thinking of you

Shared by Shanel Williams on June 18, 2016

My mom was so sweet and always had a joke to tell and most of them weren't even funny but she thought she was a true comedian. I always loved her being home every time I got out of school and having food and activities for me and my brother to do. It still seems unbelievable that she is gone. I'm still waiting for her to come through the door thinking she pulled the biggest joke of them all but I know she is at peace and is watching over all of us. There isn't a day that goes by that I don't think of her and I vow to always make her proud of me. 

Love you mom!!!! 

Cecelia: The Ballet Teacher

Shared by Jean FRESHLER on June 15, 2016

Cecelia was the oldest of seven girls, She was our teacher for many things in life, reminding us of the morals and values that our parents had taught her. One of my funnier life lessons was when she was teaching me and couple of my sisters how  to be graceful and to leap like a ballerina.
     
She set up chairs in the living room  across from one another and preceded to illustrate the graceful moves of a ballerina and stood on top of one chair and leaped into the air, only to miss the other chair and broke her toe! We looked at each other and that ended our lessons on leaping like a ballerina that day.

What she did inspire in me that day was the passion to dance with gracefulness and now that passion of gracefulness  dances before the Lord as part of a ministry. So thanks Cece, it did come full circle years later!  

I love you!
