I remember Cindy as one of the most personable persons I had ever met. I first met Cindy when I first joined the DMS 100 writing group at Nortel. Cindy helped me with Interleaf as I came from BNR with only MS Word knowledge. She was also always keen to help her fellow colleagues with understanding the products we wrote about. On the personable side, she was always friendly. She had a smile that could light up a room.

She will be greatly missed. Rest Cindy! You deserve it.

Cindy and I worked together at Nortel. She was always fun to be around. We kept in touch over Facebook all these years. I loved her political comments. I am going to miss my friend Cindy.

Cindy was my second cousin, daughter of my cousin, Ward. I always enjoyed being with her at family reunions and events. She was such a sweet person and she will be greatly missed. This was so sudden and a shock.
God Bless to all the family.

Cindy was such a bright spirit and gave so much to this world. Her fire, passion, and doggedness was inspirational. My children and I were lucky to have known her. She was our beacon through our darkest days and I will NEVER forget her. I love you, sister!

I remember one time we were together. We went to see Sir Paul McCartney. We were rocking, dancing and loving the music. She loved music and was so proud of Chris and his music. Cindy was so much fun to be with and such a sweet lady. I can’t imagine she ever meeting an stranger. She loved her boys. I’m sure she is missing Chris but is now with her Kyle. She spent time after his passing helping those with MH issues. She also had a passion for the underdog and did whatever she could to help them as well. Rest In Peace Cindy - No more sorrow, no more pain. Heaven has truly gained an angel!

We enjoyed having Cindy join our family as another grandparent. She was so sweet, loving and kind to us all. We will miss her, especially at holiday get togethers. I will be praying for comfort and peace for Chris and all those who loved Cindy.

I read this with great sorrow , Cindy was a very good person who was one of the writers who worked for me with Nortel. She was respected and liked by every one. We all have very many memories of her. I got to see her a few years back when I went back to Raleigh. I am very happy I got to see her. All of her family and friends will be in my thoughts

Debbie Bennett Bell, Cindy and I used to love to eat Morton’s Creme Pies with three spoons and commiserate with one another on our dateless status at Cary High School. Many fond memories of these these Musketeers and their antics at CHS. Thoughts and prayers are with you all and especially little Avery, whom I know she dearly loved. I always loved the picture of Cindy all “ princessfied!”
She is now pain free, but will be sorely missed by all who knew her.
