Cecil’s family will always treasure memories of family gatherings to make homemade ice cream, bonfires in “the back forty,” playing card games and baseball, trips to Sunriver and riding bikes, grandma’s rocking chair, her love of animals, her laugh and sense of humor and two-armed hugs that lasted for “at least a count of three.”
