Cindy was a great athlete, a wonderful student and an enthusiastic and caring teammate to the players on her Bolles teams. It was my honor and privilege to coach Cindy at Bolles and thoughts of her bring memories of kindness, strength, leadership and joy. I am grateful for these memories and I know she will be missed as she has made so many contributions to others and left such a great legacy. My thoughts and prayers are with her family and many friends.

Bob, Hunter and Ethan,
Cindy and I have been colleagues for over a decade in Bethune but also close friends. She spoke of you often and clearly loved you each very much. As much as Cindy could challenge you, she always did it to help you become better. Her positive spirit and action oriented, "can do" attitude was a force that we all needed in our personal and professional lives. She has had a huge impact on my life and I will continue to face the world differently because of her. I'm heartbroken for you and her entire family at this sudden and tragic loss. You will remain in my thoughts and prayers.

I’ve known Cindy for many years. I met her through her dear sister Susan. Cindy always had a beautiful smile and a warm greeting no matter what. She was a blessing to all those around her. Cindy loved to have fun and if you were anywhere near her that is what you had FUN! Whether it was at the pool or in the mountains Cindy lived to the fullest. When we would go to the July the 4th fireworks she and Susan would always let us out and park the cars. They had it down to a science. To remember that may seem silly but it again showed how loving and giving Cindy was and how much she and Susan care about people. It was tough finding that parking place.😍 Cindy and her family became my family.I love and will miss you dearly Cindy. God bless you
