I had a very different relationship with Cindy. My relationship was not based on sports, it was more like a companionship. Being her "gay" friend allowed her to say and be whoever she wanted to be. Don't get me wrong she loved us going to the pubs, bars and of course happy hours around Cardon. Then the side of going to the gar clubs, she said it was so fun to watch, drink and dance with no worries of being hit on. Then we both had issues at that time so we just hung out and talked or go walking.
The sad part is I vanished for some time due to a illness I didn't understand and so many of my friends I loved dearly had been left behind. I watched on Facebook Cindy's life we spoke every now and then. I had moved away and left her behind.
All of this happened and after many years of fighting a illness planted in my head a doctor at last came to my rescue.
I was very lucky, we moved back up north and me and Cindy decided we are going to pick up where we left off. I had the honor to see her laughing, be mad and remember, this was about 6 weeks before her passing. We ended or 6 hour visit with "there are no more excuses now we can see each other when ever". Now I will have to wait again. I love you Cindy and always have and will.

I always looked forward to Cindy's fb post and pictures. There has never been one person I've known that smiled so much, even when life was hard, never failed ... Cindy was still smiling. You are missed already. This was sudden news to hear that you are gone from us. Heaven just got even better than it was before you got there. Say hello to all our blessed angels Cindy. And thank you for making our lives better with you in it.

I was shocked and am saddened to know that I will never be able to catch up with dinner and drinks or to see your infectious beautiful smile. You may be gone from this Earth but you will live on in my memory forever. Fly High my sweet friend and I'll see ya later.
Cindy and I worked at Cardon Healthcare together. Her birthday is September 17th and mine is the 18th so we always celebrated our birthdays with a potluck lunch at work. We would always try to get together for dinner and drinks when I came in town. The last time we spoke we were unable to hook up with each other because she was going to be in New York. She will be forever missed by so many friends and loved ones. I thank God for not letting her suffer long. Rest Easy in his arms sweet friend.

I worked with Cindy for years. She always had that beautiful smile and made me laugh. She was so proud of her girls and I know was a terrific mother. We would go out dancing and always had so much fun. We lost track of each other for a few years. I am so sorry and my prayers go out to her children and family. Kathy Smith
