Hello Cheryl,
I just want to express my condolences to you and your family. I didn't know Ceil long or well but I always enjoyed spending the time I did have with her. She certainly was entertaining. I admired how she always said what was on her mind, most of the time her perception was very humorous. She was one of a kind and I will always cherish my fond memories of her.
