DISH GARDEN WITH FRESH FLOWERS was sent by Tim Soplanda.

Thinking of you during this difficult time. I will always remember Cindy as a source of strength and determination, courage and generosity, wisdom and support while I was in high school. To be honest, she helped shape the person I am today. She will be missed. With sympathy, Tim Soplanda

I am so sorry I have to work Friday night and Saturday and that I cannot be there to give hugs and tell stories about Cindy. She was in our Knox Class of 1971 for awhile when she was in Junior High and has been a friend ever since. Of course you couldn't meet Cindy and not be a friend for life - so many good laughs! She was a dear person who gave of herself in so many ways. God bless all of those who will miss her so dearly.
