Joanie and Family Whenever our paths would cross when I was still in Pennsylvania, Cindy was always warm and kind to me and my boys. She did have an infectious smile and was always able to give me a good chuckle. I have always enjoyed your posts on FB documenting your various appointments, visits and outings with Cindy. It is a wonderful and lovely tribute. Joanie you are truly a strong, caring and loving woman. I am humbled. May you find peace and comfort in the days ahead. God Bless.

Sorry for your loss. I was one of Cynthia's WCT Para Transit drivers. It was a pleasure to know and talk to Cynthia on her frequent trips aboard the transit bus. She was always upbeat and pleasant. I know she will be missed. The good Lord always reclaims his own. So i know she is resting peacefully now. God Bless you all.
