Well.. I've had some time to sit and think, emotions are pretty thin. My heart is truly broken from the recent passing of my beloved Aunt Cynthia. Thought I would've had a little more time to think of what I'd say.. But time ran out extremely quick, as time usually does. Just wanted to say that I'll truly miss you and our time we shared. Nothing made me feel better than seeing you on a Friday to get my hair cut, also to vent about EVERYTHING while sitting in your chair. Seeing you those days made me feel instantly better about myself and LIFE in general..Cant thank you enough for the therapy you provided me. Also wanted to thank you for always being there during my early years, Like an extra big sister to help shape the man that I've become..Now, you can finally enjoy some YOU time. You honestly deserve it. I'm not a religious man, but if there is another chapter..Hope to see you on the other side..I'll sincerely miss you..I love you.. Tomcat..

Oh Cindy, My precious sister in Christ and co-worker. We had so many laughs, talks and cries together. You taught me how to love the unlovable, but still fail at it daily. I have not ever met someone who always saw the good in others first. You endured till the end, honey girl! I miss you to the moon and beach and back. She loved the beach. The best hair stylist I have ever had the privilege to work with. You my precious lady are very missed. Love, Marlene

To know Cindy was to Love her. She made you feel as if you were her best friend and so easy to talk to. Living about 3 hours south, we didn't see her that often, but visiting Treasure Coast Church we'd get a chance to visit and meeting her in the restroom changing Cara's baby girl, I said, "oh, Cindy, this child looks like your daughter! " It was as if she had her daughter again taking care of that baby girl. We shared the loss of our own family member and would say, "they are together happy in heaven".
When her brother in law was injured and in Miami, we'd visit at the hospital and there she was with her sister Carol. She did all she could to be a support and we'd enjoy visiting them. We felt her loving spirit as she gave 100% of herself. Advice on our hair, clothes, whatever it was.
She spoke of how much she loved the Lord and wasn't shy to tell you. We know she won her crown, her Mansion was prepared for her. She got to hug her Cara and our prayer is that one day we'll all be reunited in His Kingdom, never to part. I pray her sweet Spirit visits each of her family members, we know the Lord is loving and kind and gives us special visits from our Loved ones.
