In Memory of Cindy Enerson

On March 3rd, we sadly learned that Cindy Enerson passed away with her family at her site. Cindy's compassionate leadership inspired everyone associated with Friends where Cindy served as a member of Friends board of directors and Treasurer.  We were blessed to have been Cindy’s colleagues at Friends and to be inspired by Cindy’s extraordinary love for others.  Cindy modeled humanity, compassion and dedication to kindness and goodness.  In these ways alone, Cindy invited us, by showing the way, to be our best and model love in service to others.  It is as humbling and encouraging as it is inspiring to have witnessed how gracefully, elegantly and thoroughly Cindy loved others while battling life-threatening cancer, enduring countless cancer treatments and side-effects.   Cindy was upbeat, encouraging and always talking about her family.  God has called Cindy, one of His best, home.  Please pray for Cindy’s family.  Thank God for our time with Cindy and the incredible legacy of love she gave us and positioned Friends to share with many others.  

A celebration of life is planned in Cindy’s honor for April 22, 2023 at the church she and her family attended. Donations to Friends and the Colorectal Cancer Alliance organizations in Cindy’s name, via the links below, are encouraged and welcomed. Anyone wishing to express condolences to her family are invited to contact Gerety & Associates, CPAs, where Cindy was a shareholder for information.

In Memory of Jeffery Warren Devitt

We greatly miss Jeffery Warren Devitt, a dear friend of Friends and an ardent supporter of Friends' mission.  There are countless times when Jeff and Jerry generously brought Friends donations of jackets, appliances and vital supplies that positioned Friends to reliably show love and compassion to the hungry and needful we serve.  Always there for Friends, Jeff's contributions to Friends have touched the thousands of guests we serve and the Friends volunteers and administrators. Jeff had just began serving as Senior Warden at St. Timothy's Episcopal Church in Henderson, NV, when he passed.  Along with the good people of St. Timothy's, we miss Jeff and celebrate his life and how he taught us to care for and about others.
