She was mature beyond her years and was the glue that bound our family together.

Cynthia Lynn (Campbell) Brown, 26, worked as a special agent for the Secret Service on the ninth floor of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building. This was her first assignment as an agent. Brown, whose hometown was Sherman, Texas, had worked in Oklahoma City for about 14 months. Just six weeks before the bombing, she married Ron Brown at Grace United Methodist Church in Sherman, Texas – the same church where her funeral was held. Brown was a graduate of Baylor University in Waco, Texas, and also had attended Grayson County Community College in Sherman.
