My first encounter with Cecil was working on Christmas decorations on Church yard, and other projects, like erecting tent. What a pleasure to work with him and just be around him. Cecil took a boat ride with me although he told me later, that was special since he didn't care for the water. We had many Prayers together at Men's Prayer Breakfast on Tuesday mornings. I enjoyed pestering his Grandkid's during Wednesday Suppers.
And OH what a Sweet Spirit you have Mary. Thank you for tolerating me and may God Bless and comfort you and your Family during this time.
IN Christian Love,

First time we met Cecil he greeted us at the door of the church. He was such a breath of fresh air and gave us a warm feeling of being home. We had now found our new church home after having recently move to Edmond from Norman. Then we went to the McElvany class where we met his lovely wife, Mary, along with so many others. What a sweet & warm couple with such a love for our Lord Jesus.
Rest In Peace Cecil.
