My life is better because I had Cindy as my friend.
I loved her and I'll miss her terribly.

I am still in shock that Cindy is no longer here on this earth with us. She was such a beautiful person inside and out, and she will forever be missed.

Cindy’s spirit and generosity were like none other. She touched everyone that was lucky enough to know her and I am forever grateful for all the good times we enjoyed together the last few years.

I cannot begin to express how sorry I am. Vic, just know I am thinking of you in this difficult time and extend my heartfelt sympathy to you and your family.

Fly High Girlfriend, I love you!

What does one say that has not been said about this wonderful person. She was the star that lit up a room when she was in it and everyone knew it. Vic , you were also a great husband for her and her friend as Cindy and I would talk about the old times at the old restaurant at Island Cove . Just a beautiful lady inside and out, that all will miss her as I know the family are at a loss at this time, but I hope reading some of these post from friends will help all in the family just how much this lady was loved by all. This a verse that I thought was very appropriate at this time
. Luke 20:36
For they cannot die anymore, because they are equal to angels and are sons of God, being sons of the resurrection.
What a blessing I had in life to even have the pleasure to know this lady and will miss the great hugs she always would give me. May the Lord give each of the family some shoulder to give you comfort at this time for your loss

What a beautiful person inside and out! Cindy was a great friend that will be greatly missed. Everyone that knew her loved her. Jimmy and i met up with her and a few other friends at Beef O Bradys just the other day as we did when we all could and had a great evening. Lots of laughing and good conversation so glad we went. We will miss seeing her smiling face at Sweeneys, it won't be the same without her. Prayers for Vic and her family and friends. ❤
