Cindy was a very caring person and a wonderful friend to so many of us. She had a great sense of humor and never forgot anything - one could always rely on Cindy to keep the facts, instructions, directions, etc. straight for everyone. Unfortunately, her physical health couldn't match her mental health. We shall miss her - it's sad to know she is no longer with us.

Farewell to a dear friend - we hope she is in a wonderful place with not a care in the world, just the pleasure she deserves.
Our prayers to her family,
Joanne and Bob Webster, Vero Beach, Florida

Cindy was a great person and will be deeply missed. Always had time for a smile, and I loved seeing her at our monthly birthday lunch. RIP Cindy

We, the ladies in the Vero Beach chapter of the Daughters of the British Empire (DBE) met Cindy in late 2005 and when she joined the organization in 2006 she was proud to be installed at the Annual Council Meeting held in West Palm Beach. The ladies in our chapter meet monthly and fundraise to help support Mountbatten House in Houston TX, one of the four Retirement Homes the DBE own in the USA. Over the years friendships have grown as our fundraising continued along with visits to the theatre, movies, dinning at home or lunching in local restaurants, games nights, early morning sunrise watches, going bowling and enjoying each others company especially during the holidays. Cindy was always eager to chat, laugh and share her thoughts and ideas.
We are sad to have lost a dear friend and know that she will be missed by all who knew her . We feel joy and love at having shared a small part of her life. God Bless you with love and peace Cindy as you transition to your next life.

Our deepest condolences to all her family and friends
