  1. Cindy and I were classmates at Trinity. We quickly became close friends, and I considered her to be a dear sister-in-Christ. To Cindy: Sis, I love you and I miss you. Give Emanuel and Dee Dee my love. Until we meet again.

    My deepest condolences to all of her friends and family.

  2. Anthony and Joe, sending heartfelt condolences for your family. I remembered her Love of Family, Dedication and unending Faith. She left a lasting impression and touched the hearts of many.

  3. ‘Lil Joe & Anthony,
    I’m at a loss at what to say. I’m trying to be comforted knowing she is with her mom and my Aunt Anne, but I am heartbroken. I think about and pray for you two every day, and wish I could be there for you the way your mom was always there for me and my family. Your mom was one of the best people I will ever know and I’ll carry my memories of her with me forever, as I know you will. My love and prayers to you both!

  4. Sandra, although I met Cindy for the first time just days before she passed, I felt very sad when you told me the terrible news. During the short time I was thankfully able to spend with Cindy, she counseled, encouraged and motivated me in the work I do with those who are disadvantaged, discouraged and disengaged in my community. I can’t imagine the sense of loss you must feel having lost a twin sister for whom you cared and loved so deeply all of your life. I wish there was more that I could do but please know that you and your family are in my thoughts and the object of my prayers.

  5. Joe and Anthony,
    Our heartfelt sympathy at the loss of your mom. Cindy would want you to know that she is at peace and right where she needs to be. The two of you, along with your families, were the light of her life and pride and joy. She will always be with you in the beautiful memories that you hold. Our thoughts and prayers to you and your families.

  6. Prayers for your families! Know she is a whisper away, keep her memories alive in your heart, until you can hold her again for all eternity

  7. Dear Joe and Anthony, I am so sorry for the heartbreaking loss of you beautiful, kind, loving mother. You boys were her absolute pride and joy and she always spoke of you with so much love. She is truly an angel.

  8. Sorry for Your Loss; I worked with Cynthia for many years at Sylvania, she was a very kind n loving person would do anything for you, also always having a kind word; happy n smile on her face;she touched alot of people there; she’ll be greatly missed.

  9. Dear Mark and Family: Prathima and I send our deepest condolences at you time of loss . Cynthia went home a little earlier than you and I .

    “ for God, so love the world, that he gave his only son, that whoever believes in him should not perish, but have eternal life”. John 3:16

  10. My heart aches for those left here on earth. I’m overjoyed for her resting in the arms of her Heavenly Father as she smiles down on all of you. I’ve know Cindy for along time and we both have a strong bond in the joy of knowing Our God. We spent a visit in Florida on a girls weekend years ago. Hold on to those memories of her before this happened and let them make you smile and your heart feel full when you think of her. Loss isn’t something you get over, you just learn to live around it. May God’s arms of comfort, strength surround all of you during this time of great loss.
