Cecilie and I were best friends in college. Those were formative years for both of us and the bond we had lasted decades, even when time passed, we still felt a closeness. The year after college we lived together, learning how to be independent. I have so many fond memories, many crazy things that we did together. We both felt we would not have made it through to graduation without the other. Yes, time has passed, but in my mind Cecilie will always be young, smiling and have a twinkle in her eyes. My heart goes out to Bill, her family and friends. She will be missed.

Our deepest condolences to your family. I have very fond memories of Cecilie when we were growing up playing at Grandma’s House. I’m glad we got to see each other again a couple of years ago. Praying for your peace and comfort during this difficult time.
