The first time I meet Cyndi was when she was in the Buccaneers. I had 3 sisters also in the Buccaneers. The second time was when her and I worked at Meadow View Manor. She was a great nurse and fun to work with. The most recent time we connected was about 1 year ago when we reconnected on Facebook. I enjoyed all her pictures that she shared on Facebook. About a month ago I was able to share old movies my mother took of the Buccaneers. She really enjoyed them. May God comfort your time of need. Sending prayers.
