Cindi was a bright light to all of us throughout the years. From the time our children were small, she was a constant in our families guiding us through all the ups and downs in our lives. She was a wonderful source of creative ideas and helped many of us when planning birthday parties, weddings, baby showers, or decorating our homes. You could always count on Cindi to calm us down during stressful times and help us celebrate the great times. She was a wonderful mother and grandmother and a devoted friend through the years. She will be missed on earth, but God has an angel with new wings!

Dear family & friends of Cindi, I am so sorry for your loss. Cindi helped so many people including mine in both good times & bad. Heaven has gained a wonderful angel. I am certain that my daughter Rachel greeted her into Heaven with a huge hug.
God bless Cindi & you.

Like so many people in the community of Fair Haven UMC, I am at a loss for words. Cindi has been an institution here and has ministered to so many young lives. Her friends and family know the kind of impact she has had on so many people and I can only hope that it can bring you some measure of solace at this difficult time.

Cindi was always a ray of sunshine and lived her life to the fullest. We can all easily remember her smiling face. Was there ever a time the smile was not there?

Her decorating/design work in the youth lounge here is a daily reminder of her devotion to this church and it's congregation. Cindi now has a place in the heavenly community.

May God be with you all now and forever.

Mikey, Wanda joins me in saying we were so sorry to read this in today's paper. What a loss for you, your sisters and other family, and at such a young age. I know your mother had to have been so proud of the man you've become. Prayers for all of you at this sad time.

Shannon, Jamey, Casey, and Mikey,
Rand and I are so sorry for the loss of your dear mother. We were friends with Cindi in the 80's and 90's, and we fondly remember her as the wonderful mom, friend, and neighbor she was. Cindi was such a gentle person with an ever present smile, and you couldn't help but admire her and enjoy her company. We are so very saddened by her passing, and we know you and your children are going to miss her so very much.

Cindi is a stunning example of what it means to live sweetly, whole heartedly and gracefully. She took such tremendous care of all of those around her - never failing to connect on a sincere level and to be the shining light in every room.

I will truly miss the peace she carried within her and so naturally shared with others. Her smile, thoughtfulness and beautiful spirit kept me going through tough days -- her sense of humor, sense of fun and incredible taste in vintage items and cowboy boots kept me

Not sure if there will ever be another woman who could, in a single evening, help me with my downward facing dog, re-arrange my bookshelves, give me relationship advice and make me a killer margarita. One in a million.

Cindi, you'll always be a part of my life and a cherished friend. Miss you girl.

My deepest sympathy to her beautiful children and Clare Farlow, her sweet mother. When I met her so many years ago, I called her the cute lady because i did not know her name. She had the prettiest smile and I thought she looked like Princess Caroline of Monaco. Always charming, sweet and pleasant to all. What a sweetheart. Too young to be leaving this world but she is definitely a bright angel now.

I am so sorry for the loss of Cindi. To Jamie, Casey, Shannon, Mikey and all of her family, my prayers to you. I don't think I ever saw Cindi without a smile. She was a beautiful woman who was always helping others. Like Lanelle said, Cindy would calm us when our children were little and we were wrecks. She was busier than all of us but faced each day with a smile. I know she will be missed by all. She was a friend to everyone she met. An inspiration! May she be at peace in Heaven with God.
