Cecil and Verda were the greatest neighbors, bringing us homemade rolls every year for Christmas. Not only did Cecil help us move into our house, he brought us supper, too! They loved to talk about their family and hosted many, many fun evenings with friends. The world was blessed by him and his kindness.

So sorry for your loss. It brings back memories of my own dad. When I would ask him who his best friend was, he would say "probably Cecil" I think they had some great times when they were small boys.
