She was family to her neighbors and constantly took what time she had to love on those around her. Cindy loved to host parties during football season to watch her beloved Tennessee Titans, grill to order over the summer for her family, and read to her grandbabies before bed. Cindy Lou, Mom, Mimi, Titi, Sister, Daughter – we love you and you will be missed.
