    Sue, David and families,

    I am so sorry to hear of Cindy’s passing. I first met Cindy in an adult evening education class at PCTC in the 80’s. She appeared to be a very independent person. She was a very kind and caring person who always was willing to help any way she could. She was definitely a very true true friend and will be greatly missed. I will always treasure the memories of our friendship.

    My prayers are with all of you.

    Susan Livingston
