Our family is praying for yours. We are grateful to God for His placement of Addison and Ceci in the lives of my parents, especially my mother, Vanna. Following the death of my father, Addison was always just a phone call away ready to help my mom in any way. Now is he is in the presence of our Lord, healthy and well....maybe on a hunt for a bird or two:)

He fought a good fight and he is not in pain, now. He was always one of my favorite algebra students.

Our prayers are with Cecil and the family.
