I was Cindi’s roommate when she met Jack and I was her maid of honor at their wedding. She and I had so much fun together, she was funny, kind and the best friend ever. All she ever wanted was to be a wife and mother so she was so so happy to be marrying Jack and over the moon when Rett was born. We drifted apart as she concentrated on raising her family, and the last time I saw her was when she was working at Dress Barn a few years ago. I was so shocked and saddened to see her obit, my heart is breaking for Jack, her kids and grandkids. Cindi was really special and I will never forget her.

I never met Cindi personally, but through one of her sisters my best friend, Amy Semler . The stories I got to hear about her and her sense of humor and kindness and love of family was like I had known her all my life.
I said many prayers for her through this awful illness that she suffered from and did it like a champ. But as I explained to my granddaughter the other day that God needed another beautiful flower for His Heavenly bouquet of angels. One day her family will meet up with her again and be part of a special bouquet.
Cindi, May you Rest In Peace and be singing and cheering with angels of God and watch over your family from above.
