I will miss miss our daily telephone calls, weekly meals together, and our trips to visit family. You were my rock, and never waned in your support for me throughout the years. You were the best dad ever. I love you.

Stand Sure,

Although I only met Cecil less than four years ago, I considered him a real friend. He would call to chat every so often and always had a story to tell or some news about other relatives. When we visited him this summer, although he was weak, he welcomed us and then gave us a bag of Jamaican groceries as we were leaving. He was such a kind man and I really miss him.

I’d always look fwd to uncle Ce’s calls to inform me on the weather or anything that’s going on in or around him or just the family.Those calls will be truly missed! May he Rest In Peace with the others gone before him but especially with his twin Eddie.
