Remembering treasured friend, Mrs. Cynthia Rowe



2019-07-21 - Columbia - Photo by Brandy Held.

Brandy Held writes, "It is with a very heavy heart I come to y'all with news of the loss of Mrs. Cynthia Rowe. Not only was she a long time Jaycees/Fair Association member, having held a number of offices within the club, she was also a treasured personal friend.

Cynthia made me feel very welcome in this Community from day one, she was always there to lend a helping hand, and her opinion,(if you liked it or not). She encouraged, and supported me in every crazy endeavor I decided to take on.

I'll miss her calls, texts and visits just to check on me. She was one of a kind. If everyone could keep her family surrounded in prayers in the days to come, I know it would be appreciated. There is nothing like loosing a Mother/Grandmother.

RIP my sweet friend. Goodbye, until I meet you in the outskirts of Heaven. - Brandy
