  • Emily Clement Stevens

    Dear Cindy, I hope that you and your family will feel the comfort of the Holy Ghost to help you through this brief time of separation. So tough to lose a sibling that you were so close too. Wishing you peace and comfort.

    • Cindy Lou Sturgiss

      Thank you Emily. I still have that picture of you in the butterfly sunglasses from your mission. Love you.

  • Jacob, Alec and I are deeply saddened by Dan’s passing but are grateful that he is out of pain and in a better place. We will miss him and are blessed to have had him in our lives.

    • Cindy Lou Sturgiss

      Thank you very much. You are part of our family. I know Dan loves you still, just has to do it from Heaven. Perhaps with his help from the other side, Jacob will one day believe in God. You never know, God works in mysterious ways. Thank you for your love and kindness over all the years. We all love you!
