Cynthia Alves, you will always be in my heart and memories. From the moment I met you we became great friends and even though God took you we will always be great friends. Thank you so much for taking Jamie under your wings and treating her like a daughter. Also, you meant the world to Eva and treated her like a granddaughter and I know she will never forget you. Best times were had by us when on vacation at yours and Ricky’s home. Loved the times spent in pool with our wine and having fun with Eva. Love and miss you and someday we will be together again. So glad you are at peace now but miss you so much. Love you!!!

It has been a whirlwind the past 7 months. We have had our ups and downs. It was such an amazing day when we recently learned you were in remission and didn't have to go back for 3 months! Exactly what we have been waiting for. To lose you less then a week after hearing that news is heartbreaking. I am still in shock and denial that you are gone. We still had lots to do, places to go and conversations to have. I know our lives will go on without you, but they will never be the same! Know that you have a big piece of my heart and I will keep your memory alive in Eva's life forever!! Until we meet again!
