    “Jesus says it best, come all who labor and are heavy burden, for I will give you rest.” “GOD is our Comforter and HE will not leave us comfortless.”

    GOD saw Cecil getting tired and a cure was not to be, so HE wrapped HIS arms around him and said “Come with me.” With tearful eyes we watched him and saw him pass away. Although we loved him dearly, we could not make him stay. A broken heart stopped beating, hard working hands at rest. GOD broke our hearts to prove to us, HE only takes the best.

    Much, Love, Admiration and Respect my Brother-n-law Cecil. I will ensure that I continue Loving, Admiring, and Respecting Barbara, Chenicka, Ciara, Ardie, Dave, Debbie and the entire Family. Thank You for Your Love Cecil; Mighty Man of Valor Note: Now you can start writing your book. I’ll still be able to read your Bestseller
