David & Jennifer,

I never met you but Cindy talked about you both all the time so it's almost like I did..... I am so sorry to hear of her passing. I worked with Cindy on 3rd shift for years and we always joked about the Lions football team because I was from Detroit. I worked at Border's also but didn't know Cindy there. We found out later that we both worked there at different times. She was a good person with great humor and will be missed dearly.

I will be praying for you and the family in this very tough time.

Take care of yourselves,

Darryl Hale

Cindy was always so kind and generous, especially to our kids. They will miss her too.

Take care of yourself, and know that you are in my prayers.
