"Aunt Cindy was a very caring and loving person. She welcomed us with open arms when my family moved back to my dads home state. She was always fun to be with and great at making everyone around her happy. You can see from her wonderful children what a wonderful mom she was. She will be truly missed. God has another angel in heaven who will watch over us. Love you always Aunt Cindy."
"So sorry for your loss. I was blessed to have been able to work with Cindy at Casey's. There was never a dull shift when she was working or even if she just came in for a pizza. I don't remember what kind it was but I know it had pineapple on it. She always wanted me to try it but I always wimped out! She will be missed by all her knew her."

The angels looked down from heaven one night.
They searched for miles afar,
And deep within the distance
They could see a shining star.
They knew that very instant
That the star was theirs to gain,
So they took you up to heaven,
Forever to remain.
Look down on us from heaven.
Keep us free from hurt and pain.
You'll always be within my heart
Until we meet again.
