Our deepest sympathy to the family for the loss of Cinda, our friend for many years at Club View Villas, Ormond Beach, FL. Her caring, giving spirit will be missed by all. May she rest in Peace, Hal and Barbara Marks

To Eric and the entire family, I was saddened to learn of Cinda's passing today in the Daytona Beach News Journal. When I was the golf pro at Oceanside I can truly say the club was a better place when she was there. I always respected the fact that as she aged she always worked on improving her game. My time with her on the practice range giving her instruction are some of my fondest memories of Oceanside. During a time in our society when honesty and integrity seem to be more of the punch line to a joke than a way of life, Cinda lived those values. Class, integrity, honesty and the caring for others was what she was all about. I missed her when I left Oceanside and today even more. I was blessed to have in my life and I know I am a better person because the time I spent with her. May God bless the entire family at this time. Mark Dunn
