Our thoughts, hearts, & prayers are with each one of the family.
I first met Cindy through my husband Eddie. He & David have been friends since kindergarten. I needed a hairdresser since the one I had was layed to rest way to soon. I was very skeptical-but Cindy was not only a very talented, conscientious, compassionate, lady-she was a true blessing, so full of life. I'm proud to have had known her.

I had the pleasure to know Cindy from the beauty salon....I was lucky enough to have her as my hair dresser...and she was also my therapist. She was a great listener. We shared so many stories and her stories included her husband, her boys and Isabella. The other grandchildren had not arrived. I really did love Cindy. God be with you all during this very sad time.
