Memories Timeline


  1. Ciddie, I keep remembering our trip to New York. Thought we were really something staying at the Plaza! Our room had a beautiful view of Manhatran, but to get to our overhead bay window, we had to climb on a chair, onto the dresser, and up into the window. Didn't stop us though. We made the climb each night and sat huddled together in that tiny window, admiring the view. Our maid thought we were gay, and we loved it! We'd call each other honey in front of her and giggle behind her back! Oh Ciddie, you were such a joy. I love you always, Peddie

  2. Cindy I worked together for several years. I reflect on all the good times laughs we shared…and there were many, especially our inside jokes. It makes my heart so sad to know of this sudden loss. My thoughts prayers go out to all of her family. May she rest in peace her soul be free of all that burdened her. Love you Cindy

  3. cont. you are loved. I know you are at peace now with God. You were a beautiful person on earth and now you are a beautiful angel in heaven. Good-bye friend. I love you Cindy! Love Ton-Ton.

  4. I just found out about Cindy's passing. My heart goes out to her family. I went to school with Cindy in junior high at F.K. White and graduated with her at LaGrange. She was such a sweet person and will be truly missed.

  5. May your worries be light, and your hearts be strong. I will NEVER forget Cindy's smile, and her laughter. Cindy left many memories made along the way and I am so happy to have been a part of some of them. She will truly be missed by many! I will keep you all in my prayers and heart. I'm just a phone call away. On Angels wings, set her free.

  6. My heart goes out to the Deshotel's for their loss. I met Cindy in 1994 at work. We became and remained friends. We laughed together and even completed each other's sentences. She was a great friend. Cindy had a smile that could light up a room. Cindy had charisma that attracted people to her. Cindy could make others laugh easily. I just wish she could have seen how she touched others lives on earth and how blessed they are for knowing her. I have a lot of happy memories of Cindy and I will cherish them till I pass and see her again. Cindy, It will be hard not to text you when I go LC. I'm finding solace in knowing you're with God looking down on us seeing how much y

  7. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you as you go through this difficult time. Cindy was loved by all who knew her, and she will be missed.

  8. Pauline, just found out about your sister and sorry to hear she passed away. May you have many happy memories to pass down to your kids and grandkids.Brenda T. Petry

  9. The glow of light and peace on her face I will always remember. God bless and keep you mom. You are such a beautiful mother. She loved all the help and care you gave her. I remember her saying, oh yes, I can count on my mom Those are the words I pray you hold on too. You are a wonderful, caring, loving, thoughtful, treasured mother.

  10. We shall remember you in our prayers Cindy. Your life was so short. May you rest in peace. (and to the rest of your family)–We are so sorry for your lose.
