I have so many fond thoughts of my friend Cecile that there is not enough room to express them here. When I think of her, she showed so much love for everyone. She remembered everyone's name and always ended her telephone conversations with "God Bless you and I love you". She was extremely generous with her time in helping others.
Cecile lived her faith in God to the fullness. My sincere sympathy and prayers for the loving family she loved.

It was with extreme sadness that I read of Cecile's passing.
She was my son, Jonathan's physical therapist for many years at Newington Children's Hospital in the early 80's.
She was wonderful and unforgettable. So patient and kind and a great motivator!
Parents never forget people who are kind to their children and Cecile will always hold a very, very special place in our hearts.
Our condolences and prayers to your family.
Janeace and Bob Slifka (Jonathan and Scott)
