    Christal was the sweetest and most loyal friend we had. Over the years we had so many good times and memories that we will treasure forever. We were definately not prepared for your sudden departure as you were such an independent person and always on the go. Our hearts are broken and we sympathize with your daughters Doris , Caroline, sister Heide and the rest of the family. Rest In Peace Christal. We will truly miss you. Love Always.

    I am so sorry to hear about the passing of Christel. She was such a kind person who was always happy to just receive a hug. Christel volunteered here in Port Orange at the Volusia County Council on Aging Dining site and Meals on Wheels. She took pride in her work and was such a pleasure to be around. Rest in peace my friend.

    No one can prepare you for a loss; it comes like a swift wind. However, take comfort in knowing that Omi is now resting in the arms of our Lord.
    Miss you
    Simon,Christin and Leif ❤️

    Niemand kann dich auf den Verlust vorbereiten. Er kommt so schnell wie der Wind. Trotzdem finde den Trost, weil Omi sich schon in den Armen des Gottes erholt.
    Wir vermissen dich
    Simon ,Christin und Leif ❤️
