We were so sorry to hear of Cecil's passing. He was such a vibrant part of Lakota Hills Baptist. We loved hearing his stories. He was John's Sunday School teacher for many years and I know he was very sad when he had to stop teaching. He will truly be missed. Heaven has gained another Angel! We love and miss you Cecil.

I simply remember his friendliness and his smile. He had a handshake and a welcome for everyone. He had a great sense of humor. I am glad to have been his friend. I Rejoice with him that he can enter the Gates of Heaven at last.

One of our favorite memories was that before we made our first trip to Branson, Missouri in 2005, Red and Juanita told us to go see Shoji Tabuchi's show while we were there. And the main thing was to take photos of the bathrooms when we were there. We looked at each other and at Red like he was nuts. He said, "No, really, you won't believe it until you see it." We understood what Red and Juanita was talking about after we saw the theater and the bathrooms. In the ladies' room there were fresh cut flowers and someone to put hand lotion on your hands after you washed them; nursing mothers had their own room with a rocking chair and changing table. Solid dark wood, marble and crystal glass every where. In the men's room, there was three rows of seats around a billard table and a lot of other luxuries you wouldn't think would be in the restrooms. We went to Branson 3 more times and chuckled every time we went to Shoji Tabuchi's Theater and thought of Red and Juanita.
