Cindy was so funny and smart. We had incredible times together, growing up, trying to figure out what life was about. Listening to Joni Mitchell's Blue, emoting. She was silly and sophisticated, and brutally honest. I learned so much from her. My sympathies to her family. Karen

Jamie and Samantha,

No words can express my deepest sympathy for your loss. My heart goes out to you both. I know she loved you both very much.

As I sit here looking at her picture I am still in shock. My heart is broken. I cannot believe I will never see her again.

Your mother was my best friend and the most wonderful, intelligent,loving, kind and giving woman I had the privilege to know.

She will never be forgotten. I know I will carry her in my heart forever.

I hope she will be at peace now and be wih your dad again.

I will keep you both in my prayers and in my thoughts.

Janice

Jaime and Sam, we are so sorry about the loss of your beautiful Mom. We will always remember what a vibrant fun person she was when we were neighbors and all through the years you spent with our girls. It seems like just yesterday that we were car pooling all of you to dance or some other activity. Your Mom is finally at peace and we hope that you can find peace in knowing how much she loved you both. Love, Marise & Angelo

i am so sorry we've lost Cindy, your mom, your sister, my friend, so soon. She was great, larger than life in so many ways. She was my strength through an awful childhood, keeping me sane by making me laugh and helping me to "fit in". I wish so many many things could have been different and life could have been more gentle towards her. I miss her. I will pray for your peace.

I have so many memories I don't even know what to do with. So many secrets. As we grew older and our visits grew fewer, we could always catch up where we left off as if time had never passed. My heart is broken, but there is a place that will carry you until we can "catch up" again. I will keep our secrets safe. Ralph Waldo Emerson said, 'All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make the better". I am beyond blessed and forever grateful for every experiment we shared.My thoughts and prayers are with your daughters and sisters. May angels lead you in.. Love, Laura
