Buffy, Mandy and Brittini, I am so sorry to hear about your moms passing. My mom, Mary Sue, was Cynthia's first cousin. I have fond memories of going over to Aunt Annie and Uncle Fred's house and spending time with Cynthia. I loved to play in her room with her dolls and toys. I was a flower girl in her wedding when I was about 5 or 6 years old. Then, when I was married in 1987, Mandy was the flower girl in my wedding. I will be praying and remembering you all and your families during this sad time. Love, Sara Smith Stevens

Buffy, Mandi, and Brittini, and families, we were sad to hear of Cynthia's passing. Our memories with Cynthia were when she was growing up and we visited back and forth in our homes. She was special to us and we loved her very much. Occasionally we connected by phone and we were always glad to hear how she was getting along as well as enjoying the reading of your family activities on facebook. It was special for Mandi to be in Sara's wedding some years ago. You were a beautiful flower girl, Mandi. We love all of you and our prayers are with you. I wish we could attend the memorial service but distance and health issues prevent it. Again, we love you.

I am heartbroken to hear of Cindy's passing. Although we had not spoken in several years, Cindy was one of my dearest friends during my time in North Carolina. I loved the part in her obituary that stated if she loved you, you knew it! Very true words about her! Buffy, Miranda, and Brittini, I love you and you all are in my thoughts and prayers!
