    My sympathies go out to Cynthia's family. I went to Junior High and High School with this fun gal and will always remember her ability to get us all laughing. 50 plus years have gone by but her memory will live on for me and many of her classmates from the class of '66

    Those we love remain with us for love itself lives on, and cherished memories never fade because a loved one's gone. Those we love can never be more than a thought apart. For as long as there is a memory, they'll live in on in our hearts. (Author Unknown)

    This really saddens me to hear this. Cindy was a great person. We worked together @ PFC & we always figured out a way to make it a fun day. Big hugs to Jorge, Kids & Grandkids. Fly high my friend.
