Thank you Cecil for being the best father to Ryan and an amazing father in law to me. You were more of a second father always treated me as one of your own. No matter what you were always there for me and Ryan even when we didn’t quite deserve it. Thank you for shaping my husband into the man that he is today. Thank you for always pushing him for better. I am very blessed and honored to be your daughter in law. And even tho I’m still in complete disbelief and I’m goin to miss you and your laughter and the way you whole face lite up when you saw the grand kids and the banter between you and Ryan yalls relationship was truly a great one to watch. Thank you for being patient with me I know I wasn’t the easiest to be around. ❤️Forever loved and missed.
