    Dear Kent, Richie, Mary Beth and Dave: Cindy was always one of those friends that I didn’t always see but when we talked it just picked up where we left off. I remember when Gina and Richie were young and I let them decorate their birthday cake. It was a mess with more sugar on top than inside. I thought Cindy was going to kill me! She was so thrilled to have her baby girl! Dave was the Bonus!! Our paths crossed often throughout our lives and I am so sorry for your loss. Cathy Rash

    Very saddened to learn of Cindy's passing. I've known Cindy since we were kids. My father coached her father in youth baseball prior to WWII. They remained friends, and when we were younger our families would socialize together. Cindy was a kind and caring person who always had the well-being of others in mind. She will be missed.
