Memories Timeline


  1. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you, and as a friend just told me her jouney home is almost done.

  2. You will be dearly missed our friend, never really cared for the term goodbye, sounds too final, so I must say "see you later". Your kindness and spirit touched countless lives, you my friend were truly a candle in the wind who's light has and will shine always.

  3. Royce, you're in my thoughts and prayers at this time. Cindy had a heart of gold and I appreciate all she did to make Linden a better place to live. God Bless you and your family.

  4. Cindy was one of the first people I met when I moved to Linden 7 years ago. We went and had breakfast at her place every morning and she just accepted me in like I had lived here for years. She was such a character! Her imitation of the wicked witch from The Wizard of Oz was the BEST! And for those of you that got to see it, you know what I am talking about. She will be missed by so many. Royce, you are in our thoughts and prayers.

  5. Royce, we were both so saddened to hear of your loss-we never got to meet Cindy,but we will always remember you and your family in our heart felt prayers. Jerry and Patsy DreesenJefferson, Texas

  6. A friend of hers from KSU. Loved her smile and her sense of humor. Had not seen her for years but still mourn as I see this.

  7. Just heard of oldsfan's passing, my thoughts and prayers go out to her family. She will surely be missed

  8. What a sweet lady my heart goes out to her family and friends, will remember her and family in my prayers. I knew her on line in a trivia room. She will be missed.

  9. I had complimented her on her philosophy of life – "Duck" which appeared on her talkcity profile, and we chatted a bit. It is indeed quite a sad news that someone you chatted to is no more. God bless her.
