    “God saw that you were tired
    A cure was not to be
    So he wrapped his loving arms around you
    And whispered, “Come to Me.”

    As we mourn the loss of our beautiful, witty, tender-hearted “Cinny,” we are eternally grateful and thank God that he placed her in our lives so many years ago. We will forever hold her close in our hearts.

    She had the voice of an Angel, but never flattered herself by thinking so. In fact, she would be embarrassed and mad at me for saying it:). But it’s true, and I know hers must be one of the most beautiful voices in heaven singing praise to her Heavenly Father, her Redeemer.

    We offer our heart felt condolences to her West family, her cherished siblings and their spouses, her beautiful nieces & nephews, all those who loved her dearly and especially her boys, who she loved & treasured above all.

    Rest In Peace, our dear Cinny. We love you forever.
