Although I didn't personally know her, Princess was a great contributor to this website and I've used many of her responses to help with my questions and troubleshooting.

She'll be missed.

What a punch to the gut!

Her "giving" on this forum was unbelievable and unmatched. Always on the "high road" and I loved her signature. I hope she knew how many people she helped and how thankful they were for her kindness. She did not have to go the extra mile that's she did to provide users with assistance, documents, and personal experiences adressing their questions and problems. What a good person. She will be missed.

My condolences to her family and to the people on here that knew her. Over the years I have gained much insight because of the information she shared.

RTexasF, I saw her husband declinded any monetary help but if you decide to start a donation I'd gladly send you a paypal payment.

What a lady! What a loss.

Well put.

I never interacted with her, yet I know what type of person she was by her dedication to this forum. She was a great asset to this forum and her contribution was impeccable. Rest in Peace Cynthia.

Thoughts and prayers to her family and friends. Her knowledge and input will be missed. She will live on through this forum because of the effort and friendly help she provided to so many on this site. The Honda family lost a great one.

RIP Cyndi Tatman

For the newbies Princess was an essential part of this forum when it began. She went out of her way to help Honda owners (and everyone else), just read through the forums.
Since I started working on my own Honda years ago, I have referenced these forums many times and do remember seeing her posts and comments from the start. It's sad to hear when someone of this character is lost but it is nice to know that part of her will be preserved through her words as they continue to echo here.

Just saw the Princess banner here on DA as I returned to search one of her old posts. Very saddened to hear of her passing.
Even tho I never met her in person, I felt a personal connection with our common vehicle ownership, car-nut attitude and her daily life experiences.

RIP Princess
