To all the family, friends, and others who supported her in this journey, we are forever grateful. While today, we say goodbye to Cynthia’s physical presence, her soul will forever be with us in our hearts as the feeling of warm sun rays touching our faces.
Although life can be difficult we continue to embrace hope even in the darkest of days. In the future, may we find some solace in knowing that Cynthia’s vibrant presence is not gone, but lives on in the hearts of those she touched.
