I got to know you well Cecilia as your Bible School leader w/ my sister! You were SO funny, and always so excited to see your sisters when we passed their group. We would play and play and i am cherishing the picture of you and i together & the time i got to spend getting to know the great girl you were. I am praying for your mother, and the rest of your family everyday. I love you little one, and i know i have 3 very sweet angles watching over me everyday. Rest In Peace
