"Hold on to what is good, even if it's a handful of earth. Hold on to what you believe, even if it's a tree that stands by itself. Hold on to what you must do, even if it's a long way from here. Hold on to your life, even if it's easier to let go. Hold on to my hand, even if someday I'll be gone away from you." ~A Pueblo Indian Prayer

Cynthia's life and her love of family and friends was so remarkable and her smile was always genuine and welcoming. What a grand lady. I first met Cynthia in the office at The Church of the Messiah shortly after the death of Homer. I had only been working at the church for about a year but we seemed to connect. Our friendship spanned many years and I know for sure that I was influenced by her joy and her acceptance of everyone without judgement. She was one of my favorite parishioners at Messiah during my time there. How she loved those lobster sandwiches at Quarterdeck! I will forever hold Cynthia in my heart.

Dear Tammy & Dick: We can't begin to express our sorrow in learning of the passing of your mother. She was a part of our family. We will cherish the memories of our times together those many summers and our visits to see her at Christmastime in later years. Your mother was a true friend and alway showed great kindness to each member of our family. She was a wonderful woman and will live in our hearts forever.

Cynthia taught me more about color knitting than I would ever have imagined. Her stitches were always perfect, her carries short with no bulk or back color showing. I am honored to have been her pupil.
