So sorry to read this news. Cynthia was such a phenomenal talent with the personality to match. I was privileged to be the music director at St. Albert´s Church in Sun Prairie, Wisconsin from 1990 to 2009. Every time Cynthia was visiting her family, she would play her flute for Masses. What a wonderful treat, to say the least. Cynthia will be greatly missed. May she rest in eternal peace and love. Deepest condolences and sympathy to Cynthia´s family and loved ones.
