It is with great sorrow that I must inform you of the passing of a great woman, a fellow colleague and friend who has meant so much to the North Country Center for Independence and to this community. Cindy Bryan was a tireless worker who was absolutely devoted to NCCI and especially to the consumers that she served. Cindy was a giver and she carried the weight of the economic injustice that she saw daily on her shoulders. Cindy was NCCI’s Medicaid Facilitated Enroller for the aged, blind and disabled but she did so much more. She was an incredibly skilled finance person and acted as a mentor for both the Executive Director and Financial Director of the agency. There wasn’t anything she wouldn’t do to help her colleagues. She made people’s lives better. Although we are greatly diminished by her loss, I know that she is encouraging us from the next life to keep on fighting and working for the people that we serve. Let us always remember her as a person who was devoted to making the world a better place. Cindy, thank you for your service, thank you for touching our lives, we will miss you, good bye for now.
To Cindy’s family, we send our deepest sympathies. Thank you so much for sharing her with us. She meant the world to this organization and to the people she helped.
