Almost a year later and I just ran into Valerie. I was so saddened to hear of whom I used to call "Mrs. Parsons" passing. Too soon, too young. I met her when Karen and I were in 6th grade. Karen (her youngest daughter) had just enrolled in Cook School. We became fast friends and I spent many weekends and sleep overs with other girls at their family home. Cindy and George were very loving and welcoming parents. Karen and I graduated high school and went separate ways but during one of the last Summers before we graduated I took a 3 week trip to Lake Tahoe with Cindy, her new husband Rob and Karen. Cindy was the cutest - always bubbly and she loved Kris Kristoferson. She made a nice home and place for kids to be themselves. She had a smile that wouldn't quit...I loved when she dressed up for Halloween as Raggedy Ann. I remember Tina the family dog and I see that Cindy is flanked with two doggies in this pic. I am so sorry for Karen and Valerie and Cindy's extended family. She was a gem. Love, "Chris"tine Hall - Chula Vista.

Quack aka Cyndy was my dear friend for over 39 years, we met and worked together at Western Mutual, in CV and became great friends from the start. I named Cyndy, Quack in 1974 (and the name stuck) because we were always quacking around. Anyway time we were together we always were laughing and having fun. My dear friend Quack will be missed so much...I Love you Quack....Cathie aka Quackie (as Cyndy named me 39 years ago) Harvey-Sanders

There are not enough words to explain how amazing of a person my Grandmother was. She was a second parent to me after the passing of my Father. She was a very interactive Great-grandmother to my children, taking care of them 2 days a week since they were born. I am happy to have the greatest memories with my Grandmother.

My dear Aunt Cyndi, the one who always said the right things at the right times, so comforting, sweet and caring. As a child I remembered her as the lady with the pretty legs. I am thankful to have been able to have such a wonderful aunt, truly blessed. Rest in Paradise Aunt Cyndi.

Sad to say goodbye to my mother's little sister. Aunt Cynthia will be forever with us. I am thankful for the happy life she lived. She leaves a legacy of loving, quality kids and grand kids. Who could ask for more?
