So sorry to hear of Cindy's passing. She and I were Tri-Sigma Sorority sisters at Northwestern. She was such a sweetheart! I still remember her pretty little petite face and her blonde pageboy haircut! My heart goes out to her family! May your memories help you to smile during this difficult time.
What a blessing to our family. I will always remember the trips to Florida, the afternoons on the warf, the way she touched my children and grandchildren with her special love, and especially how she made my brother complete as his his best friend and loving wife. I love you, brother!
All I can say is I am sorry for your loss of a wonderful lady. She always had a smile on her face that would light up the room. I lost my husband less than 9 months ago. He was and still is my life. He had Parkinson Disease for our entire married life. GOD gave me the gift of taking care of him till the very end. My husband, Mike and your wife, Cindy were fighters and never gave up. They both fought a good fight but in the end there was no cure to be found. The easy part was is taking care of a love one, the hard part is living with out them. I truly wish I could give you some advice or help you in some way. My prayers are with you Charlie, I in a way do know what you are going through. The world is a better place, because of Cindy and my husband, Mike both of them touched the hearts of everyone they met. We both were the lucky ones to have a wonderful spouse. I am sorry.
Charlie and Family, It was really sad to hear of Cindy's passing.I remember her with great fondness. I always remember her great smile and the compassion she showed to others. The last time I saw her was at our 25th High School Reunion. Since I have lived in Idaho for so many years I rarely had the opportunity to visit with friends from high school when I came home for a visit. I will always treasure the way she treated me with genuine kindness.

Thank you for sharing Cindy with all of us. The children and adults she touched with her words of wisdom, guidance and encouragement are forever in her debt.
Cindy was truly a treasure and my heart goes out to the family. She was such an awesome teacher-one of the best I encountered while raising my daughter.
I loved Cindy. What a wonderful spirit. My favorite memories are of her love for dancing. Still have an image in my mind of her dancing on the stage in the Ashworth Recital. She will be missed by all of us at Calcasieu Parish for her smile and her beautiful spirit.
