Cynthia and I became friends in elementary school.  What a wonderful sweet young girl.  She was truly a gift from God for all of us.

Some things were a little harder for her, but she would smile and made me smile.

I agree with Tim.  I never remember seeing her without a smile on her face.  When you saw that smile you could not help but smile yourself.

In spite of Cynthia' challenges, she always did her best, had a good career and was respected in all she did. She will be missed!
