Cecily was a beautiful young lady, she was never homeless, her room at home with her mommy and poppy was always available and waiting and many of us rooting her on to a great and wonderful future. That has been sadly taken away. Our hearts are forever broken and we will never be the same. I love you Cessy Bessy.............Lyla

Cecily and I were like sisters back in middle school, my favorite memory would be when I came over and spent New Years eve with her and her family, and at midnight we went outside and made the loudest noise with pots and pans. I wish I had access to my old iPod because that's where all our photos are 🙁 I wish we stayed in contact but she will always be loved and remembered. RIP cess.

Cecily was a good friend of mine.. I met her 3 years ago. We would double date every chance we got. I remember being pregnant with my oldest son, playing lazer tag. We were on the same team, us against the guys. That night will always be one of my favorites with her. That and our "girl date" early last year.. We talked for hours.. She loved us and our children. Last I heard from her was when she told me she was proud of me and that my youngest son was beautiful.. That was just back in February.. I loved her so much. My heart goes out to her friends and family.. She will be missed

My favorite memory out of plenty time spent together was when it was my senior night... they called my name across the field, I walked across and she was standing at the other end waiting for me to cross, when I reached the other side she ran up crying and hugged me so tight.... she was always a great person, strong willed, outgoing, passionate... I can hear her laugh and just imagine her smile as she is flying high with her momma. R.i.p Cecily, love you forever.

I've known Cecily since she was born. Cecily is how I got my name TT. Me, Merl and Cecily spent many hours sitting on the front porch talking, drinking coffee. Precious child, she will ever be forgotten. Merl, Julus, Julus and James, We love you all.
