Mark and Boys. Know that her family in Evansville is so sad to hear of our beautiful cousin passing.

Mark and boys, I am so sorry about Cynthia. She was a wonderful cousin to me and all her cousins. Growing up she never minded us younger girls invading her space. She styled our hair and talked to us about everything. She had such a loving way . Although we hadn’t seen each other in a while, learning of her passing leaves a hole in my heart. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.
