The starting of school and seeing the school busses made me cry. I miss Cindy so much and her laugh still is live in my mind. I can hear her say, "oh, girl" in all the ways that only Cindy could. Peace to you, dear family. Cindy is great missed.

There are no words to express the thoughts we feel. This we know there is a spoke missing from life's wheel. You made imprints upon our hearts, a print that will never fade or part. We love you Cindy even when we were miles apart.

Prayers for your mom, sister, brother and family.

Cindy will truly be missed by me and her bus kiddos. She always had kind words when she came through the office. I loved when she'd stop and visit. Several students stole hugs from her in the mornings when she came into the office. My condolences to her family. She was a great lady.

Remembering you.
Cindy was a true sister-friend from the day I met her. I will miss her ferocious loyalty, kindness, and best hugs. I will also miss our most hilarious times together.

One of the most sweetest, kind-hearted people I have ever met. Cindy will be deeply missed by so many, especially all of her kids that she held close to her heart. They absolutely adored her. RIP sweet lady.
