On Wednesday morning at 3:45, Cynthia made her way to a new
existence. As you would expect, she was not to be rushed,
hanging on to dear life for 4 days after entering a coma
following a six month battle with uterine metastatic cancer.
During this time, she was pain free and well tended to by 24/7
home hospice care, loving friends and family, and of course her
forever devoted Aurora. She was blessed and helped along her
path by a visit from two Tibetan Buddhist monks on Monday before
her passing and finally by the soft chant of ZuZu=E2=80=99s voice at
her last breath. 

Cynthia chose to be cremated without the fanfare of an elaborate
memorial service. We are honoring her wishes and will gather
with family to reflect on her life and to share fond memories.
Thanks to all who have reached out to provide support and
comfort over the last few days. It has made a tremendous

I knew Kynthia (her preferred spelling) for several years as she
helped with research on Trindade Island and obtained some
valuable resources. I will miss her. She was a feisty lady with
an earthy sense of humor.

Probably many of you didn't know her as she was a US citizen who
lived in Brazil for many years and just came back to the states
a couple of years ago to live with her daughter and son-in-law
in CA.

Kynthia was a Brazilian ufologist and a close associate of Bob
Pratt. She had a wide range of interests including Fortean
events and anthropology with an MA in Experimental Psychology.
She loved her home in Brazil and really hated to leave, but she
was getting up there in age and back hills living was getting a
bit much for her. However, that didn't keep her from being a
very active person and always trucking around to UFO meetings or
digging into something that caught her attention.

She was a great story teller and there was always something
scandalous tripping off her tongue either the maid running off
with one of her visitors or some Fortean event she was looking
into. She was a MUFON representative (Director, Eastern Brazil)
for many years in Brazil though I don't know what her current
status with MUFON was at the time of her passing.
