  1. Heartfelt sympathy and the peace of loving memories to you all. I’m so sorry this disease has stricken your family and such a loving soul as Cynthia. I worked with her for many years at Sam’s Club. I was just a kid when I started, and she made it not so scary being my first “real” job that turned into a 13-year career. Every year, we celebrated her anniversary and my birthday, and always joked around about that day in history being the day the world found out “Who shot J.R.?” Ewing on Dallas. Still makes me smile. Thank you, Lord, for giving us Cynthia for a time. She is greatly missed by all who knew her.

  2. My Sincere Condolences to all of Cynthy’s family.
    Eternal rest, grant unto her, O Lord. And let perpetual light shine upon her.
    May she Rest In Peace. Amen♥️🌹
