Cindy.... One of the greats. Rare genuine souls such as hers are priceless. More precious than rubies. I met her when I trained her while working at WPCOG in years past. It broke my heart to know she was sick and still does- as she did nit deserve the suffering but she is at rest now. May the family find comfort in knowing that her smile is lighting up heaven and to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord our creator.

I worked with Cindy at CVMC in Communications. She was a wonderful lady that was as classy as they come. It really hurt my heart when she got sick. No one deserves to go through what she did. At least now she doesn't hurt anymore and she is resting in God's arms. My heart goes out to her family and friends.
