Cindy was an amazing person inside and out. She was always smiling and always knew how to make others smile. My daughter loves seeing her every morning and most afternoons. She always told me how happy and blessed she was to have my daughter on her route. Truth be told is that my daughter and I were the ones who was blessed and happy having her as her bus driver.

Farmer Family-
You know how much Cindy meant to me and my family, especially my Mom. She always made me laugh, smile, and never passed up an opportunity to give a hug and tell me how proud of me she was. It hurts knowing her thoughtful, beautiful smile will no longer be in our presence, but I have comfort knowing she is with God. I also have comfort in knowing that my Mom is not alone in Heaven; she has her lifelong friend with her. Love you all!

From Linda Butler...

I met Cindy through my grandchildren. taking them and picking them up at the bus stop when their parents weren’t able to. She always treated me so nice. kidded around with me and making me laugh. I remember how my grandchildren loved her. How she commented on the computer to me. I saw today that I had a request to play a game. It kind of threw me to see that. but I couldn’t delete it. I will miss those little teasing comments she used to make. <3 you, Cindy! You will be missed by so many!
