Mrs. Filo was always at our soccer games supporting Frank and the rest of us at school/club games. I will always remember her dedication and love for her family and friends. I am deeply sorry to hear about her passing.

Cindy's presence will truly be missed around the School of Management at UTD. It will not be the same, especially when one has a tech question even though David and rest of her staff are highly competent. However, we believe that she is in a far better place.

God Bless Cindy's family.

You always brightened up with any mention of your grandchildren. They were your shining stars and you were a shining star for us at UT-Dallas. We know you will continue to brighten up lives with such loving memories even in your departure to a greater place.
