Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — In what some may consider a satisfying twist, family and friends of the Stricklins are doing something good for them, as well. A benefit for Cindi is planned for 1 to 5 p.m. March 3 at the American Legion — A.J. Jurek Post No. 162 in Amherst. Her mom and dad, who she calls her best friends, and her brother, William Owens, are leading the charge for her and those who want more information or to donate a basket, can visit www.courageforcindi.website.com or call Ralph Owens, at 471-8681.

Her dad was deeply touched by his daughter’s resolve to bring comfort to the innocent, mistreated dogs at a time in her own life when comfort is hard to come by. “There are day when she can hardly take care of herself but yet this beautiful lady can find the strength and love to reach out and rescue puppies,” he wrote in an email about Cindi, adding, simply, “God, I love her!”
