    Cindy was special and loved by all of us for her humor, her love of rock and roll and for contributing to all. She always opened her heart, her parents home, her sister Dixie and Bobs home. To us 12 mischievous “wild indians “wearing Daniel Boone racoon hats, then Micky Mouse. Music and dance and fun surrounded Cindy with her grandma , a piano player. Cindy was an example in courage as she walked through her later years. The last time I saw her last fall at the class renion she just pointed and laughed with glee at some of our high school antics. God bless Cindy and her family. Jeanne Tooti Toohill Flaherty
