    I was so saddened to learn of Cindy’ passing only yesterday. My deepest sympathy to all of you. so many great memories of you all and I just want to say what a wonderful family you all are and I am so blessed to have had you in my life. Although it has been many years I just want to say what fond memories I have of Cindy. Mary and I were always trying to hang on her coat tails on the farm and she would just laugh! I know she will be so sorely missed by you all. She was a lovely person and I know she is with her mom and dad now who she loved so dearly. I will always remember her delightful laugh and that beautiful smile. I pray she rests in peace and smiles down upon us . I am so very sad for all of you. I love you all so dearly.

    Love Andrea Novak Doyle

    The loss of a loved one is a very sad and heavy load to bear. May you find comfort at Acts 24:15 “And I have hope toward God, which hope these men also look forward to, that there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous.” Please accept my deepest sympathy.
