My mom used to work with Cindy and I remember going to the County Building when I visited my mom at work to say hello to Cindy. She was always smiling and laughing and happy. I offer my condolences to her family and especially her two daughters.

I just heard the news and I am SO saddened. I have nothing but good memories of Cindy in the short time I've known her. Whenever I saw her, she was smiling and cheerful. Only Cindy would be able to make a pasta salad for our T-Ball picnic this year and have the pasta be in the shape of bats, gloves, and baseballs! Our daughters are the same age and we were getting to know each other much better. Unfortunately, I did not know until after 7:00 tonight, otherwise I would have definitely been there. God Bless all of you, especially her beautiful daughters. You are all in my prayers!

Growing up with Cindy from when we were little girls on Dudley Ave, she always saw the best in me. Me, Cindy and Michelle the 3 musketeers. Even to this day she was there for me when life threw me several curves. She left an imprint on my heart from way back that never faded. Even if we hadnt seen each other in a long time when we did it was like no time had passed at all. I will truly miss talking to her, she had such a wonderful way of making me smile. Harry, Betty and family may you find peace in knowing that although we wish she were still with us she is with God now and will be looking over all of us. May God Bless you Cindy and watch over your beautiful girls...You will be truly missed...Love Andrea

What a difficult world we live in when we have to say goodbye to one of our children . our sister and mother . Cindy was all of those things and more . Growing up around the Turner Family I know this will be one of if not the most hardest moments for your family to accept . May your memories of Cindy never wane and your hearts grow lighter as time passes . With love and sympathy.......Anthony Amodio

How in the world someone so wonderful can be taken so soon. Her smile could light up a room, and her friendly and compassionate demeaner, can make even the bluest of persons, light up their mood and lift their heart, all with a simple smile from Cindy. God bless you and your family, and your children who my heart aches for the most. Your Rainbow Sisters will never forget you, and you will continue to hold a special place in our hearts...until we meet again.

To the Turner Family I wish to extend my sincere condolences. I also went through grammer and high school with Cindy and I can truly remember what a great girl she was and we had many laughs. I am so happy we got to meet up again through facebook, just sorry we couldn't get to see one another. My thoughts are with you and those little girls. RIP CINDY !!

I am very sorry for your loss. I went to high school with Cindy and had the pleasure of preparing her taxes for several years. She was a very bright and cheerful person and always very kind. I will miss her and i will pray for her children!

To the Turner family...I am so sorry for your loss. I do not have to tell you what a good person Cindy was. I knew Cindy since kindergarten and went through college with her. She was a great friend and we shared many times together growing up. I thank God that we recently got in touch again and had the opportunity to see each other again. I cannot believe that she was just at my house and now she is gone. She will be deeply missed by everyone. May God watch over all of you. You have each other and Cindy is watching from above. God Bless you all, stay strong. Love Michele LaPaglia
