Our Loss...Heaven's Gain!  / Dr. Paul Gervais (Friend)
Cindy was a living example of Christ. In all of my life, I have never been so blessed and touched by such a compassionate person.

Few have ever touched my heart, as she. I am greatly diminished by her passing.

Heaven is so much richer and more attractive because of this true hero and lady.

I love her.

Five years . . . wow. I'm comforted to know that to Cindy she probably feels like she's only been there for five minutes. What it she seeing? Who is she hanging out with? I know that she is in the embrace of the One who loves her best -- who always has. Still I miss her. Mei peace be with Bud Jackie and Kim as they remember their sweet Cindy. Close

Thinking of you  / John (friend)
Hi Cindy,
Its 2009 and I am still thinking of you. Its so nice that this website is here as a memory. My thanks to those who keep it going. It still touches my heart as you touched my heart when we knew each other.
I remember when we met on the internet several years ago now. I was so far in the UK but we had such great conversations and fun and laughs on aol and sometimes on the telephone. You are one of the few people that I have had a deep connection with. Thank you. With alot of love and smiles. I cant help smiling when I think of you.
Peace

Just a note because I miss you.  / AJ

It's been a long time since I've been here to see your site.  Partly because I can't look at it without crying at some point, and partly because I tend to push away or ignore things that hurt.  It amazes me that it has been 4 years already when it seems like it was just yesterday that we would be up chatting the night away.  Sponsoring this site is by far one of the best things I've ever done, as it is so wonderful seeing everyone here come together through the endless love and admiration we all have for you. You managed to spread your light into all corners of the continent, touching people that were practically babies when they met you (like I was:) along with those who carried the grace and wisdom that comes with age.

I think God took you back because He was truly missing His most treasured Angel.   And as you so sweetly once told me, I will say to you:  Cindy, there is no one who can hold a candle to you.  Not even now.

All my love to you always (Yesss, I know you are too busy rocking out with our Lead Sister to read these posts :-)

Its been almost 5 years and still we remember you.  / Lizzy Cayer (friend)
Its been nearly 5 years and this morning I awake to find you on my mind.  You were so far away and yet we shared a bondage of which we are both now free, I just wish yours had ended differently.  Time passes and I find more and more people that were affected and inspired by you in their lives.  I hear one man who I know misses you beyond repair.  God has you, and you are safe.  Rest your eyes my friend, now you are free.

If I could say the words that you could hear, if I could have one wish from God above, it would have been to share in a peace here on earth with you.  God has plans that are much greater, yet a bit harder to understand.  I wish you were still a phone call away and that I could have been an inspiration, an ear, or a charity to pull you through.  Cindy you fought so hard and lost for reasons...well....beyond my understanding completely.  You are at peace, and that is what we must remind ourselves every day.  Your battle with this ugly disease has ceased.  I cant wait to see you in heaven, I know youll be waiting next to God with that big beautiful smile and open arms!!!  Thank you God, for bringing her peace.

Heaven's Special Resident...  / Dr. Paul Gervais (Friend)

It takes a minute to find someone special, an hour to appreciate that person, a day to love Heaven's gift, and an entire lifetime to miss them. Christmas was always special to Cindy. Cindy was  special to Christmas. "And their works do follow them..." You did your job well. Hearts are richer because of the Lord's Special Handmaiden. Love...Paul

Such a special person.  / LIZ CAYER (FRIEND/CONTACT)
Some of the most brave people in the world are those that go unnoticed.  To suffer in silence as she smiled was a weight one can bear for only so long.  She is an inspiration for anyone who has something to conquer, because I believe she gave it her all.  God was ready to take her and will use all of her wonderful abilities.
Be blessed in heaven, Cindy.

And Their Works Do Follow Them....  / Dr. Paul Gervais (Friend)

I am fully convinced that time is compressing and imploding. With the world moving at an unprecedented pace, the unseen remains poised to swallow up the seen. Toward that end, Heaven and earth are embracing.

Within that Special Realm lies a Great Cloud of Witnesses, among whom is one incredible girl...Cindy Ward. She has always been the apple of God's eye. Now, He Personally embraces a precious lady who was only on loan to us for a season, as we are to each other.

In my life, Cindy was a constant. Her words were invariably flavored with the very essence and nature of the One Who meticulously envisioned and formed this handmaiden in that other unseen place...His Heart. The world's loss, considered major in the eyes of those she touched and blessed, remains the Throne Room's gain. I can sincerely say that she is among this man's treasures in Heaven.

Her anointing, not unlike the finest of earthly fragrances and God's awesome bigness, supernaturally drew "real" people...the hurting and wounded, in particular. The Lord and Cindy always had more Medicine than our pain. I can personally attest to that. Nothing but the Word was dispensed in a myriad of ways.

Our tears are stored in bottles, and in some cases, barrels. They are precious to our Father. Each is connected to a thought and conjoint emotion. Cindy has seen those shed on her behalf. What a marvelous testimony and reminder to her of how very important she was, and is, to Him and us.  And their works do follow them.

Cindy, thank you, thank you, thank you, for being Jesus' Conduit in my life! I can light a candle, but mine could never possibly shine as brilliantly as yours!

An Irreplaceable Friend  / Jena Morrow (Dear friend )
May 15, 2005 Cindy was a dear friend to me, and a sister in many ways, as we shared similar struggles and also similar interests, such as our mutual enthusiasm for Carpenters music. I first met Cindy at the end of 1996, and then continued to enjoy a wonderful friendship with her via email, telephone calls, and finally a very memorable extended visit in 1997, when she came to stay in my home. I will never forget picking her up at O'Hare, and finding her giddy with irrepressable excitement and loaded down with luggage and gift bags galore. Elaborate care packages arrived often from Texas, bursting at the seams with trinkets and goodies and Carpenters audio and video tapes, all painstakingly dubbed and packaged by my precious "Sis Cindy" (or Cinderella, Cindstress, Cinders, etc!). In 1998 I received a check from Cindy, with strict orders enclosed: "Buy yourself that drumset you want - you deserve it!" I did not deserve it, nor did I deserve the completely selfless and nurturing love and friendship that Cindy extended to me. When it came to being a friend, Cindy went above the call of duty at every opportunity. She was irreplaceable as a friend, and as a human being. I had the honor of praying with Cindy in my basement one night in 1997, to re-dedicate her life to God. And when I am able to put my selfish sadness aside, I can exhale for Cindy, knowing that she is in the embrace of the One who loves her most completely. And I can summon the joy to smile... because I know that we will meet again, where goodbyes do not exist. I miss you, Cindy. I LOVE YOU. ~ "Sis Jena-Jo" Jena Morrow Close

I came to know Cindy back in the mid 90's, via our mututal passion for the music of the Carpenters. Cindy and I never met one another in person, but enjoyed frequent conversations on the phone, discussing life and our respective personal journeys and life experiences. We'd lost touch over the last few years, and it wasn't until April that I received the heartbreaking news of her untimely passing. I cannot even begin to express the sorrow I feel in my heart. This is a terrible loss, to her family and to those who loved and knew her. Cindy was a special young woman, with so much love in her heart, and so much life left to live. To her family and loved ones, I am numb with pain and sadness at her passing, and for your loss. I will keep you all, [especially Kim, who Cindy always spoke so highly of, and who I know she loved so very much] in my prayers. Sis Cindy, my precious friend - we will meet one day and pick up where we last left off. Until then, may you rest in peace. Forever and ever, amen. With love, Dana Close

Oh, how I wish I would have been better at staying in contact.  It doesn't seem it was all that long ago that we were at Homer Daddy and Granny's  house playing house.  You never complained all the times I used to brush your hair and play mommy with you.   I miss those days.  God bless you and I love you and miss you!
