  3. Dear Dear Cunico Family,

    Seldom, if ever, are you lucky enough to meet someone with the sincere softness and kindness that your mother always carried around with her. She had welcoming eyes that told you that she cared. You guys are lucky to be able to call her mom. I remember all the time at Runyon Field, when everyone was screaming their fool heads off, and your mom just smiled. What an amazing family.

  4. Loretta, Cindy, and Mike. Your Mom was such a kind lady. Our thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family. Sonny{Feiix} Mestas and Family.

  5. Cindy, I’m so sorry to read about the death of your sweet Mom! Jim and i loved talking to her. Thinking of you and your family. Sending love.

  6. Cindy, I am so sorry about your mom. Please know my thoughts are with you. Are you retired fully now? If you ever want to get together just call. Take care. Martha Connor
