“I just heard today about Cindy's passing. I am shocked and saddened. I first met Cindy while doing an internship at the Anderson Gallery. She and I worked on the Anderson's collection, where I found a wonderful etching by Van Gogh. She was a bright ray of sunshine, as one can easily see in her wonderful smile. I will keep her family in my thoughts and prayers.

She later became a wonderful friend and changed my life in Virginia. She will be missed.
“I only learned today of Cindy's passing, and want to reach out to Jay and her family to share with you how she touched my life. I worked with her a few years ago as an artist advisor, and we spent hours together crafting word by word a new artist statement that could best communicate an art that operates outside of language. During that time I got to know her intimately, and was struck by her vision, her engaged questioning of her work and herself, and left our collaboration filled with her...
“I first met Cindy's work, in Austin & wanted to meet her then. Only a few years later did I get the chance in RVA. Kind, fun, and so very genuine, Cindy inspired me in many ways. I will never forget when we worked setting up Lucas Samiras' Mirrored Corridor at the VMFA; one day after lunch we lay down inside of our finished chamber to 'reflect' and ended up giggling in an-all consuming fit of laughter over the infinite reflections of ourselves. She was easy to LOVE. Profound Condolences...
“Cindy and I were classmates and friends in junior high and later. I remember most: her smile & laugh, and how she was always quick with a witty remark.
She and I were debate partners in speech class ... she always took the difficult side of the issue and left me the easy one. When I asked why, she just laughed and said it was more fun to take the part that required more creative answers. And so it was with her life. I will celebrate her memory.
“Jay,and Family, Neuschwander family, I would like to express my sincere condolenses to you for the loss of your loved one. Cindy was a friend forty-five years ago and the words of encouragement she expressed to me then still ring in my ears. She was an amazing person. I'll miss her. Sincerely, Stan Langston
