Oh I am so sorry to learn of this. Cindy was still too young. My memory of her was seeing her coming in to work the 11-7 shift in her crispe white uniform, hauling some personal entertainments for when the time was slow during the night and her having such a beautiful head of hair. Condolences to her family. Grief and grieving is a long and rocky road. Be kind and gentle with yourselves as you navigate this loss.

PattI, I always was jealous of her hair, she had a beautiful name of thick curls and I had thin, straight, stringy hair. She always said she got the great hair and i got the great eyelashes. But…. She had great eyelashes too.i am going to miss her so much.

Prayers for your family. I knew Cindy from school. When my mom passed in 1989, Cindy was working at Pipp and was there supporting me in the 4 days my mom was there. I will never forget her love and dedication to both her patients and their families. She will be missed.
