I only knew her for a short period of time but the time, but the time I did get to speak to her she was a wonderful lady. She was very kind and my prayers go out to the family that God give you strength through this time. My husband has been around this family for a long time and he just fit right in after she got to know him because at first did not like him. But he loved her so much.

As we stood around Cecilia yesterday while she breathed her final breaths I couldn't help but quietly cheer her on for while we were crying, her Creator was beckoning her home.
She is not with us any longer but she WILL live forever her in our hearts and memories and better yet, she is ALIVE and well in the presence of our Savior and Lord, Jesus!!
