    Cynthia, you were taken from us far too soon, but you will always be in our hearts. I never even got to meet you, yet after all the years of sharing stories, opinions, laughing together online, I came to regard you as a dear friend and kindred soul. Your wisdom, humility and humanity are things that inspired me and always will. Wherever you are, I hope I get to join you there one day.

    I will always miss you, dear friend and sister in spirit, and I am just one of many. My love and condolences to MC and David; to Duck, Pod, Fluffis and Little Man; and to the baby Starfish and his family. You are a bright star. We'll connect again, bye and bye.

    Cynthia, I will miss your humor, your stories, and hearing about your kitties. You were way too young and you should still be here with us. Hoping for the best for MJ and your family. You will not be forgotten. Love, Mew

    Cynthia was a very intelligent person, both a historian and a constant source of inspiration in my life. She was unique, and now the universe is less aware -- and less rich -- with her passing. I will miss my sister.
