Please Pray...

for my friend Cindy Lytle and her family. I just found out that Cindy was killed in horrible car crash today.

I met Cindy at Stevens Creek Community Church. Her smiling face drew you in, and she had a wonderful sense of humor, which she used on The Creek's drama team. She played keyboard and piano for the praise team. She was a wonderful person and will be truly missed. She is survived by her husband Rob, their children Suzanna and Jonathan, and his wife Ruthann, along with 2 grandsons.

Here is her bio, from the Stevens Creek Website:

Cindy Lytle was born in Lincoln, Nebraska. Cindy has also lived in New Mexico, Texas, Colorado, Somalia, East Africa, and currently lives in Georgia. Cindy attended Northwest Texas Hospital School of Nursing in Amarillo, Texas where she received her nursing degree. Cindy is currently a part-time psychology student at Augusta State University.

Cindy worked briefly at Church of the Harvest in the early 1990's and returned to The Creek in October, 2002 where she works as a receptionist.

As of October, 2002, Cindy has been working part-time as receptionist in the SCCC office while she is also a student at ASU.

Cindy and her husband Rob Lytle have a son, Jonathan and a daughter, Suzanna, as well as a daughter-in-law RuthAnn and two grandsons. Kelly, the dog and Midnight the kitty complete their family. Cindy takes great delight in playing piano or keyboard for the music team as well as participating in the drama team where she both acts and writes.

Linda, I found your blog from a link on a link of a friend's blog--kind of a weird coincidence when I decided to blog surf for a few minutes tonight.
First, I'm really sorry to hear about your friend. It's so hard when things like that happen! She seems like someone who was a joy to all who knew her...what a great lady she must have been.

Anyway, it's GREAT to see your blog and see what your family is up to. I just wanted to say hi, and congrats on the CW3 for your husband--awesome. We are doing well, living at Fort Huachuca but getting ready to move on to Hawaii this summer.

(And just between you and me, you're still my favorite "commander's wife" so far!)

It always seems somehow more heartbreaking when someone is taken so unexpectedly. So sad.
