“I just had to add a note from my pure black cat Felix whom Cindi helped rescue. One day I came home from work and my cat Max suddenly died of a heart attack right in front of me! Cindi knew how much that cat meant to me! Unfortunately Cindi & I were separated with a shake up @ DHHS. A couple weeks after I lost my sweet Max Cindi called me and asked me if I could take a cat that had been tossed into the alley to die! Well I said sure after I thought it over for a couple of days! Felix is...
You are in our thoughts and prayers!
“Cynthia, will be missed. She was my 1st cousin & we both spent a lot of time with our Grandmother, Elizabeth Hughes, when we were both quite young.After I graduated from High School I went to the town in Mass. where Cynthia lived with her parents.Again we spent a lot of time together. Really Cynthia was like a sister to me. I will miss her & will see her again.

“Thank you Sanford for informing me of Cindi's death. I remember when you married and Cindi's early years at NDHHS. She had a passion for social justice and service for those who needed it most. Please accept my deepest sympathy and prayer that God continues to strengthen you now and always.
Your journey has been hard and long, and it's not over. But you will reach the day when you think of Cindi and smile.
You took such good care of her. She was so fortunate to have found you.
Know she will never be far from you.
Thank you for being such a fine man and standing by Cindi. You were her valiant knight. Cindi was simply a wonderful person. We will be forever grateful for all the kindnesses she has shown us over this life. She will be missed. Our hearts ache for you. Let your tears be your prayers.
All our love,
Greg, Karen & Juliette Evans
“Cindi and I worked together for many years at HHS. We were very great friends for many more. She was someone totally trustworthy; in whom you could confide anything knowing your confidence would remain safe.
Working for child protective services could and often was very emotional. I remember how we would often vent to each other about our frustration of the day. I know that I sure felt better afterward. Maybe, Cindi did too when she came into my office on a similar task.
