    To Cindy's family, I was saddened to hear of Cindy's passing. I was a nursing classmate from years ago and was very pleased to see and talk with her at our 50th class reunion last September. I will carry a smile in my heart when I think of her. Blessings to all her family!

  2. Karen Wolfrom

    My deepest sympathies to Cindy's family. If ever there were a more kind and caring soul, I sure haven't met them. Cindy and I worked together from 2007 to 2012 in Hospice. Now you can be assured she is in the presence of her Lord and Saviour, and that should bring you great peace. Go rest high on that mountain Cindy, until we see each other again! You are loved!

    It was a blessing to grow up across the street from Mrs. Hamilton and her family whom she adored so much. She was like the room mother of the block and just loved all of us kids and really everyone she met (even when we didn't earn it). My memory of her is a person who authentically lived out and professed her belief in Jesus Christ. May God reward her for her faithfulness and rest her gentle soul in peace. My consolensces to her family. I know she will be missed.

    She was a wonderful and kind woman who loved her family and her Lord. She helped me cope with loneliness when my hubby was deployed. She also gave me a beautiful example of hospitality that serves the Lord's agenda. She helped me grow in my walk with Christ. May her life be celebrated and her homecoming glorious for all eternity.
