I’m so saddened to hear of Cindy’s death. As a kid I got to spend summer time with Cyndi.....we were even pen pals. Swimming, running wild at the farm, making crank calls on the phone party line, we both had such fun together. I have always held a special place in my heart for Cyndi and of course, I always will.
Cyndi, rest easy in God’s loving embrace.
