My Thoughts and prayers.
Whenever I saw her, she had at least one Grandchild with her in the Gator riding around so they could see the tractors!!
Rest in Peace Cecile.

I was very saddened to hear of Cecile's passing. I have such vivid memories of Cecile in her beautiful home and more recently riding with her in her Gator. She always had a smile and a friendly word for friends and family--and family of family--. I know you all have great memories of her and your time together-let those memories carry you through this difficult time. Please accept my deepest sympathy.
