I was saddened to hear of Cynthia’s passing. My mother thought and spoke very highly of her and her devotion to her faith, family and friends. She was always so kind and seemed to always be smiling. May our Father comfort those who mourn and may she rest in peace.

Cynthia was such a sweet and friendly person. When we lived in SN no matter where we saw her rather the Freez or elsewhere, she always stopped to talk with us. Even when she was dealing and fighting the cancer, she remembered Mahlon with a beautiful card and her prayers! Sending our heartfelt sympathy to each and everyone.
