“Dear Mrs. Dubay and Family: I am just so, so sorry to learn of Cynthia's passing. Such shocking news for everyone! She was so young and vibrant! I haven't talked to Cyndy (as I knew her) in many years but we had met in The Miss Saginaw County Beauty Pageant...I remember her as a good friend, always so giving to everyone else around her, kind, loving and alot of fun to be around. She knew the true meaning of being a good and loyal friend and always true to herself! Character traits such as these are rare. As her family, I can only imagine how proud you all were of her!! :) I will be praying for you now and in the coming days ahead as you try to find some peace and comfort in dealing with this tragedy. Most Sincerely, Valerie”

“I don't have the words to discribe the sorrow I feel ,or the pain you must undergo by this loss. Although I've not spoken the Cindy in (too many) years I still remember her fondly as someone from my youth that made me who I am today. Cindly was always kind and soft spoken, and who was always quick with motherly ( at 15) adives or lovingly scolding Tim or Bob for their horseplay. I know she'll be she's somewhere good. I'm so sorry, Jim Rosa ”
