Cedonia was my niece (my only sisters first born) and I'm thankful for all the condolences sent to the family. She will be greatly missed and we truly appreciate the care given by the Strate Funeral Home. During this time of mourning we are asking for privacy and understanding for our traditional ways of stepping back from the public eye. We are ok, we just need this year to learn to accept this decision made by our Creator. Thank you again and take care, Deidre
