  • Ashley, Sage & family,

    I was so saddened wen hearing the news of your mother’s passing. Every time I saw her, she always had a big smile and was so proud of all of you. One of the last times I saw her, we were in the line at the bank. Next thing I knew, she was at my window reaching in to give me a hug and telling me that Sage would be home for a visit that day. She was beaming! I’ll miss that smile and the updates on Sage’s travels!

We pray for strength and comfort for your family, keep her forever in your heart!

  • What a GREAT LADY! So sorry for the family’s loss. Cindy was always so nice when she came to the library. She had invited me several times to go horseback riding and I never made, boy do I wish I had. Just a few days ago I accidentally called her. Guess the Lord was telling me something….. She will be terribly missed by everyone she crossed paths with. She always had a smile on her face and I am glad I had the pleasure of meeting her years ago at the library.
