Aunt Loney, Cousins Donna, Pam and Carol,
I am very sorry that Uncle Cecil has passed away. I have always thought so much and highly of all of you and Uncle Cecil will certainly be missed. I remember so many fun times had in his and all of your presence. I am sorry I was unable to attend the service as it would have been nice to pay respects and see all of you in person but my thoughts and prayers are with you as you all work through your loss.
Take Care Family and God Speed Uncle Cecil.
