Condolence & Memory Journal

Dear Cecile,
I was so sorry to read about the passing of your husband. I had you on my mind and decided to check the website to find you. I am presently living in California but relocated here from Sarasota, Florida in 2019. I recently purchased a home in Stuart, Florida and will be residing their during the winter months. I do hope you get my message and I remember all the good times working with you.
Again, my condolences for your loss.

Dear Cecile and Family, I was saddened to hear of Al's passing. He was always very kind to me, as were you. I really enjoyed working with both of you at the Palace Theater. I know he'll be missed by many. My thoughts and prayers are with you and yours.
