Chrystal and Jimmy

Chrystal was all things to Darlene and Jimmy. Mostly, she was ready to forgive Darlene anything because she understood the nuances of her sister's addiction.  She forgave her for not caring for baby Jimmy and in fact took them both into her home to the point of each of their deaths.

See, Chrystal had experienced a period of street life herself and knew that she was fortunate to have escaped.

Jimmy was as cheerful as Darlene was grumpy.  Chrystal taught them how to love each other before they died.  Their deaths left Chrystal broken hearted and broken spirited.  Theirs is a sad story.  Very human and very sad.
