I came to know Cynthia in March 1988. We became friends almost immediately. She will always be in my heart and thoughts. My condolences to the family.

My beautiful sister, oh how I will cherish each second that I had with you. You had the most beautiful soul that shined in everything you did. I do believe that God brought us back together even if it was for a short time. May you rest in the arms of Jesus and rejoice with the Lord. Every time I hear or read " I can do all things through Christ who strengths me " I will remember you because that was your favorite saying. Until I see you again SIS !!!! Much Love my Big Sister MUAH

Ms. Cynthia you will be missed dearly! I will always hold onto the memories of coming and staying at my second home(your house) visiting Roseann when we were children and you always treating me as your own. My prayers are with the entire family at this time. May God give you all the much needed strength during this difficult time.
