    My deepest condolences to family and friends! I worked very closely with Cindy at CMG, until we were laid off. Cindy was a riot! We talked a lot of sh*t and laughed until we had belly aches. Cindy seemed healthy and in good spirits so this comes as a surprise to me. All my love, Laura

    Dear Buck and Family,
    I will never forget Cindy’s laugh and all the emails she would send regarding the exciting news that she would soon be a grandma. Cindy was always so proud of her family. She was wonderful at keeping people smiling and always knew how to be someone to lean on. I never really got to know Cindy’s family except for through her. We worked together for many years at Carlson. She was an amazing woman and someone I will forever look up to. Such a loving soul and really free spirited. My thoughts are with her family during this time. I am very sorry for your loss, and I am very grateful to have had the opportunity of knowing such a courageous woman.

    To the family of Cindy Marschel;
    My wife and I were very saddened to hear of the loss of Cindy. Death is always hard to deal with, my wife loss two Brothers within 6 months of each other. We took comfort in God’s word, it gave us real confidence in the resurrection.

    Job 14:14, asked the question; “If a man die, shall he live again?” Perhaps you, too, have wondered about this. How would you feel if you knew that a reunion with Cindy was possible right here on earth under the best of conditions?

    The Bible makes the promise: “Your dead ones will live. . . . They will rise up.” Isaiah 26:19. God did not originally intend for humans to die. “He is a God, not of the dead, but of the living, for they are all living to him.”

    Yes, Almighty God has not only the power but also the desire to resurrect persons whom he chooses. Jesus Christ himself said: “Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out.”—John 5:28, 29;

    (Revelation 21:4) And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”

    It is my hope that you and your family were encourage by these few line.

    Your family is in our prayers. Cindy was an amazing person. I worked with her at 3M in Hutchinson MANY years ago – and she was the hardest working person I had ever met. She was well liked and respected there as well. Treasure the great memories your family must have had over the years. She was a truly remarkable person.
