David, Brenda and Susan, so sorry for your loss. Your mom was a kind and beautiful soul. I have fond memories of spending time with your mom and dad, especially WVU football games. Your mom had a great sense of humor and a contagious laugh. She was also an incredible cook and baker, especially loved her Christmas fudge. Thoughts and prayers to your family, may she Rest In Peace.

Brenda, Susan, and Dave,
So sorry about your mom. It’s always sad to see friends’ parents pass away, but also is a reminder of simpler times, whether it was when we were growing up or when I umpired Jodi and Jessica’s softball games later on. I remember Mr. and Mrs Kestner always being there. I often say we are never really GROWN-UPS till both parents are gone. Think of how long you got to stay someone’s little boy or little girl.. My thoughts and sympathy go out to all of Mrs. Cecil’s family and many friends
