Not sure what to say?

Tommy and Alan -- so sorry to learn of the passing of your brother and uncle. I remember Mom and Dad taking me out to his dairy barn one afternoon at milking time and we watched him handle the cows and the milking machines.

The Cecil family is in our thoughts and prayers

Mike- so sorry for your loss!

Betty, Michael, and Jennifer, so sorry for the loss of your father and grandfather. Just missed Marion at the funeral home this morning(Monday) but I have already said prayers for him. May his soul rest in peace.

This world has lost a beautiful soul. We will miss his friendly smile, sweet demeanor, and stories about the farm while we visited at the Carmel Home. Mr. Cecil was a friend to all.

Betty & Family, we are so sorry for your loss . We enjoyed talking with him when dad was at the Carmel home. They became pretty good buddies. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all during this difficult time.

I am so sorry to hear about Marion's death. He was a good man and reminded me a lot of my father,Jesse. My husband and I are in Florida and unable to attend his funeral but I will be praying for all of you and for Marion and Maxine too

in my thoughts and prayers. Mike, Larry thought a lot of

you became. It is hard to say goodbye but the memories
are what helps you get through the tough times. Again
