Pictures in Memorium of Cynthia Corzilius (10/6/62 - 7/1/04)

I hope these photographs can provide a little insight to the person she was -- a person of kindness to those that needed help, of high expectations for herself and her work, and of self-sufficiency in her pain. There was much she shared (and could be learned) to those that took the time to listen. And most importantly, even though she was my sister, she was also my friend -- I will truly miss her...

Momentos of Cynthia


And it Rained on us (tsk, tsk Cynthia!)...


The cremains urn we prepared for her. We used the wing motif to not only signify her 'I winged it' epitaph but also to signify her freedom from pain and her transition to the next level (e.g. the Phoenix). The 'cord' is Indian sweet grass and the wax seal stamp is the Egyptian eye that sees all.
