We met Cynthia at the Bittner company picnic. She was a beautiful, kind lady. We talked for an hour with you both about life and families. We were so sorry to hear of her passing.

Charlie and family
I don’t know where to begin. We didn’t get to visit as much as we should have but you all have always been in our hearts. Cindy was such an amazing person and was so loving and beautiful to everyone she met! I loved her love of life and family which reflected through her love of God. I know she’s in God’s arms now and her beautiful smile is making heaven even more special
Love Tina, Del and Emilee

We will truly miss seeing her from time to time when we visited the Lorences. May God wrap his loving arms around your family and give you peace and comfort in the days and weeks ahead.
