April 27, 2013 20 Condolences Print Obituary

May 25, 1962 – April 26, 2013

Cynthia peacefully passed away on April 26, 2013, after her long, off-and-on battle against ovarian cancer. She died at the age of 50.

Her two daughters, Patricia and Pia, son, Paolo, and husband, Arnel will miss all the love and attention she unselfishly gave to her family. She will be affectionately remembered by her parents – Mel & Jean, and by her siblings Dennis, Chiqui, Bob, Pinky and the rest of the family. Relatives, friends and co-workers will always be reminded of her shy yet radiant personality.

Cynthia now rests in peace with our Creator Almighty Father. She is an angel that reminds us that we are all here on borrowed time and the life that we have is worth sharing with love and generosity.

We all love you, Cynthia, and we will miss you so much.

  8. Safely Home Poem

    by Unknown
    I am home in Heaven, dear ones;
    Oh, so happy and so bright!
    There is perfect joy and beauty
    In this everlasting light.
    All the pain and grief is over,
    Every restless tossing passed;
    I am now at peace forever,
    Safely home in Heaven at last.
    Did you wonder I so calmly
    Trod the valley of the shade?
    Oh! but Jesus’ arm to lean on,
    Could I have one doubt or dread?
    Then you must not grieve so sorely,
    For I love you dearly still;
    Try to look beyond earth’s shadows,
    Pray to trust our Father’s Will.
    There is work still waiting for you,
    So you must not idly stand;
    Do it now, while life remaineth–
    You shall rest in Jesus’ land.
    When that work is all completed,
    He will gently call you Home;
    Oh, the rapture of that meeting,
    Oh, the joy to see you come!

    To our dear Cynthia, until we meet again at the foot of the cross.

    My sincerest condolences to all of you.

  9. Dear Arnel, Patricia, Pia , Paolo, Dennis, Bob, Chiqui, Pinky, Mom and Dad,

    Our deepest condolences! We know her battle with cancer was tough and difficult. But you were all there with her all the way. What a family! We will surely miss Cynthia. She was a true and loving friend to all of us. A beautiful person inside and out. She was simple and shy but bubbly. A loving wife and mother; a dutiful daughter who puts here concern to mom and dad on top of her list despite here sickness; a faithful sister and auntie and a true friend to all of us.

    Cynthia, I will miss you… You’re so much in a hurry to go to heaven. I will miss your visits here in Manila. You always make sure to call me when you’re around. I know you are in a better place. No more pains my friend. I love you. Good night and i’ll see you in the morning. Till we meet again. Please hug my Dad when you see him…

  10. God saw you getting tired and a cure was not to be, so He put His arms around you and whispered “Come to me”.
    With tearful eyes we watched you and saw you pass away and although we love you dearly, we could not make you stay.
    A golden heart stopped beating, hard working hands at rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us He only takes the best.
    Our Dear Cynthia, you are loved and always have been, through every single day, by every single person, in every single way.
    To your loved ones, Arnel your husband, your kids and your family, hold tight to memories for comfort, lean on your friends and family for strength, and always remember how much you are cared about.
    Although no words can really help ease the loss you bear, just know that friends and family are praying for you. You are in our thoughts and prayers.

  11. Arnel, Patrica, Paolo, Pia. I will miss Cynthia dearly, my heart aches. She was always so kind and had such a wonderful sense of humor.

    Your incredible support to her through her illness is a testament to your love for her.

    May you cherish all the memories you have, she was an incredible person.

  12. I have fond memories of Ate Cynthia when she visited Kuya Dennis in Washington State. The most memorable one is her warm and beautiful smile. No matter what pain and suffering she is experiencing, she’s still able to smile. Her smile brings light into any room. I am privileged to have met you and thank you for sharing your last days with us here in Washington State. We will miss you!

    Please accept our heartfelt condolence to all of her loved ones, you’re in our prayers. God speed! -Richard

  14. Arnel,

    Word cannot express my sorrow for you and your children. You know that I will continue to support you in any way I am able. Although I didn’t get a chance to meet her I get a sense of what a lovely woman she was through your words and those of others on this page. May her memory live on through you, your children and all those who she she encountered in her life.


  15. Arnel and Family

    My thoughts are with you and your family. Cynthia was a strong women and will be missed deeply.

  16. Dear Arnel, Patricia, Pia, Paolo and De Ocampo family,

    Psalm 23:
    “The Lord is my shepherd, there is nothing I lack. In green pastures He makes me lie down; to still waters He leads me; He restores my soul. He guides me along right paths- for the sake of His name. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death. I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff comfort me.”

    To our dear friend Cynthia, you will be greatly missed by many but we know that you are resting peacufully now together with our loved ones. To Arnel and family, I hope that our prayers and thoughts bring you comfort in your most difficult times.

    Take care and God bless you.

  17. To my dear classmate and friend Cynthia,

    PSALM 23:

    “The Lord is my shepherd; there is nothing I lack.
    In green pastures he makes me lie down; to still waters he leade me; he restores my soul.
    He guides me along right paths – for the sake of his name.
    Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
    I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff comfort me.
    You set a table before me in front of my enemies;
    You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.
    Indeed, goodness and mercy will pursue me all the days of my life;
    I will dwell in the house of the Lord for endless days.

    To Arnel, Patricia, Pia, Paolo and De Ocampo family,

    She will be sorely missed by her loved ones but we know that she is peacefully resting now. We hope our prayers and thoughts will bring you comfort during this time of grief.

    God bless you,
    Carina Santos

  19. Dear Arnel, Patricia, Pia & Paolo and the De Ocampo family,

    I really feel sad that I lost contact with Cynthia for a long time (it was Joana who told me). I will certainly miss a very dear friend ……. but at least we are certain she is now resting in peace with the Lord!

    Prayers and Condolences from

    Caloy, CHONA (Adriano), Mikee, Miko & Mika Mendoza

    I checked with Christ the King in Green Meadows and in QC near St. Lukes for wake arrangements in Manila from May 22 to 25 —- but there was none.

  20. They say memories are golden
    well maybe that is true.
    I never wanted memories,
    I only wanted you.

    A million times I needed you,
    a million times I cried.
    If love could have saved you
    you never would have died.

    In life I loved you dearly,
    In death I love you still.
    In my heart you hold a place
    that no one could ever fill.

    If tears could build a stairway
    and heartache make a lane,
    I’d walk the path to heaven
    and bring you back again.

    Each minute is an eternity,
    loneliness makes it soar.
    Every second without you
    hurts me even more.

    How much longer must I wait
    I’m just full of pain.
    Sitting, waiting for my time
    Until we can meet again.

    We miss you, Cynthia. We love you very, very much.
