Memorial fund for Cindy Johnson

Every loss is hard. I think the completely unexpected are even more difficult.

Cindy out of the blue had a brain aneurysm and blood blockage in her neck that stopped blood flow to the brain. She became unconscious and only responded to reflex tests. One of the last tests was to see if she could breath on here own. She didn't. Her response to reflex tests were decreasing leading to being brain dead. Friends and family prayed many times for her to wake up, but she never did. Just that quick a brain aneurysm took such a precious life. We lost Cindy Johnson on Saturday, December 9th.

I read a post that said “When I met her she gave me Huge hug and treated me like we had been friends for 100 years already“. Cindy had that kind of presents. She was an open , fun , inspiration and will be missed.

Cindy wished for her passing, although too soon, to be a celebration of her life and viewed as a passage from this life to the next. A celebration of her life is still in the planning stages.

This experience has been overwhelming and very difficult for family and friends; especially her daughter Charlotte. There were no plans or insurance backing the sudden death of her mother . In addition, to the emotional aspects there is the obvious finical strain. Charlotte appreciates all the condolences and support she has received thus far. Many people have asked if there is anything they can do to help so I have established this page for monetary donations. Any amount can help with the final costs and all that we know goes along with such a huge life change.
