My mother, 91, always talked about Cedric. She probably won't know now, but Dad & and Mom were good friends with Cedric and his wife, years ago. My deepest sympathy, it doesn't matter how old or how long we've had them, we'll still miss them.
Remember the good times! Sincerely, Diana, daughter of Leroy and Kate Sharp, Lynn, In.
