Cynthia was very loyal to her family and close friends and her generosity was unparalleled. In times of need she did not hesitate to help friends and extended family who still speak of her tender heart.
Her family, church and life-long friends were a very dear and important part of her life. She often reminisced, sharing fond memories she had in Guyana, Jamaica, England, Canada and the United States. Her piano and dresser overflowed with pictures of those she loved and were her pride and joy.
