    Can’t make old friends they say. I know it sure hurts when we lose one. Cindy was one of the kindest souls we ever knew and her passing saddens us deeply.

    Cindy was my dear friend of over 30 years, a fellow pilot’s wife, car chick and one of the best, nicest, funniest people I’ve ever known. When I think of Cindy, I see her smiling and laughing like the time we all went to England together and wound up chasing Phil and her around a roundabout, they in their Rover, us in a Fiat!

    We had so much fun together doing so many things. She was always 100% enthusiastic about whatever she was planning or doing. So many people are going to miss her; I know I will. It’s hard to believe I won’t be able to call her to go to lunch.

    Phil, I can still see all of us touring England and having laugh filled dinners at the pubs and narrow boats, and us being squashed into the tiny seats at the Shakespeare theatre on the Avon River. .
    .
    Ray and I will miss her very much. Our thoughts and prayers are with you Phil and Donna and Leslie. .

    Philip, I’m so saddened to hear of the passing of your lovely bride, she sounds like a person I would have liked to have been around.
    It’s terrible to find out about someone in your past in this way, I’ll pray for you and your family.

    Phil, you and Cindy were two of my best friends for many years. It sadens all that knew her. We will all miss her dearly. I know too well the pain you are feeling. It helps ease the pain a little by keeping all the good memories of her in your heart.

    She will be missed by all who knew her. .

    Cindy was extremely artistic and creative. I own 2 of her paintings, which remind me of her. The house which she and Phil designed and built is full of her creative personal touches. She lived life to the fullest. The fact that she isn’t with us leaves a hole in our family.

    Dearest Phil,

    Words cannot express how much we will all miss Cindy. She was a shining Angel on Earth and always cheered up Glenn and me whenever we were around her! She will be missed so much by all of us!

    Sending prayers to you and your family for strength to get through one day at a time.

    Thanks for all the kind comments. This is the hardest thing I have ever lived through. Due to the Covid virus we will not have services now but plan to have them June 19 on our property east of Lebanon. She was happily and actively planing our new house. I miss her terribly
