From Cynthia:

Where have 50 years gone? Was it not yesterday that we were all seniors? My journey has taken me through peaks and valleys like everyone else. But everything considered, I have been blessed beyond belief. It all began with all of you in high school. After graduating from KU, I taught in Parsons for 1 year and married at Christmas. Porter was a CPA and got a job in Kansas City. I taught 4 more years in Kansas City, and then we started a family, and I was so fortunate to stay at home and raise 3 wonderful children. As college approached for all three, I went back into the work force heading up a relocation division for what became the largest real estate broker in Kansas City. During that time I was recruited to work for the #1 relocation company in the country; then asked to start a relocation consortium of 5 small Coldwell Banker companies in KC. I now have had the opportunity to begin a woman owned relocation company for the largest Keller Williams company in KC……and, what do you know, in a blink of an eye………28 years have passed.

My children are my finest achievement, but dare I say they pale to the grandchildren. Who knew grandchildren would create a whole new world and sense of love within you???

Two years ago, right now, I was diagnosed with an aggressive cervical cancer. What a shock! I was again blessed in that they got it all, but had to endure radiation and chemotherapy as a precaution. FYI…..it takes about 1 ½ years for your hair to grow back fully. And mine came back curly!! I will say what many of us already know by now, that something as life threatening as cancer, can be a blessing in your life! It changes your perspective…….how suddenly you realize what is important in your life………and what is not.

We all experienced a wonderful moment in time together. I’m so looking forward to seeing everyone soon!
