Cynthia Griffin, 62, of Yelm passed away suddenly on February 21, 2023. She was born on June 17,1961 to Anita and Charlie Griffin and was one of five siblings.
Cindy, a cherished mother, sister and friend was preceded in death by both parents and two of her siblings; Charlene and Mikey. She is survived by her children Justin, Dillon and Becca and four grandchildren who she loved dearly. She is also survived by her long time partner, Scott.
Cindy will forever be remembered for her sharp wit, loving nature, and a smile that would brighten a room. She loved her family to her very core and never took any moment for granted. Her son, Justin, stumbled across these words and found them to be the absolute essence of what she would want to say to us during this time.
We hope these words echo in the hearts of those who loved her.
"Death is nothing at all.
It does not count.
I have only slipped away into the next room.
Nothing has happened.
Everything remains exactly as it was.
I am I, and you are you,
and the old life that we lived so fondly together is untouched, unchanged.
Whatever we were to each other, that we are still.
Call me by the old familiar name.
Speak of me in the easy way which you always used.
Put no difference into your tone.
Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow.
Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes that we enjoyed together.
Play, smile, think of me, pray for me.
Let my name be ever the household word that it always was.
Let it be spoken without an effort, without the ghost of a shadow upon it.
Life means all that it ever meant.
It is the same as it ever was.
There is absolute and unbroken continuity.
What is this death but a negligible accident?
Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight?
I am but waiting for you, for an interval,
somewhere very near,
just round the corner.
All is well.
Nothing is hurt; nothing is lost.
One brief moment and all will be as it was before.
How we shall laugh at the trouble of parting when we meet again!"
There is no scheduled service at this time.
