Prayers for friends and family. Cindy will be missed by so many. While visiting to pick up some materials Mark was telling them about our son starting to collect old bottles. She left for a few minutes then came back with some bottles for him. Thanks so much Cindy. I will always remember our friendship and sleep overs during our school years. Rest in peace Cindy.

Condolences for the family, taken home way to young. Favorite memory would have to be the times on the ball field with our sons battling it out for the win. They were friends, but always on different teams. Remember when Jodes was pitching, my son Dillon at bat. Cindy stood up and yelled loudly. “ Look who is at the plate, better change your pitch boy !” Fly high and Rest In Peace Cindy
