    I liked Cynthia so much when we both attended Wesleyan. Life on campus could get rather stodgy. Seeing Cynthia, as we wandered back and forth across the hall in the senior dorm, was such a lift. She had such a
    great sense of humour, she was different, when you talked to Cynthia you knew there was a life "outside".
    She was a bit goofy, but very smart and very talented. I'm sorry we lost touch. I did visit she and Warren
    once after graduation, on my way to somewhere. In 1969 I moved to New Zealand and never saw her again.
    She was a delight, would have taken the road less travelled as I did, that is always a brave and risky move.

    Thank you Cynthia, for all the many many laughs. You were always so uplifting, my friend.

    I liked Cynthia so much while we were both at Wesleyan. She was funny, different, special. i visited she and
    Warren after we graduated on my way somewhere. She was someone, one of the few, I would love to have
    kept in touch with. But I moved to New Zealand, and didn't see her again. Much love, Cindy, and here's to your
    wonderful sense of humour and many many laughs as we wandered back and forth across the hall, in the
    senior dorm.
