From Kathy Cross Ruffino: "We will be remembering and celebrating Cindy on Sunday, January 29th, beginning with a paddle out at 11:30 a.m. on the south side of the Huntington Beach pier. She loved this city, the people and our surf culture; I can't imagine a better way to honor her memory than to grab your boards and join us for this beautiful tradition.
A Celebration of Life will follow at 2:00 p.m. at the Villa Pacific Clubhouse (Brookhurst/Hamilton). Cindy never wanted what she considered a sad, traditional memorial, so we will be celebrating her life party-style: casual attire (no black funeral clothes, please), and an open mic to share some of your funny stories and memories of Cindy. Lastly, we are asking in lieu of flowers that guests bring a children's book to be donated in Cindy's name honoring her love of children and reading."
