Crystal took living and dying to another level. She made each day that my sister lived a special, joyful day. Not all days were filled with joy. There was so much heartache and physical pain to deal with. Nonetheless, Crystal made it like a dance. She allowed Marjie to grieve and weep and remember; whatever was needed for that day. You see, Crystal has a servant’s heart and she created an environment of love that enveloped every hour of Marjie’s day. She created an atmosphere of living to the fullest each hour of each day for Marjie, as if every day was her last. She decorated her room with colorful visuals, aromatherapy, pleasant sounds, welcoming friends and family to indulge my sister with hugs, cake, dogs, kisses, and her favorite TV programs. She even had the fire department take her downstairs so we could all go on an outing because that’s what my sister wanted to do that day.

Crystal Flores exemplifies compassion. Her soft and gentle nature, her empathy, and her willingness to serve others tells me that God has placed here right where she should be.


“Thanks so much for the excellent presentation yesterday.  The response from our residents has been overwhelmingly positive.  I think that your, from the heart message, really resonated with them.  Thank you so much for getting the conversation started.”


Meet Crystal Flores From Doulagivers of Seattle

My story begins with my very colorful parents. Two Hippies turned Nurses then eventually back to Hippies. My parents loved caring for others. Mom was a hospital nurse and dad was a mental health nurse. Although I wasn’t drawn to a nursing career, I knew I wanted to be an example of love and compassion, like them.

In 2015 Mom received a terminal diagnosis, brain cancer. My Mother; a walking talking medical dictionary, knew all too well what we were in for. Barely retirement age of 63, they had just started ‘The Golden Years’. I left my family in San Francisco to move in with them on the Oregon Coast. My main goal was to teach my dad how to live life without Mom. Three weeks into her diagnosis my father died suddenly in his sleep; heart failure. I became my mothers live-in primary caregiver, 24 hours a day. I loved & cherished every moment of her final months. I felt a spark inside that lead me to do Hospice Volunteer work that eventually lead me to start a non-profit business; Your Ultimate Love Story’.

Your Ultimate Love Story is a Holistic approach to care for the dying AND their families during this very delicate time. We offer Companion Care, Respite Care, Coaching for loved ones, Document Organizing, Housekeeping & Organizing, Life Review Art, Personal Errands, Bereavement Care & Coaching, Honor Ceremony, Vigil Planning, Home Vigil Setup & More.

You see, they lived *THE* Ultimate Love Story, I’m just finishing up the chapters for them.
