Mourning the loss of a dear friend and classmate. Cici's smile, her fun-loving, positive attitude cheered and encouraged all who knew her. I will always remember her for her steadfast faith, her devotion to her Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ and her life of prayer, of praise and of thanksgiving.
Thanking God for your life and example, Cici.

Our heartfelt sympathies to all of Cici's family. I am very sorry not to have made it to any of the events planned for her. Cici was a true friend for 48 years. She was an excellent example of a true child of God. I will miss Ceci's presence in this world, but I'm sure she is now enjoying being in the presence of her Lord and Saviour. I have a very hard time dealing with her loss. Our prayers are for each member of her family and, Magdy, we are especially praying for you that the Lord will comfort your heart as you think of her. God bless you all and help you as you remember her love and compassion.

I'm so sad to hear of Cecile's passing. She took over my French class after my son's accident and then returned to supply often at Ranchdale PS. She was always such a friendly and warm person.

Your mother had the most beautiful smile and voice. This is what I remember about her most! When we were growing up and I would call to speak with Suzi or Kristin, we would always chat for a few minutes - she was so kind, poised and beautiful!

Cecile was very proud of her family and shared many happy stories of those she loved. She will be remembered fondly by all those with whom she came in contact.
