My memories of Cindy begin from when we first met at her parent's home. She was 11 or 12. I will never forget the warmth in that first meeting. Her Uncle Harold and I had come with our 2 year old son, Michael. It was evident that Cindy and her sister Vicki had inherited their mother's love of children. They showered our young son with attention to which he quickly responded. This was the first of many more visits and also introductions to other members of the Moore family.

In the years that followed, it became obvious to me that Cindy possessed one outstanding quality: friendliness. She was comfortable with whomever she encountered. That is an amazing trait.

I'm certain that those who were nearest Cindy are feeling an immense loss. Life will not be the same. But she has left you with many good memories and you will never lose those.

I'm sorry I will not be able to be there to celebrate Cindy's life. My thoughts will be with you and I will be praying for you as you make your way through this difficult time.

To the family of CYNTHIA KAY CRANE AKA (Cindy) .
Words can not express how much you are all appreciated for letting me and my family be a part of yours and Cindy lives. . From visiting to staying all night in your home to doing your grandparents funerals to having the pleasure of marrying some of the family.

I can’t even imagine the pain you all went through during the time Cindy was in the hospital. I prayed fervently day and night as well as others that knew her, but it was her time to go. My heart goes out to all of you and I am so sorry for all your lost.

Cindy and I became best friends when we met at Solid Rock Church while I was living in Muncie then I later in 2013 ended up moving to Liberty. Cindy was a good and faithful friend. We love to travel together and had many of laughs and sometimes we cried on the hi-ways.

We talked daily and sometimes several times a day. But when night time came we always had to end our day by talking one more time on the phone and she never never ever failed to say night I love you and I would say the same to her.

I will miss her greatly but now she is resting in the arms of Jesus and for that I am very thankful. She was one of a kind and a true friend and her memories will forever be in my heart.

Praying for you all in these difficult days ahead. I pray for peace and comfort that only God can give. If any of you ever need me day or night please know that even Cindy isn’t here on this earth I still want to be a part of your lives in the days and years to come and know I am here to help in anyway I can.

I love you all and you are all very dear to me. Until we all meet again God Bless I love you and praying for you all. Your family friend Doris Westerman.

PS. Cindy,
Good Byes
Are not forever,
Nor are they the end
They simply mean
We’ll miss you my friend
Until we meet again
Cindy Crane you will
Forever be in our hearts

Cindy was such an amazing woman. I cant even count the number of laughs, cries, and talks that I shared with her. From day one, she accepted me and the kids as her own. My heart hurts knowing she is no longer here on earth - but I know I will see her again.

Cindy and I have really gotten close over these last couple of years when she first started coming to New Life Ministries we begin to talk and get to know each other we sat together in church and usually had lunch together after church I'm going to miss our talks and our friendship two years ago we found out on Easter that we were cousins the weekend before she got sick she told me that she had seen her mom that had passed away standing in her doorway of her bedroom at home I didn't think anything of it I told her her mom came to visit her but now I know it was to prepare her for her last moments on Earth she's now in the arms of Jesus She'll always be missed by many I love you sweet friend

More of a friend than a step mom. Knew each other since we were little kids. Loved when you and dad came down to Florida and we all went to the Indian reservation and I played Bingo for the first time. Dad and I had one card and could hardly keep up and you had at least four and we couldn’t keep up with you lol! Heaven has gained another angel. Will see you again one day. ❤️❤️
