Cindy was a unique person.  I enjoyed the many, many times sitting in her bus with the other drivers as we waited for school to be dismissed.. I remember her devotion to her family and her animals being her driving force..  So sorry to hear of her passing but I know she has passed to a wonderful and loving God.  Cynthia was indeed true to herself.
