  3. I was so saddened to hear about Cindy.  I worked with Cindy at First Data and always enjoyed her sense of humor and comments.  What a loss to all and especially to her family that she was so close to and talked about so often.

  4. I wish that I had the words to say how sadden I was to hear of Cindy's passing.  Thinking of her always made me smile because of her infectious personality.  Having worked with Cindy, Marilyn & Brad at First Data, a fabulous family is missing a beat in its heart. The earth has lost one of its angels.

  6. Melody — I am so very sorry to learn of Cindy's death. I was trying to find you to let you know about a pending move to Mexico and came upon her obituary. I knew Cindy only through you, and know how strong your bonds were. Please know you have my deep sympathy. — Carolyn

  7. Marilyn, I only learned about Cindy after reading about your brother, Terry. I am deeply saddened. Maybe you don't remember me, but I went to UNC with Cindy and we lived next door to each other in Cross Hall. Yes, that was a long time ago but I have thought of her many times and about how close you 2 were. Cindy had the greatest personality and was always so funny! I remember she helped me through a really tough time back then. Somehow she knew exactly what was happening and she came to me with an understanding I did not know existed! I can't imagine how devastated you and your family must still be and especially now with Terry's recent passing. Please know I hold you all gently in my thoughts. This is such a cute picture of her. I will treasure her forever.
