    My heart goes out to your family. I had the pleasure of getting to know Cindy and the family when Dave AKA “Trouble” came into our lives excited about semi-pro football and got my boys involved. Hanging out with Cindy on the sidelines was always one of the fun parts of being a “Football Mom”. Many treats and stories were shared and I realize now those were some of the best times of my life. May your memories and Cindy’s beautiful smile keep you strong in these coming weeks. My love to you all.

    Dear Mom,

    I cannot express how much we love and miss you. You have been nothing less than inspirational and a warrior over coming many different cancers since 1992 and surviving septic shock in 2000 where people have less than a 3% of survival. When you were diagnosed last yr with stage 3 lung cancer we all knew it would be an uphill battle but you never showed weakness. You never have backed down from adversity or a challenge in life. Although we grew up in a lot of adversity I would have never changed it at all. It has molded us kids into strong individuals that never back down from challenges, to always fight and to never give up, and to always appreciate and live life to the fullest. You also have taught us to never let anyone walk over us and to stand up for you family no matter what the costs are. Your grandkids will be fine and I am so glad you got to see the ultrasound of your future grandchild arriving in August. We love you so much and miss you. Untill we meet again. Love Dave
