My sister was my best friend we could lift each other up when we didn't know how to keep going. She was an amazing sister. She will be missed by many. I love you my sister. Fly high. Until we meet again. You have been healed by the power of God.

My dear Cindi, Was so shocked to hear of your passing. Even though we were not directly related by your dad (Earl) and my aunt Rosie Pittman Weeks who was brother and sister in laws, never got to meet any of you so missed out on a childhood of memories. But so glad to acquaint with you on fb and looked forward to your wonderful, uplifting, encouraging posts which showed your strong faith in God and you sharing your paralysis with me and me sharing my partial paralysis was an even greater bond between us. I have missed you the last several months not seeing you on much after March 21. And will miss you much more in coming months! And would like to extend my sympathy to your beloved family in their great loss also. I know you are soaring like an eagle now! Love in Christ, Marian Smith Zuhn

My dear Cindy, was in shock to hear of your passing. We were directly related through you dad (Earl) and my aunt Rosie Pittman Weeks but never got to meet her brothers & sisters so missed out on lot of childhood memories. But so glad fb brought us together at last and so enjoyed our chats sharing with me about your paralysis and me sharing with you about my partial paralysis which was a stronger bond with you. So looked forward to all your posts that were so encouraging, uplifting, and showed me your strong faith in God. I know you're soaring like an eagle now too!

I remember Cindi and I riding up and down the road in her little gold Ford Pinto singing our hearts out to all our favorite songs on the radio and just having the most fun just hanging out together, we would go to the store and get the small pony size beers and ride all night or at least until our curfew? Funny thing is we were almost always late getting home , we didn't care though, cause we always had good times together. Will miss you my sweet friend, love you. Angie

Christy, we are thinking of you and your family. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

Wish I could be there tomorrow, but unfortunately I have other matters that can't get change. However, that doesn't stop the memories of mamaw ( Mary Lee Weeks Pittman) of bringing me to see you when you worked downtown at the dress shop. Since as an adult, we reconnected thro fb, and uve always been positive on your worse days during your battle with MS. I'll miss the graphics and warm wishes on holidays and birthdays as well. You'll be missed by many, but loved by many as well. You can carry on those convos with my dearly beloved mamaw as well. Until we meet again sweet lady.

I chose to light a red candle for Cindi because of the bold color. Our families, our parents were friends, her grandmother was just like a grandmother to me, her Mom and Dad treated me and my brother like we were there's- Cindi was always laughing, larger than life character, bold and beautiful. We, all of us, Cindi, Donnie, Lisa and me would all sing at the top of our lungs, dream our dreams, build forts out of leaves and imagination, we watched each other get baptized in the same church... so many wonderful memories to hold onto. I was blessed to have this family as part of my childhood.
