CeCe, my sister Jill, and I grew up together. Though CeCe was technically our Aunt, there was only 2 &3 years age difference between us. We acted more like mischievous cousins. We had so much fun on many fishing and swimming trips together at Lake Houston. I treasure memories of spending nights in her spooky porch with the deer head staring at us, my Mom and Grandmother banging pots and pans to scare us in the middle of the night, and lots of tea parties and dolls. There was a lot of laughing, fighting, crying, sharing and not sharing, eating Colonel Sanders Bucket of chicken, and much more. CeCe and I reconnected after her stroke. We learned who each other was now as adults nearing our 50's at the time. During many of our conversations I learned how much she loved her kids and grandkids, how she loved her church and book club, how she loved life and was not going to let the stroke stop her. The most amazing thing I witnessed was her lack of anger about her stroke and what it had taken from her. I will miss you "Aint Say Say". Love you

Cece was such a kind soul. I’m thankful to have met her. She brought joy to all she met. Whenever she came into book club she brought a presence we needed and will greatly miss. I will always remember her smile.💛

Cece and I were in our church’s Book Club LIFEgroup together. I remember two separate conversations I had with Cece about her challenges from her stroke and how grateful she was to be stilled by God to know Him better. She told me her relationship with Him was strengthened greatly through that time and it was a part of her testimony. I will miss her sweet smile. She was kind to everyone. ❤️
