    I did not know Cynthia, by I do know her son Timmothy J Printz. He has always talked of his love for his mom. While I did not know her, I do know that she raised a very kind hearted, generous Christian man, who would give the shirt off his back to anyone who needed it. What better legacy can you leave? I’m so sorry for your loss Tim and family. You are in Jessica and I’s thoughts.may you find peace during this terrible time of grief.

  3. Mom,

    I will miss discussing our family history with you and your memories of growing up in West Acres.

    Will miss watching The Black List with you.

    You are the best mom a son could ever wish for and you will always be my first Valentine.



  4. I could not have hand picked a better mother in law. You were always encouraging and kind to me – never ever judgmental and I so appreciated that and needed that. I love you and miss you. You will always have a special place in my heart.
