Just now seeing this. Mr. Faries was one of my favorite patients at the nursing prior to him going to the veterans homes. I thoroughly enjoyed him and he was always the sweetest with a smile on his face. I thought so much of him that i named my dog after him. prayers for your family Cecil.

To the Faries Family. I am so very sorry for your loss. I just got the news about Cecil. I too will always remember the smile and laugh each time I think of Cecil. I owe so very much to Cecil for his help through the many years we were friends. He always went out of his way to help people. Cecil will always be remembered as a really Good and Kind Gentleman. As time goes by we loose so many good people here on earth, but can rest assured that Cecil is busy in his new place with God. Thank You to Cecil and his brother for all of the help and friendship through the years. James O. Pigue' Chief Electrical Inspector City of Bossier City

The Final Salute

Cecil M. Faries – Past Commander, American Legion Post - 14
Past Chef ‘de Gare Voiture 137
Past Grand Chef ‘de Gare State of Louisiana

“Brothers in Arms”, Military men and women down through the centuries, have traditionally exchanged “Hand Salutes” as a sign of recognition and as a way to render courtesy and respect one to another.

This “Hand Salute” is the last that we shall render to Cecil Mack Faries, our Brother in Arms, Fellow Legionnaire and Comrade Voyageur Militaire. To his family it symbolizes the love and respect that we have for Cecil. And to Cecil it is rendered as a symbol of honor and gratitude to thank him for the devoted and selfless service he rendered to his country during WW-II while serving in the U.S Navy and for his many years of dedicated service to the American Legion and the 40&8 Society. Cecil, you were a dedicated Commander, Chef ‘de Gare & Grand Chef ‘de Gare, a wonderful comrade and a strong supporter of American Legion Post 14 and Voiture 137 of the 40&8 Society. We bid you adieu and a sad farewell. You will be dearly missed from among our ranks. Be at Ease. Rest in Peace.

On behalf of the 1,307 Legionnaires of Lowe-McFarlane Post 14 of the American Legion and the 161 Voyageur Militaires of Voiture 137 we extend our sympathies and our condolences to Cecil's family and loved ones.

Dear Emmit and Family, We go back a very long way. 1950's. Blanchard Methodist Church with your Precious, Sweet, Cute Mother and Grand Statured Father, you and Cecil. I never saw Cecil that he did not have a happy, loving smile. The Faries Family was loved and respected by all.When I go by the old home place and the 18 wheeler there, I have many, many fond memories. As we were very young then, we admired and looked up to all of you. May God continue to Bless and Keep You and your loved ones is our prayer. Clare and Furniss Hood, Sr.
