Only a Memory

Your smile, your laughter
...Only a memory.
Your voice, your personality
...Only a memory.

Sometimes people mention your name.
Some just keep quiet.
But no matter what is or isn’t said.
You’re always on someone’s mind.

Many years have gone by,
But it seems like only yesterday,
You were by your family’s side.

We can only think of whom you’d be,
To us, you only remain a memory.

It’s been a while since you’ve been gone.
For your friends and family, things just aren’t the same.
It still doesn’t seem real.
Who holds the blame?

If love could have saved you,
You’d still be here today.
The love we hold for you,
Will never change.

As you lay in a still rest,
God broke our hearts to prove he took the best.
Everything you did, everything you were.
It’s only a memory.

If there is a laugh and a smile that could brighten any day....It was Cyndy's.
Such a huge loss.

Cynthia was a huge personality. I remember meeting her at a family funeral back when we were sophmore's. My Grandma Katie, thought that Cyndy was me. Back at Boylan after the funeral, we laughed about my gramdma and our friendship was established after finding out we were distant cousins! Over the years, we would see each other and catch up. What a sweet, kind, incredible lady. Miss you.

I remember Cindy, smiling and laughing often. She was very friendly to everyone. When did she pass away? and how.

May sound silly, but I remember her little sneeze.

Cyndy was, without a doubt, one of the funniest and happiest people I've ever had the privilege of spending time with. Her laugh was infectious and her smile would light up every room. She was caring, thoughtful and gracious. I know my life is that much better having spent time with Cyndy. She is greatly missed.
