  1. Charlie, We are saddened at the loss of Cindy as she was certainly a friend and servant to her neighborhood, wherever she may be. Praying you are comforted by our Lord knowing she is in a far better place and in perfect health awaiting all of us.

  2. I cannot express my sadness at hearing of Cindy’s passing. My heart is broken as I know are Charlie’s and several others. We were so incredibly blessed to have Cindy and Charlie as such close friends that we are all like family. What an honor. She was such an amazing woman who never met a stanger or person she wouldn’t help or befriend. It is no wonder she is so incredibly loved by all. The world lost a beautiful light and it will never be the same. We love you Charlie and are here for you.

  3. Charlie, I am so sorry to hear of Cindy’s passing. Our family has been truly blessed to have her as a friend. Not only a friend, but considered like family. She will be missed. Thoughts, prayers and our love to you.

  4. Cindy was one of a kind – always smiling, thoughtful, caring and so much fun to be around. Larry and I are so saddened that the world has lost her spark. Our prayer for Charlie is that he will feel God’s love and peace.

  5. I was so very sad to hear about our beloved Mrs.Still.
    On my behalf and of my fellow students from Bowie Elementary, our most heartfelt condolences to Mr. Still and his son.
    I know she is smiling down at us from heaven with that unique smile of hers.
    I’ve been talking with several others today that had the privilege of having her as our teacher.
    We all share a beautiful memory where we all met at her beloved Bowie Elementary.
    It was a perfect day, Friday in September of 2021. Mrs. Still thought she was meeting only me for a tour of the remodeled
    school and then we were going to lunch. I had been able to arrange the tour because my grandson was then employed by Gessner Engineering that now occupies the building.
    She was so excited, but to her surprise I had arranged twelve other former students to accompany us!
    I can still see her happy face talking with all of us, enjoying every moment of the tour.
    We took many pictures. We then all took her to lunch at Longhorn Tavern downtown.
    What a beautiful and blessed day that was!
    Praise God we had that beautiful memory with you Mrs. Still. May you rest in peace. You’ll be in our hearts forever.

  6. Lucinda, my sister Laurinda, and I played together as children.
    We had lots of fun in those days. Our sympathies and prayers
    are for comfort and peace for the family and friends as they
    deal with this loss.

  7. Dear Charles, we are heartsick about the loss of your beloved spouse, our sister-in-law and aunt. We wish like anything we could be with you this Tuesday to celebrate her life and mourn her passing. She had a zest for living. As the French would say, joie de vivre. Her enthusiasm was contagious, and she had a knack for making everyone feel special. No doubt, she will carry this forward in the next part of her journey. Cindy will be missed by all of us. Because we all have a love of music, we made a donation to the Brazos Symphony in her honor from Nelda, Norma, Darryl, and Martha. All our love to you Charles!

  8. Charlie, I was so sad to hear of Cindy’s passing. I will always remember her smile and how she always seemed happy. She always made my day when she came into our office. I was blessed to get to know her on a personal level. I enjoyed the lunches with her and Kathy. She even came to visit when I moved to Conroe. I still have souvenirs she brought me over the years from her travels. Please know I am thinking and praying for you and your family today.

  9. We were so very saddened to hear of the loss of Cindy. She was a big part of my life on Quail Hollow (as were you all). The world is a little less friendly and happy without her in it. I wish you peace and comfort during this time by knowing how highly people thought of her.

  10. Cindy and I became friends at a very young age, about three and four years old. I was the older. As our homes were separated by a vacant lot and one house, we ran back and forth. Her back yard was perfect for playingTarzan, Cowboy and bullfighter. Her house was our “Tora.” Mr. and Mrs. Dyer were very kind. After I moved across town, they would pick me up to join in more adventures at Cherokee Lake. We swam off the pier, tramped in the woods and ate many Vienna Sausages. It pleases me greatly to know Cindy’s life was full of friends and many fine adventures.
    Love to Charlie and Mark, Laurinda Hancock Alpenfels
