I remember a wonderful Christmas gathering at Sherwood where Cynthia arrived wearing a beautiful Mrs. Santa gown. We were doing the usual festive activities, talking and visiting with friends and just enjoying the company. Then George managed to get Cynthia's Santa gown and stuff his big ol' body into it and proceeded to dance around the Trip. Cynthia and I were laughing so hard we were crying, as were many others.
I also remember with fondness, the Proposal, probably the most epic proposal ever, and not one dry eye in the crowd. Beauty, brains, and elegance. Farewell friend!

When Cynthia approached me to be the photographer for her and Shane’s wedding I was really flattered. The wedding was so much fun. They were so goofy and so in love. Cynthia was completely charming. It was easy to see why so many people loved her. I’ll never forget her big smile and warm heart. She will always be loved and never forgotten.

Cynthia, we first met when I had the honor of planning your previous wedding. You were so much fun and wonderful to work with! Even when others were going crazy, you were calm. I'll never forget your wedding day... the entire wedding party was extremely hungover and some were running late. But not you... you were gorgeous and ready to go. When it came time for you to come down the hill (in a carriage) I was told that the best man had an emergency run to the restroom. Rather than continue to the chapel, you chose to turn the carriage around and wait until he could collect himself. I'll never forget you waving to everyone in the chapel (waiting for your arrival) as the carriage turned around and left. You were so funny and they were so shocked that you were leaving! Of course, the best man returned and we completed the ceremony, but it and the reception were full of laughs and jokes.

I had the pleasure of seeing you often at faire and when I learned that you and Shane were together, I realized that you were finally with your true soul mate. The two of you were amazing together and so happy. I'll never forget running into the two of you one afternoon at faire and when Shane hugged me, he whispered that I needed to come with you to the Three Stags. A few moments later, my sweet friend Shane proposed to you with the most beautiful speech I've ever heard. He had made you a ring that represented the joining of the two of you, as well as your families. I have thought of that day often and have truly never seen such a beautiful moment in all my years of creating weddings.

You and Shane had a beautiful life together and your kids are amazing! I know that you were loved more than anything, as well as being cherished. Not only by Shane, but by your children, your families, and your friends. Every time I saw you, there was that gorgeous smile and the graciousness that comes from a truly great and loving woman.

That is how I will always remember you.

I met Cynthia when we were 15. We were a little wild but in an innocent way. We called her Cyn in those days. She saved my life. I would not be walking this earth today if she had not held onto me with all her might as I bounced along side the moving car I had fallen from. I hear her clear as if it was happening now yelling at me to hold my head up. As the car slowed she was loosing her grip. She yelled that she couldn’t hold on. One last scream to me. Tuck and roll! She saved my life. She was the first one to me when the car stopped. I don’t remember all of that night but I remember Cyn’s voice and her hands on my face. I remember her making me only look at her until the police and ems arrived. We were 15. She had the presence of mind to do all of that at 15. Facebook allowed us to reconnect. She will always be the girl who saved me. I did not see this sad news until a few minutes ago. I wish I would have seen it earlier. I would have liked to tell her family what a wonderful person she was and remind them she was a superhero in a tiny body. Love to all of you. I am so sorry for your pain. Jessica Washam (LoCicero)

I first met you on the day of your previous wedding. It was a cold day and you didn't have anything with you to keep warm as you attended the reception at Sherwood so I took off my cloak and gave it to you. I was taken back by your looks and charm. You came off as a very classy lady and I was more than happy to offer you my cloak at that very important time. You very graciously returned it to me afterwards. I was so sad at the ending of that marriage but was so happy about your next one! I admire and respect Shane very much and am glad you both were able to share your lives together for the time you had. Whenever I saw the two of you, I had the sense that I was in the presence of royalty whether anyone else had felt that way or not. Precious couple, precious children. I am glad to have known you for the brief time that that was. Rest easy now and may fair winds guide you to your next destination. Much love to you and your family.

We've known each other for many years. We've meet at work, see each other on and off.
Cynthia was a bright woman who was a great influence to people.
She had great admiration for her mom, and she had a great willingness to strive.
My thoughts are for you and your children Cynthia. Deepest condolence, you left us way too soon.
Much love.

Remember that the memories that you have are in your soul as well as your hearts. My thoughts are with you as you go though this hard time.

Cynthia is now such a beautiful angel in the Heaven's above. Forever to sit by the arm of Jesus, and to smile her glorious smile. To feel no pain, only the comfort and glory of our Lord.

I pray for peace and comfort to follow. God will look over you.

I remember one of the first times I met cynthia, ashly took me to mesa rosa and her family made me feel so welcome. I ordered the nachos and cynthia got the Monterey chicken, and she insisted that I tried it. so I did and it was so good and she said “I bet you wish you got this instead of those nasty nachos huh?” and we just laughed about it.
cynthia would always tell me to just be who I am and not to care what people thought about me. she had such a genuine soul and i’ll miss her so much.

Hard to think about your passing. Almost 20 years ago you and I worked together. You were so amart, i looked up to you! I remember us telling stories about our boys. Yours son was just about to be 2 and mine was 4. We compared how they were growing and their milestones. You were so kind and fun!



Taken from Cynthia's post, of October 21st, 2015. She shared it again, on that same day, in 2018.

"If I've learned anything thus far it's that there will always be trials and tribulations, beautiful days and dark times, joyous occasions and seasons of mourning. But I can always choose to keep dancing."

were thought to be insane
