Robert and Beth-
So sorry to hear about your mother. My thoughts and prayers are with you. I enjoyed our times working together on the paper.

So sorry to hear about Cindy. It has been years since I've seen her but I'll always remember what a wonderful person she was. I had the privilege of knowing both her and her sister Aleta. I admired both of them very much.

I have so many memories with Cindy and your dad. I spent weeks during summertime with them when Beth and Robbie were just toddlers! She taught me to make dolls, she was always available to talk and always let me help with whatever she was doing. She always managed to instill how important family was no matter what the conversation. She made me feel welcome every time. She was so excited to have the audible throughout the house! She had me go in different rooms to hear it! Whether we worked, cooked, or watched the Johnny Carson show, she (and Rob) always, always made sure Beth and Robby were 1st on the agenda. Just an amazing Aunt that I will always and forever truly miss.

Loved when she came down and went on a motorcycle ride with Rick. All the family gatherings she had. Will miss her.
