Her first-born great grandson: Waylon Cole Lawson,
Cindy had a huge heart and love to give to others, especially through her talent of
crocheting, sewing, and cooking. She loved Christmas time and always preferred to give rather
than to receive. Her most joyful moments were spending time with her family. Cindy just
recently became a great grandmother, to Waylon, and loved to tell everyone about him. She
loved making others giggle, telling stories of the past, and recalling memories that were
meaningful and full of fun.
Cindy accepted Christ, as her Savior, many years ago and recently rededicated her life to
The Lord, while on hospice. Once her eyesight diminished, Jerry would read the bible to her
nightly, it gave her comfort to sleep. We believe Cindy is happy to be at peace and home with
Jesus. We can only imagine that she is having the best Jones reunion ever!
The family would like to thank Jerry for the many years he has unselfishly cared for and
loved her unconditionally. Thanks and appreciation to Heart of Texas Hospice.
