Dear Cousins, I know how sad you must be feeling with the absence of your mother and my heartfelt sympathy goes out to you all. I know that the love and memories that Aunt Cy left you will sustain you for years to come. I will always remember her donut hair style forever, as well as her black eyeliner, blue shadow and broad smile! Eternal life is the most important decision you will make in this life. Heaven is a real place and there is but one way there. Trusting in Jesus and making Him Lord over your life. Heaven never ends and it has everything that God ever had planned for you from the beginning. We live with Jesus forever! I pray that you will seek Jesus Christ as your savior, ask forgiveness for past sins and have eternal life in heaven forever. I did and I am looking forward to seeing my precious mother and family that has done so, too, and gone to heaven before me. God bless you all. ~Shawna Weiss Annie Laurie Vincent's daughter
