    Sometimes we meet people in our lives that truly leave a piece of themselves with you. Cindy and I worked together at IU Health Arnett. Her warm smile was a true expression of her kindness toward others. To her daughter and family, I am deeply sorry for your loss. May your memories carry you forward through this most difficult time.

    With warm thoughts,

    Julie and Family,

    Sending you my deepest sympathy. I had the pleasure to work with Cindi for many years at Arnett and she was always a joy to work with. I learned so much from her during that time. She was a very special person.

    I am so sorry for your loss.

    I worked with Cindy at Arnett Clinic for all of those 40 years. Cindy always lit up spirits with her warm smile and greeting. She was always willing to help all those around her without complaint and if unable to help was always giving guidance in her kind and unassuming way. Cindy had a large family of health care providers that were enabled by her and with which she leaves a legacy of kindness, hard work and dedication to a larger mission. She will be greatly missed and remembered.
