Kenneth and Tom
My heart goes out to you both. I loved your dad so much. As a child I idolized him. I know we grew as the years pasted but want you both to know I over him. I wish I could have been there for the funeral however having car problems that prevented me from coming down.
My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
Love and prayers,

The girls and I are thinking of all of you at this time, and want to send our condolences. We sure enjoyed the opportunities we had to come to the Hollow and visit with Cecil. The little rocking chair and horse & buggy set that he made for us will always be treasured.

We are so sad for your loss. Cecil was such a wonderful and dear friend to our Dad and to all of us as well. We considered him family and he will be dearly missed. Dad always loved to visit with him and talk about their Navy days. Their friendship spanned many decades and not to many people get to experience that kind of friendship. You all are in our hearts and our prayers.
