I am so sadden by Cinthia's death. She was a wonderful woman. She loved her children so much and she took care if my babies like her own. She will be missed by me and my family. Her death left a hole in all of our hearts. I envision her taking care of those young children from Sandy Hill and comforting them. Thank you or being such a hard worker and wonderful person Cinthia!
