|Into the Twilight|
Just a few days ago, my dear friend Cyndy took her last breath on this Earth and passed over into the twilight.
It was quite a shock to receive the news last night, and her family and friends are still in a state of surrealism. It is never an easy thing to lose our loved ones.
What I know about Cyndy is that she lived her life full-stop while she walked among us. Her spirit was one of love and compassion, and always lending a helping hand. Even her own illnesses did not stop her from wanting to experience life to the fullest.
Her passing reminds me how important it is to stay in the moment, each and every minute of every day. And that by listening to other's life stories, we can forget about our own worries and fill our hearts and minds with bigger thoughts.

To be true to our souls purpose is what leads us to happiness. And what a great role model for that was Cyndy! Through all her life's trials, she kept her humor intact.
Cyndy loved music, and especially Bluegrass music. Her family's roots in Georgia and South Carolina are strong, and encouraged her participation in singing in a Bluegrass band with her friends.
She was one of those friends you could call in the middle of the night and she would be there for you. There are so many lovely memories I have of just spending time with Cyndy.
She is and will be sorely missed by all of her family and friends. There is certainly a big hole in our hearts now for losing her presence.
So I will focus my thoughts on her Life, and what that means to me. And feel and remember her fun and loving presence in my heart.
Here's a toast to you, Cyndy, my friend. And God bless you. You live on in the love in our hearts!
