  3. Marissa, Scott, and Kelly

    I don’t think you knew me at all. I was your mother”s cousin on her mother’s side. I do know that you all have had to deal with some difficult times in your lives I am very sorry about that and I am truely sorry for your mother’s passing. I just wanted to say that I knew your mother while I was growing up in Iowa and I remember a pretty, vibrant and cheerfull red-headed girl with a contageous smile. I know this does not lesson the burden on many of your memories but I felt I had to let you hear another piece of your mother’s all too short and challenging life. And it is my sincerest hope that you will not dwell to much on the not so pleasent memories and just please continue to be the kind, honest and hopeful children that I know you are and Cindy–deep inside always wanted you to be.

  4. I was saddened to hear about the loss of Cindy. I first saw Cindy when Kelly was a newborn and ran into Lauri, Cindy and baby Kelly in a steak house. Since then there have been many years of on again, off again memories with all three, all separate from each other. Cindy got me the job I have now 19 years ago and I am very greatful for that! My daughter Kelly and I are so sorry for your loss.

  5. We just wanted to let you know how sorry we are for your loss. We wish we could be there with you at this time and give you each a hug. Cindy and Randy are the same age and it’s hard to believe that she could be gone. Remember all the good memories and know that all of your “Iowa Family” love you all and are keeping you in our thoughts and prayers.

  6. Scott & Meg,

    We want to send our deepest regrets about your loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

    Love Rob, Audrey, Brian & Jackie

  7. Marissa, Scott, and Kelly,

    I’m not sure you know me, but I’m one of your mother’s younger cousins. I was eight years younger so I was not as close to her as I was to other cousins my age, but I remember her as my older cousin with beautiful red hair and a person who was very kind with a great heart. I know she has struggled with depression for years and while it is hard to understand, it is a real disease – my wife struggles with it. As it says in Acts 15:8, God knows people’s hearts. My prayer is that God will give each of you peace, comfort, and understanding.

  8. I’d like to send more condolences from Iowa, being one of your mom’s cousin’s on her dad’s side. I remember Cindy’s patience and tolerance of all of us younger cousins when we were together. She was always the mature and level-headed example for the rest of us. We looked up to her in many ways; as an avid reader & scholar, devoted school band member, & what I remember most….a perfect seamstress. She was great a making doll clothes! We watched the webcam today and it was a great tribute to Cindy. Marissa, you were absolutely awesome! Your heaetfelt words about your mom was the best part of the servie. I can only image the pride she felt today. God bless each of you.
