    • CandleImageCindy was the strongest person I have ever met. She was my step mother but so much more as well. She never hesitated to speak her mind, and in the early days she spoke it to me fairly often. And rightfully so. We went from butting heads regularly to being each others cheerleaders in tough times. She may have been my step mom, but she never treated me as a step child. She never hesitated to lend a hand. I hope she knew how much she meant to me. I love you Cindy…. You will be missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing you….

  10. Cindy was the strongest person I have known. She fought a long battle and never gave up. Having her at my house less than two weeks before she died was such a blessing. She got the strength to come home to the Black Hills one more time. Lots of memories growing up together and through the years that nobody can take them away. My mom always told her you have to go home so you can come back. She went home and is coming back to be in her final resting place the Beautiful Black Hills. Rest in Peace my sister Cindy I Love you and will miss you. Your sister Becky

    I want to express my deepest sympathy to you and your family. I know it’s extremely difficult to go through this. I know exactly how you are feeling to lose a Mother, but God does make the difference. God is the only one who can fill the void! Praying for God’s love to surround you and your family and God continue to provide strength and increase your Faith in him. Earth has no sorrow that Heaven cannot heal! The joy in it all is the cherished memories you have in your heart that you can recall daily and you will see Mom again! Sincerely, Love You! Sandra Gipson

  13. CandleImageOur thoughts and prayers are with Ray, Cindy’s family and friends during this time of sorrow. She will be missed by all that knew her because she was such a joy to be around. She always had that contagious smile and such a positive attitude, no matter how bad she might have felt. What an amazing woman! May you Rest in Peace Sweet Lady!

  14. Cindy was my first real friend, we met in 1st grade and were friends till she got her angel wings…so blessed to have one last good bye when she came home to the hills shortly before she ended her battle. When my dad was in a terrible accident and my mom had to go to another state to be with him…Jo and Don, Cindy’s folks took me in to live with them for a couple of months…what a blessing to live with my BFF at that time. She was my maid of honor at my wedding. After high school we went our separate ways but whenever she came home we always got together and the time melted away and we picked up from the last time we saw each other.
    I am missing her greatly she was my Best Friend Always…
