Ciara Rose Tionia Gilliam - Forever 22

Ciara was a loving daughter, granddaughter, sister, auntie, niece, friend and cat-mom.

She was an all-around athlete that enjoyed playing soccer, basketball and track and field. She received many awards and accolades.

Ciara struggled with a painful life altering event of sexual assault that lead to severe anxiety that consisted of intense, excessive, and persistent worry and fear. It lead from physician advised treatment to self medicating of Xanax.

On August 23rd Ciara was intentionally poisoned. She consumed what she thought was an Xanax pill, but it was laced with Fentanyl. 22 years stolen, leaving behind unfathomably visceral pain for her loved ones who miss her dearly.

Healing Hearts

Hi, thanks for stopping by!

I want to tell you about my Crystal and the beautiful human being she was. I’m talking about her inside, who she was, her character and her heart. From a very young age she was so much fun! Silly, funny and so full of life. She had some electric personality that drew people in.


She was very special, full of light, love, humor and substance. She had a lot of fans, but I was her biggest fan. She was smart, talented and so much good wrapped up into one! She was also a warrior… she had a strong, helpful and protective way about her. A value system and a heart of love, empathy and compassion for people. Mostly the underdog. 

If there was a bully or someone being belittle, hassled or harmed in anyway, she had no fear and was right there to protect and defend. She stood up for them or the cause, always “fighting “ for the right things and good things she believed in. Crystal loved animals, children, she loved doing family things and her friends and most of all she adored her beautiful son.

Let the posts
come to you.

Thanks for submitting!
