  1. As I think of our friendship, I begin to see Mere words can’t describe what you mean to me. When this cold, hard world has me lonesome and blue I look up to see my angel and that angel is you. You bring me sunshine to brighten my sky. You rescue me when I’m scared and alone. You take my hand to lead me home. No matter the miles that keep us apart, we’re always together in each other’s hearts. I will miss you…..

  2. Cie was a wonderful person and I have such fond memories of her at La Marina dancing the cha cha and at Julie’s 50th birthday party , I spent the evening with her and her daughter. She was such a joyous person and had such a wonderful and positive attitude about everything that is was calming to be in her presence. I am so sorry for your loss. My prayers and condolences go out to her family and friends.

  3. I met Cie through our employer, Forest City. She always had a smile and kind words to share. I had several opportunities to chat with Cie at various company events. i enjoyed every conversation! She would always make me smile and reflect on my many blessings. A Gift from God was she. To the family there are no words to truly express just how much Cie will be missed. I know she is wearing her angle crown and she is with God sharing a kind word, making him smile. You are all in my prayers. I am blessed to have known Cie.
