Dearest Cindy, Rest in Peace, lovely lady. I loved and admired how you always gave me straight answers. Truth-talkers are rare, and you were one. Thank you.
To the family sorry for your loss. May you find comfort in the promise that soon God will "swallow up death forever...and wipe the tears from all faces." (Isaiah 25:8)

I was introduced to Cindy in 2008 and worked with her closely until 2015. Whenever I was able to go to Skokie and work in the office, I would always stop by at the end of the day. Cindy was my end of day person, someone that I could talk to about what is going on and share experiences. We would pick each other up and usually end with some funny story, joke or just laugh at the situation. The world is short one of the good ones. I have a empty place in my heart this week that will soon be filled with her spirit. I send to the family my condolences. She is loved and missed. ~Gary

Bruce, So sorry for your loss. I worked closely with Cindy at Forsythe for 8 or 9 years before leaving last year. I talked to her so much about so many things: dogs, kids, her MS and my daughter's Type1 diabetes and life in general. She was always there for support and a such class person and great friend. Life is not fair to be given what she had to deal with. She is in a better place now and we will all miss her. I know I will. Chuck
