Where do I even start. We had so many moments together. The short time we all lived together as a family, until Mom passed away. But you and me, we always stayed very close. I am going to miss you so much! How we loved to talk on the phone for hours and hours!! I will never forget the time we laughed all night long about the little Buddha man with the hole in his leg. We had so many laughs together. You were always there for me when I needed you. I can really only remember one disagreement we ever had. It was over that stuffed dog that James gave you when you were dating. And I thought it was so pretty and I wanted it so bad. But I was young and didn’t understand why you wouldn’t give it to me. We shared so many secrets and wishes with each other. You were my big sister, but you were also my best friend. I am going to be lost here without you.
Our hearts are heavy this day with the passing of our cousin Ceceila…she was a wife, daughter, a sister and most of all a Mom. Rest in Peace Cil…and rise in glory in the name of Christ/…God Bless and comfort her family….
Ceceila was my older sister who I looked up to. I loved her very much and will miss her so.
