Was shocked to read of Cindy's passing. She was one of a handful do amazing women to welcome me to the world of EDS. She was always there to talk and we became cyber friends, not just people who shared an illness. She was always talking about her family and her grandchildren and could tell she loved them so very much. Love to her family and sending the knowledge that she helped so many people throughout her life and will be greatly missed.
Dear Rod and family. I am still in shock. I decided to look Cindy up on Facebook because I am flying toRockford this comingMonday . I live in Florida now. I hadn't spoken with Cindy in a few years. She was my maid of honor 44 years ago. We first met each other while working atOsco Drug backin 1968. We became best friends. Then she met Rod. Fell in love, got married and watched Rod go overseas. I was engaged and she was married,so became a great team and stayed out of trouble. We drove around in Rod's hot car. She was a great friend although it had been many years since we've been together. I loved her and will miss her very much. Marianne Johnson-Dahl-Bartole. Give my love to her mom Donna.
My thoughts and prayers are with Cindy's family at this difficult time. I have such warm memories of Cindy as her kindness and support meant such a lot to me especially as she was going through so much herself. She was a very special person who will never be forgotten. God bless Cindy x
I am so sorry to have learned of Cindy\'s passing. I met Cindy in Rockford a few years back as we were both active in an online support group for our illness. Cindy helped me send cards to others experiencing difficulty in their daily struggles. She always had a kind word & helped cheer others up. I only met Rod but I send my most sincere condolences to all of the family. This world lost a caring, beautiful soul. RIP. Susan (Dale) Ross
I'm very sorry to hear of Cindy ' s passing. I send my deepest sympathy to all Cindy
Family. I am a member of her Relapsing polychondritis group. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. May God grant you the peace and comfort you need to get through this.
I'm so sorry for your loss. Cindy has been a wonderful support for my mother, and nothing can repay her kindness to our family. Renee Wittman
Rod, Cindy and I have been close friends over the years with many shared phone calls and emails. She has been on my mind a lot lately and in my prayers. If I can do anything please let me know. You and your family are in my prayers. Kristine Hanson
I just heard about the loss of Cindy. I'm so sad to know she has moved on. She was such a wonderful, kind lady.
I am so saddened to learn of Cindy's passing. It's been years but I do recall the fun times and do have great memories. You and your family will be in my prayers.
Rod, I was so sorry to hear that Cindy had passed away. Grace and peace to you and your family in the weeks and months to come.
Donna called me Sunday to tell me Cindy had died. That was the last thing I expected to hear. Am so very sorry. Our deepest sympathies to you Rod, and your kids and grandkids, as well as to Donna Lee and Carla. Last time I saw Cindy was at Tom's memorial 5 years ago. Cindy and I talked just a short time. Our hearts go out to you all.
Cindy was there for me at a difficult time in my life. I always welcomed her advise and she truly listened. Cindy could not say enough wonderful things about you, Rod, her kids and grandkids. She always made time to listen. We knew each other through Faith Lutheran in Janesville, WI. She was the Secretary for the Woman's ELCA Board. Excellent one at that! All the ladies benefited from her kind and caring ways. I had lost touch with her when I moved, But do remember also a nice evening out with Cindy and Rod at a restaurant near your place in Janesville. You were fun to be with! I know Cindy is not suffering any longer and is with our Lord Jesus Christ. May the memories of Cindy bring you comfort as each day passes. Blessings, Susan & Jim Cole
John, Brook and Family: my deepest sympathy in the loss of your mother. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this time of mourning.
Rod, it was a shock to hear that Cindy fell asleep in death. We go back many years to our grade school days. I remember when I first moved back to Wisconsin and looked you up, Cindy greeted me like old friends even though we had only met once before. When babies are born or people get married, we always have words to say. When we loose someone, we are at a loss for words. Death seems so unnatural. It's good to remember Jesus' words at John 5:28,29 where he said we will be able to welcome back those in the memorial tombs. We just need to be there to welcome them. Take care, my good friend, Lyle and Sue Wermund
My sincerely condolences to Rod and family. I've only know Cindy as an online friend from many years ago. She will be missed by many in the EDS community. RIP Cindy
Cindy was special..such a beautiful person..inside and out. I always will remember her friendship and support while she was on our rheum arth group. She was the best....always concerned for ohers. Her stories about Ms Skoots kept us laughing. I will miss her so much.... with prayers and condolences to her dear family..whom she spoke about with so much love. She sure loved her husband, family and those little ones!!!
