Someone Is Missing

Let this be a loving reminder
That someone is missing today.
Someone our hearts still hold on to,
As we travel along life’s way.
Someone who made life so special,
For all those who gather here,
Someone who won’t be forgotten,
But cherished from year to year.
And now, as we pause to remember
Let us all fondly recall,
How dearly each of us loved her,
And oh….how she loved us all.

Cissy loved her family dearly. She was the eldest of the grandkids and carried that title with pride. She was very protective of her family and loved ones and would do whatever was needed for their happiness. Cissy was a hardcore Pittsburg Steelers fan: “Gold and Black” all the way! She was also a big fan of wrestling. She enjoyed watching wrestling with her dad as much as she could.

Words were unsaid.
Laughter was cut short.
Smiles are unseen,
You left hearts broken,
Knowing you are
in heaven
Smiling down on us
with your Mom,
Brother, and grandma Nena by your side
Eases the pain of
our broken hearts.
Your loved ones
will miss you dearly.
