Cindy was a kind person and so much fun to talk to and work with. I truly hoped she would make it through her battle as she had a zest for life and living it that many don't possess. She was so proud of her family and spoke of them often when things got quiet at work and she was a sweet and steadfast friend that I will miss always. My condolences to her husband, Steve and family. May I meet her again in heaven.
