Memories Timeline


  1. Cecelia was a sister of my heart! She was my client with the insurance company I worked for. Our Birthdays were close so we always had a lunch date at the little tea house in town, soon we became best of friends. Our love for flowers and gardening gave us something to share. We loved visiting in Texas as she always had great suggestions for sights and attractions to visit, she was a wealth of knowledge. Oh the wonderful German food we ate at the restaurant we visited!I will miss her sooooo much. Our prayers and hearts are with you Tom as you grieve!

  2. Tom…Cecelia was one of those rare people that after first meeting her, you felt as though you’d been friends all your life.

  3. Wishing you peace to bring comfort, courage to face the days ahead and loving memories to forever hold in your hearts.
