  1. I’m going to miss Cindy terribly, and my heart goes out to you, Lester. We think of Cindy every day – the baby doll she gave my daughter is one of her favorites. She calls her “bee-bye.” I’ll miss visiting her when I come home, and miss laughing with her about the ‘good old days’ when she watched my sisters and I grow up. We loved Cindy very much, and will always remember her. Lester, you are in our thoughts and prayers. Love, Lori, Rob and Katie


  3. Our Deepest sympathy to all of you…our thoughts and prayers are with all of you during this difficult time. Please know that we love you all very much. Love Joe, Maria, Christina and Joey DiBartolomeo

  4. We are very sad to read of your loss Lester. Our prayers and thoughts are with you. Thumper told me yesterday about the situation. I know what you went through, I did it with both my parents. Hope I see you some time soon. Again our prayers are with you.

  5. Lester & Family, Please accept my deepest sympathies on the loss of your wife. I had heard Cindy had been doing pretty well lately, therefore I was shocked to read she had passed away. You guys seemed very happy together and I hope you can hold on to the good memories. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Jim Brandolino

  6. I will forever remember the love and generosity that Cindy so freely gave. You will be forever missed. Love, Mary (Riggs) Smith
