Scotty and the Frye family, I am sorry for the passing of Cecil. I worked with him at the Salt Water Barrier. He was a good Supervisor to me and i enjoyed working for him. He will be missed by all that knew him. No one could catch flounder like Cecil. May God comfort you at this time. Bob and Tammy LeBouef

My heart goes out to each of you in this time or sorrow. You are in my thoughts and prayers. It was always a joyful time
when your family would travel to Bristol and we would have family reunions.

Mike, Becky, Sandy and Scotty. The long ago times is what I will remember best! Living at Catfish was the BEST! Did not realize all of that until now, of course. I can still hear your Dad's heavy Tennessee accent. No Cajun talk for him! I can still taste your Mom's delicious pork chops and the Devil's food chocolate cake that was stirred by hand, because of not having a mixer at the time...When I think of this, I smile. I hope that this time of heavy hearts, will also bring many happy memories. Love to all of you. Beatrice Trahan Sonnier, ( Kaplan, La. )

I'm sorry I won't be able to attend the services for Cecil. I'll always remember him as a kind and gentle soul who was gracious enough to include me in his family circle. There wasn't a time that, when speaking with Michael, that he didn't include a "Tell John hello!" or inquire as to how I was doing. My prayers are with all of you as you deal with your grief and know that you will celebrate his life as I'm sure he'd want you to.
