Cindy, my dear friend I met at SJCC over 35 years ago, we had such good times at the night clubs, concerts, exploring new eateries, hours of chatting on the phone, the yearly road trips, the delicious snack you baked for us. You where one of a kind, you left us too soon!! You were always so kind and caring, I will miss you forever. Thank you for the awesome memories. You will forever be on my mind and in my heart. “You are the wind beneath my wings”

I'm shocked and hurt to hear of your passing. You were such a kind and loving person. I'm sorry for any unwelcome thoughts or feelings you ever felt in your life because you deserved so much more. Say hello to my mom and everyone else in heaven. Thank you for your lucrative rocky road recipe. Rest in peace, you're home.

Dearest Cindy. Thank you for always being a beacon of light, especially for the younger comets at school. I pray that I can see you again someday when I cross the bridge into the other side. All my love is with you. You left us too soon.

Dearest Cindy,
I'm sorry I didnt get to tell you how much I appreciated our friendship. We went to elementary school together, and acquaintances in high school. It wasnt until later in life with James Lick Alumni/Booster Club that we reconnected. You were always supporting JL fundraisers. I will miss your smile, your greetings with a hug and your sweet laughter that you shared with me. God bless you my friend.
Takeda Family my condolences and my prayers will be with you all.

We weren't close friends but remained in touch on Facebook. You were so caring and nice. I was so proud to have you as a friend.

I was devastated to hear of your passing. You were gone way too soon from this earth. Through your passing, I learned to cherish every moment with friends and family. Life is too precious and tomorrow isn't promised.

To Cindy’s family—My condolences and prayers are with you all. ❤️

May You Rest In Peace, Cindy.

I remember our countless sleepovers. You got me into Hello Kitty everything! I loved eating those candies with you where the wrapping dissolved in your mouth. We shared the same birthday so I can recall my mom and your mom trying to coordinate our parties so we could both go to each other’s. I can’t remember you not being anything but kind and positive. You will be missed. Much love.

Hey Sister,
You stay close to my Bill up there with the creator. You're at peace now, Babygirl. I'll definitely miss those phone calls, laughing till my stomach was hurting. Your shoulders were definitely there when I heeded them. No one in this world could have asked for a better person to have been given to any of US and simply say...
"Cindy is my friend"
All the get togethers and reunions will have a void but you'll be with us ALWAYS

Dear Cindy,

My heart broke to hear you have left this earth. I will always have fond memories of our childhood. You were ALWAYS so sweet and kind .To this day, I still have letters we used to pass around in class (elementary school), whether it was on plain scratch paper to beautiful Hello Kitty stationary using colored pencils/pens.....and the greatest slumber parties we shared! I’m also grateful for our latest BBQ’s and pizza nights we shared with friends. I can only wish we had more. I’m learning a hard lesson by your passing and that is to embrace the times you share with friends and family and to work on more connections, because we don’t know if we have tomorrow. 😢
To Cindy’s family—My condolences and prayers are with you all. ❤️

Rest In Peace, Cindy. XO 🙏🏼

Cindy was an awesome lady. We shared so many memories in high school. She was so talented musically and we spent many days together. Even over the years, we remained in communication and she was still so kind, thoughtful and caring. She is missed already! I’m so sad that the world is minus one of the best people I’ve ever known. Goodbye my dear friend! I love you always...
