    Dear Cindy, I just learned of your husband’s passing recently. I want you to know that you’re in my thoughts and prayers. Although I never had the opportunity to meet Marty, I know he was very loved by many. I know your pain Cindy after losing my Leo in August. It’s rough, but do know that you are thought of as you go through grief. God bless you, be strong and hugs to you. Love, Rachel
