  • Cynthia was one of my favorite people. We met at Lake Erie in the 1970’s when she joined our groups of friends vacationing in Huron. I so appreciated her honesty and candor. Although we didn’t get to see each other after the 1980’s, I am glad she found true love with Joseph. She deserved it. Always in my heart.

  • Cynthia and Joseph were both so kind and loving. I was blessed to have had the opportunity to share the comforts and beauty with them in their gorgeous garden. They made me feel like family the minute I walked into their home and from that day forward it was always that loving gesture. How blessed I am to have know two of the most amazing people. After Joseph’s passing I had spent time with Cynthia and she had spoken of Joseph and how much they loved one another and how much she was missing him. So now they are forever together in one another’s arms and all the loneliness is gone. Forever happy once again. I will miss you my dear friend. Forever in my heart you have left such wonderful memories. Anita Geddes

  • I have known Joe and Cynthia since the early 90’s when I started delivering their mail on my new route. I sent flowers when Joe had his fall and they never forgot that. They helped me through some really tough times in my life and became very good friends. They were the nicest people anyone could find. Cindy took me on a pontoon boat ride, they took me to nice dinners out, and had me over for great ribs! Joe’s birthday was the day after mine and we always exchanged gifts. Lots of good memories! Cindy always sent some peach wine home with me after we shared some in her kitchen. I was at the hospital when the priest gave Joe last rites. I’m so glad they were a part of my life and will miss them so much. Rest In Peace . You’re together once again.

  • My deepest condolences to the Family on the lost of your dear loved one may God who binds up the broken hearted and comforts all who mourn strengthen you in your time of sorrow

  • What a beauty. So thankful for the last year just enjoying Cindy. She had a real witness with the nurses at Ohio Health. As miserable as she was, she still had her spunk. Always fun. Always honest. I loved when her nurse told me she, too, could see Jesus in her eyes.

  • Joe and Cindy were my neighbors for almost 30 years. They both were some of the most generous, caring and “brutally” honest folks I have ever known. Their pride and joy was the effort they put into making the backyard a real place of solace and beauty. It was truly a joy sitting with them in that beautiful setting… drinking our favorite beverages while engaging meaningful conversations about life.
    Sadly, I will miss their company and hospitality…rest in peace.
