Cynthia and I were in theater together at Mississippi College. Friends then, we rediscovered the friendship when called by Mississippi College to scan records -there only a million or so. There was time to grow close and share love, hopes and concerns for our children and families. We could sing praises and join in prayer. Cynthia is one of the most genuine through and through souls I have ever met. Her life was Christ and she was a godly wife and mother. I admired her so!! She will be missed on this side but greeted joyously on the other when we meet by the River. Love- BR
