Gone Home! So it is with Aunt Cinda. While still in her teens, Aunt Cinda sought the Lord and became an heir
to that beautiful home called Heaven. About 8:15 p.m. Monday night, her soul took its flight to claim its
Rachel Lucinda Day was the daughter of Wilson "Dad" Hays and Matilda Sturgill Hays. She was born August
22, 1893, making her stay here on earth 72 years, 9 months, and 15 days. Her mother, three brothers, and
two sisters preceded her in death.
When only sixteen years old, she was married to Billie Day. They lived a devoted and happy life until the
good Lord called her tired weary soul to rest to await the redemption of the body.
Aunt Cinda leaves to mourn her passing; her husband, Billy Day; her Father, Wilson Hays, who is 101 years
old; her son Billie; eight grandchildren; five great-grandchildren; three brothers; Henison Hays of Ohio; Woodrow
Hays of Indiana; and Johnny Hays of Hazard, Ky.; two sisters; Mrs. Sarah Wilson of Tennessee and Eurilla
Salyers of Letcher, Kentucky; many relatives and a host of friends.
Aunt Cinda was baptized into the Old Regular Baptist Church on December 24, 1913. She was truly a
Christian. For nearly 53 years she has been letting her light shine that the world might see her good works and
glorify the Father who is in Heaven. She was often heard to say, "I am taking my bible for a road map". With
such an accurate map there was no need for error.
If every person to whom Aunt Cinda had done a kind deed or given good advice were to bring a lily to her
grave, she would truly sleep beneath the "Lilies of the Valley".
To Aunt Cinda's relatives and friends, I'd like to say, "Don't let this be good-bye, just so long for a little while".
Let her good life guide you to that beautiful home where she is enjoying the blessings of God forever and ever.
Where she will sing, shout, and praise the Lord eternally while the ages roll on. May God bless the fond
memories I have of her and heal all our broken hearts. So long, Aunt Cinda, for a little while.
