  1. I am so very saddened to hear of Cindy’s passing. Seems like every single childhood memory I have included her, from skating parties, county fairs, our weddings. My heart and prayers just go out to each of you, Brian, Nancy, Dennis, Sandra, during this time of sadness. Cindy was a gifted individual, a dedicated nurse and a brilliant person. She will be missed!

  2. A very bright, beautiful & caring lady taken way too soon. God has bigger plans for you Cindy. You blessed many people during your lifetime & I am blessed to have been one of them. I will miss you dearly. Brian, remember we are here for you.

  3. Dear Brian and family thank you for sharing her with all of us. She is truly amazing and always will be. Please know we are here for you if you need anything. I can see her beautiful smile and wonderful laugh so blessed. RIP my friend love you always. JaDeen

  4. I was fortunate enough to know and work with Cindy. The thing that made her special was her genuine compassion and caring for her patients and everyone. She was a great teacher and was the reason that I chose to go back for my Nurse Practitioner. She always challenged me to do my best and I will cherish the time that I was fortuante enough to know her. I am blessed for having known her and that I can call her my friend. She will be missed..

  5. Brian & family, Our thoughts & prayers are with you. Cindy was a very special person that we are lucky to have shared so many fun times with. We will remember all of the card games played, tubing, hurricanes (both parties & drinks)& halloween parties. It’s not everyone that you can get to know & become such life long friends with by going to New Orleans & meeting at Pat O’Brien’s. Some of the best times of our lives have been spent with you & Cindy & we will always cherish those times. Brian, we love you & Cindy & wish we really did live within card playing distance.

  6. I was also very blessed to get to work with Cindy at St. Joseph as staff nurses, as Dr Briner’s NP and again with BCS Heart NP at College Station Medical Center. She rounded faithfully and completely. Her compassion with patients as well as with nurses in sharing her knowledge amazed me. I always told her that I wanted to grow-up to be like her but I know she was an amazing gift that can’t be matched. May God look upon her family with the same tenderness and kindness she was known for.

  7. I just heard of your passing today on FB. What sad news to hear. You were such a special person Cindy- such an inspiration to others, so kind and caring… I still remember fondly, going to your house for cookouts and football. I can remember shadow sitting on your lap like he was a 10 lb cat… Troubles and Stevie Ray- how you loved your wine after a long day… I loved helping you wrap gifts at Christmas, you never left anyone out. I still remember the cleavage picture hanging in the living room!! Guess what? I have it now too, just like you said I might someday:-) I will never forget you Cindy. I hope Brian in doing OK. I think of him often too. In fact, I even named my son Brian <3 Anyway, I am sending you my love- out into the universe, wherever you may be. I am sure if there is a heaven, you are there smiling down on us all with that incredible laugh.
