Grandmother Gloria Steeno

Grandmother Gloria Steeno

Cynthia's Grandmother inspired the Assuaged mission, her life was claimed by colon cancer

We did as much as we could to help educate her about the contaminants in our food and water supplies, but she was tired, resistant to change, and she had slowly been losing one organ at a time. She was especially saddened by having her belly button removed because she thought it was so cute.

Grandmother Gloria was married to her husband Charlie for over 55 years and resided in the same home for the entire duration of their marriage in Arleta, California.

Ashley Gaceta and Thane Murphy

Ashley Gaceta

Ashley Gaceta and Cynthia Murphy became best friends in high school in 2003.

After all the years they stayed in constant contact and she was always considered family. She was tragically taken by a fluke car accident. 

April 13, 2019, Thane and Cynthia Murphy went to deliver 800 pounds of flour donated by Arnel's Originals to the Idyllwild Thrift Shop to help feed the isolated mountain town after their roads were wiped out by flooding.

Ashley moved from Idyllwild to Kentucky a few years prior to her passing.

At the exact time pulling up to the Thrift Shop Cynthia learned of Ashley's death on Facebook and became flooded with tears.

Synchronicity appeared in our life once again as everyone from the Thrift Shop had personally known and loved Ashley. We all shared tears and celebrated Ashley's life.

Ashley lived a happy and humble life and is survived by her two boys and husband David. 

Ryan Long City Summit City Gala

Ryan Long

The founder of City Summit and City Gala tragically passed away March 2, 2020, after sustaining significant injuries from a car accident.

Ryan has raised over $50 million dollars for charity and has inspired thousands all over the world.

We are deeply saddened by his loss, but his legacy will always remain.

We are incredibly thankful for Ryan and his contributions to Assuaged. We were given space to promote our products and speak on the stages at their events.

We literally went from having no knowledge on how to run a business, to successfully running a corporation.

Thank you, Ryan Long and Michelle Marie Matich, for adding so much value. Thank you for teaching us patience and adding to our skillsets.

Thank you for leading us to our Kiss the Monkeys family.

You are loved Ryan and we will never forget you. 

You will be remembered
