    Bob and Sami,
    On behalf of the Curry family, we are very sorry for your loss.

  2. Audrey and Hal Ripper

    I’m sorry for your loss. Cindy was a wonderful lady, supervisor and friend. She taught me “Bumble Bee Christmas Tree” to remember color code in electronics at Grand Forks Infrastructure shop, plus a lot more. She had a wealth of knowledge and knew how to get things done. Whenever she talked about Sami you could tell she was a very loving mother and wife. She will be greatly missed. Hal and I send our condolences and our prayers are with you and your family.

    Sami, I am Lis’s mom. You and Lis are such great friends, I haven’t got to know you that well yet. Hoping that will change this summer during softball. I am very sorry to hear of your mom’s passing. Please know that we are here for you and your dad anytime.

    I am so sad to hear of Cindy’s passing. I can’t imagine how her family is feeling. Patty, if you read this, give me a call when you can. I just don’t know how to process this news, she was so young. I am truly sorry for you guys.

    Bob, Sami, and Family,

    May you remember Cindy for all the joy and happiness she brought to others. I remember Sami sitting in the office ‘boss’ chair, and Cindy and Bob in the opposite side of the desk, totally enamored with Sami. It was one of the most heartwarming things I have ever seen and has stuck with me. Thank you for the life lessons you taught.
