Cindy was a woman that loved the Lord Jesus Christ and her heart and hospitality shown to everyone around her. Her joy in life was being a giver, she loved more to give than to ever receive and her inclusiveness and compassion always came shining through. As a result of her generous spirit and beautiful personality, she was loved by so many and her influence will remain in the lives of all who knew her. She was the embodiment of John 13:34-35.
