Jack and family, I am so sorry to read of the passing of Cindy. My deepest sympathies extended to you. I am Sharon Miller, have known you since you were a young boy, your mom/dad/brothe Max, sister Marva Lu and best friend's w/your sister Barbara. I was with her in Buchanan and the nursing home when she passed, and visited your sister Marva after that I just want you to know I am deeply sorry for your loss. I would be there but due to my health issues an unable to. God Bless you and yours and may Cindy rest in eternal peace in God's loving arms.

I am so very sorry to hear of Cindy's passing. Cindy and I shared so much together and had so much fun when we were kids. I was so glad to see her and Nancy at the Nuner Reunion a couple years ago. I am very sorry I couldn't make it to the funeral but please know you are all in my thoughts and prayers. May Cindy RIP and fly high with the angles.
