To all of Cindy's compassionate friends, near and far, I would like to thank you in advance for any prayers and donations for my sister, Cindy, to help her through this most challenging time.

As most of you know, Cindy unexpectedly lost her companion of 25+ years, Ted Brown, to his 40 year battle with depression in early June. Cindy was sitting in the next room over when he took his life. These last three months have by far been the most trying time of Cindy's life!

The urgency of my request is because Cindy and Ted lived in their home together for the last 27 years, combining funds to make their home something they were both quite proud of.  It is at this point the tragic set of circumstances start to pile up.

Documentation that showed Cindy as an equitable owner in the property she had equally shared expenses in for 27 years was never filed . Cindy's heartbreak continued as she found out Ted had  not left a will expressing his wishes that Cindy inherit all they had built together. This included a rare set of 5000 Harley collectables, vehicles, motorcycles, and keepsakes within the home which were so painstakingly added over the decades of living together.

This series of events has blindsided Cindy with not only the loss of her lifelong partner, but the tragic loss of her beloved home which she had always counted on for her long term security.  Even through the efforts of the legal heirs to do the right thing, Cindy finds herself out of her home by the end of September, with no long term job and extremely limited funds to continue to live on.

The most amazing thing about Cindy, is she has found a way to persevere and keep moving forward, even as she is forced to watch trucks pull up to her house and load up belongings from a life time of memories.


Big or small, every dollar goes to Cindy to get her funds to live on while she is attempting to rent and furnish her new home.

Cindy's unwavering belief in her fellow man and her trust in God has allowed her to stay the course at a time when she is still attempting to grief Ted.  Cindy told me God would not give her more then she could handle but it's my heartfelt belief that God is calling on each and everyone of us to help remove the financial obstacles that seem insurmountable to Cindy. 

In closing, thanks again for helping my wonderful sister who as always put others needs before her own.  Its my hope that we can reward Cindy for the unselfish way she has lived her life, and get her settled in a new home that she so richly deserves!

It would be greatly appreciated if everyone could repost Cindy's gofundme page. to get the word out.
