Sweet Girl Cinda

Today I read that Cinda, one of the African Elephants at the Sedgwick County Zoo in Wichita KS, died. She was 43 years old, and lived in Wichita since 1972.

Over the summer, James and I had the privilege to meet Cinda. James bought me a print of her trunk on canvas, called an “elephant kiss” and gave it to me for Valentine’s Day earlier this year.

In reading the many comments on the news article and on the zoo’s facebook page about her passing, it is clear how much she meant to so many people through the years, including James and me.
