I am so sorry to hear Cyndi has passed, she meant so much to me. Her friendship has been one that I have treasured, I could not have had a better friend. When I moved to Montana, I had like a lot of people, left most of my family, and if it hadn't been for my Montana mom, I would not have the great memories. Cyndi always made me laugh, she wasn't afraid to tell it like it was, but she did everything with a loving heart. My only regret is that I could not be there for her, when she was in need, but she was always in my heart, and I hold a lot of great memories quilting, and just sitting and talking with her. You were all blessed to have such a wonder full mother, and grandmother. She will be greatly missed by many. May God give you all strength and his awesome peace.
