"Cindy's big and warm heart shone through her smile and eyes. Though I had not seen her for a very long time, I will always remember her tender and kind spirit. Her outer beauty was matched by her substance and ability to make others feel welcome. Heartfelt prayers to all of you. ? Love, cousin, Debra Young"
