Who was Cindy Meloche – and what made her special? She was a devoted mother, sister and loyal friend. Cindy was always there for others whether it was for Michael, whom she was extremely proud, or her aging parents and sister Debbie as they became ill, or her many loyal friends. She was a good person, who touched our lives in so many different ways. She was always willing to offer a hand to help others, and was there for you with a smile in good times and bad, and certainly had an impact on the lives she touched. Eleanor Roosevelt once said, “Many people come into and out of our lives, but only true friends leave footprints in your heart.” Cindy certainly was one of those. Cindy was truly a success story. Hard work was her middle name whether preparing for or traveling and doing her many shows and festivals, all across the country over these many years, or fixing up her houses, or gardening and canning. Whatever she did, she did with gusto. She also had a sharp eye for a good yard or garage sale and could bargain with the best. Her desire to get back to work and on the road again helped keep her going through periods of deteriorating health and chemotherapy treatments during her difficult battle with cancer. As hard as it is for everyone, let us take time to shift our thoughts about how much we will miss Cindy to remembering those many happy laughing, comical times we shared with her. We need to relive those moments, enjoy the thoughts and SMILE. A few words from an unknown author seem appropriate. In part they read. “When I am gone, release me, and let me go. You mustn’t tie yourself to me with tears. Be happy for the beautiful times we shared. But now it’s time I travel on alone. So grieve a while if you must, and if you need me I won’t be far away, for life goes on.” Cindy, we’ll miss you dearly. Our family wants to express our heartfelt thanks to all who have given their support, compassion and love throughout this very difficult time. We know Cindy would not want us grieving too long. Rather, let her memory live in our hearts. May God bless the soul of this wonderful, strong woman and may she rest in peace.
