DJ. She enjoyed traveling the country for the chance to be live and up front and truly feel the sound of the base pump threw her body. Crystal was well known in the Rochester community as she spent most her time either making us all fabulous drinks @ our favorite watering holes, OR kicking her way into our hearts on the kickball field. No matter what she was doing she brought a ray of sunshine with her. She has left behind two wonderful children, a son Chase, and a daughter Abby. Chase is an up and coming soccer star who hopes someday to compete in the big league. He and his mother had a special bond, and when they were together you could see the sparkle in her eye. Abby is a soft spoken, kind young lady who enjoys to dance. She is a spit image of crystal and often refered to as Crystal's mini-me. Her children brought out the gentle, nurturing side so many of us will miss. As we say good-bye to a friend it's never easy, Crystal Cole you will always be in our hearts and memories, and every time the sun shines, or a dragonfly flutters by, or the base drops on our favorite song we will know it's you saying Hello and you love us back!" ~ Beckie Dodge
