Halloween at the office - Velma & Scooby

Cindie was a wonderful woman, and one of my most beloved mentors. She never had an unkind word to say about anyone, and was one of the most selfless, honest, and graceful women I've ever known. She encouraged me throughout my training as a RN, and it was partly due to her influence that I became a NP. I admired the relationship she had with both patients and coworkers; she touched so many people's lives in her gentle way, and

I am so very sorry that the kids and I couldn't make the journey to be with the family on this very difficult day. Our thoughts are with you all today. I know it will be a long road ahead without Cynthia for everyone, but I pray for the healing to start today. I will miss her wit, wisdom and her ability to always see the funny side of things. May she finally be at rest on her loving Savior's breast. Godspeed Cynthia....

Sorry to hear of your loss....its always difficult to loose someone so close at age when we all look forwards to retirement. here among our friends and family. But when illness and suffering come in...sometimes its a blessing from God to bring that special lady home to peace and everlasting love with God. Nevertheless... we all feel the loss and ask God to help us through this difficult time. My heart goes out to Leon and Alice as I know since I recently lost my own mother, Aunt Lee. God be with you...

Love Cousin Chuck

Cindie was the best Mother-in-Law that anyone could ever hope for. She was kind and generous. She welcomed me into the family as one of her own children. I will always fondly remember the time she and I spent at the Flower & Garden Festivals.

My heart goes out to her children and extended family in this time of sorrow. She will be missed.

You can't think of Cindie without smiling. She was a kind and loving woman with a big heart. She was always so thoughtful, and I'll always remember how when she gave gifts she wrapped them so beautifully. She always said that when she retired she wanted to work in the gift wrapping section of a department store at Christmas time. Her loss will leave a large gap in the lives of those who loved her.

Aunt Cindie was such a wonderful woman and will truly be missed by all. Just seeing how many friends, co-workers, and family members have already shown their support is amazing. Growing up, our family get-togethers would not have been the same without Aunt Cindie. My heart goes out to everyone touched by her loss.

Georgie and Cindy at some BCCH OR party or another. Great times!

Oh Cindy, you will be missed by so many.
You were there to help and teach me in the OR when I was new. You came to my wedding, you were there when I had my babies. You took care of me in the OR and in Dr. Sherbin's office. I took care of your mom when she had surgery (a couple of times!). We shared so many Christmases, Birthdays, and "Liver Rounds" at Tutags or wherever we all got together.

The world has lost an amazing woman but heaven has gained an angel. I feel blessed to have learned so much from Cyndi when she was a nurse practioner for Dr. Sherbin and I was the Speech Path at Bi- County. She was well loved and respected by her colleagues and patients.

I am sorry I am unable to come share my sympathies in person....
