Nice, loving, caring, free-spirited, friendly and fun are the words that describe Cynthia best. Cynthia was an avid lover of music, dance, gardening, and her family. She was most noted in the family for taking care of everybody’s children, doing their hair, and making them perform. Cynthia also fulfilled God’s word by honoring her mother who she took care of with great love.
