Cindy Lovell has been one of Hannibal's best assets. We're sad to lose her, but I'm confident she'll still be working with us.

Cindy Lovell has been one of the best things to ever happen to Hannibal. I'm very sad to lose her, but I'm confident she'll still be working with us again because making connections and thinking on a grand scale is what she does.

From launching the Mark Twain Words & Music CD project (that only Cindy could have dreamed of) to strengthening Mark Twain Home Foundation endowment, Hannibal has experienced over 10 years of growth in the few years Cindy has been at the helm of the Mark Twain Museum. Her vision and enthusiasm have been like a light in a darkened room. She has built friendships here that will last a lifetime and connections that will help spread the word of Mark Twain and Hannibal throughout the nation - if not the world.

In the future it would benefit us all to think of Cindy as we continue our work in Hannibal. Let's think as big as Cindy. Let's collaborate to make Hannibal a place that we can be proud of - and continue the vision that Cindy has started.
