Beloved daughter of Dorothy and Tom Ricketson, treasured sister, adored Aunt, cherished friend. She was kind, complex, and intelligent, deeply passionate about the people, creatures and causes that were fortunate to be loved and supported by her.
Her home in the meadow was her sanctuary, a beacon to songbirds, especially Bluebirds who nested in homes she had hung upside down "so they would have a front porch", reptiles and amphibians were no less welcome to live peaceably.
The various pets she'd rescued or adopted during her life could not have known a deeper commitment to their well-being and comfort. She was a generous and cheerful giver, a gracious and humble receiver. She would not show up empty handed or at least without the offer of bringing something with her.
She liked icy Classic Coke in the little bottles, lattes with a gazillion" pumps" of flavor, family gatherings, celebrations, shoes, movies, riding her horse, fishing (or anytime) with her Dad, visits with her Mom, playtime and adventures with her three little nieces. She rarely met a vegetable she liked. The beach was her happy place. Her eyes were the color of blue water and she smelled like sunshine and L'Air Du Temps.
Cindy also knew deep grief and anxiety although she held her feelings close. Truly empathetic she would put others first, a champion of the underdog or needy.
She was the sunflower in our life garden.
Today our loss is visceral and unimaginable, yet we cling to our hope for tomorrow and the belief we will be together again.
