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 difference. 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.
