“Cyndy Miller is the most amazing lady. After we lost our house through a fire, Cyndy was there like an angel. Cyndy was so passionate and caring; personable, yet professional. Although we can't wait to move back into our home, it will be bitter-sweet realizing that she won't be around. My wife and I will certainly miss her.”
