Cindy was such a sweet person. We attended Model together for 10 years. I haven't seen nor spoken to Cindy in a very long time. Often, I would pull out school yearbooks, remember those days. Thank you for posting pictures,
especially her on her bike. You've lost a beloved member and the coming months will be difficult. Never forget she loved and treasured each of you.. Cindy is now free of pain and the troubles of life, Rest in peace, my old friend

R.i.P., Cindy. We got to share 12 consecutive yrs growing up together in a single class @ Model. With Bob-E, we sang in vocal competition & u & I doubled-dated those MCHS guys. I envied u r smile & ability to quickly devour “fiction.” Good Memories abound. Prayers for son & brother & family.

You will always be remembered by me and many of our Model High classmates as sweet, pleasant and fun. May God comfort your family.

I remember at her mother’s visitation she said she would move wherever her son lived. She and her mother lived far part and hard to see about each other.

So sorry to hear about Cindy. We attended school together from 1st through 11th grade. Spent the night at each other's houses and had a lot of good times growing up together. Last saw Cindy at our 40th class reunion. She was one of the ones I immediately recognized when she walked in. Was good to see her. Always bad to lose a friend and classmate. Will miss her.

Michael,
I am so sorry to hear about your Mom! She was always so sweet to all of us Kemp's. We always loved when she and your dad would come visit us. I will always remember her reading all the time ! You and Jessica and the boys are in my thoughts and prayers.
Luv Patti
