    Dear Mary Grace and family,
    Please accept my sincere condolences on your loss of Cecil. I had the privilege of working with Cecil and Mary Grace in Ship Rock on two different occasions. I was extremely blessed to be able to work with Cecil and get to know him. Although I spent a short time with him, I treasure the wise council he gave me. You and your family are in my prayers.
    Sincerely,
    Jeff Stenberg

    Mary Grace and Cecil lived across the street from us in Etter for many years. He was a wonderful neighbor and we loved being able to see his cars. We wish we were there to share some heartfelt stories about him. He had such a good soul. We are sending all of you love and hugs from Scottsdale, Arizona

    Our deepest condolences and prayers to al of Cecil’s family. We got to know Cecil in Pampa many years ago when he was county agent and worked with lots of youth in the 4H program there. He was always a good friend. Our prayers are with you during this difficult time! God Bless!

    Cecil and Mary Grace were sweethearts – young and in love – through the decades God placed them together. We have fond memories of car tours, meetings, and projects they hosted together. He was a Godly man and role model for all ages. Our hugs and prayers to you.

    Mary Grace, my condolences on your loss of Cecil. My dad Russell (senior) and I knew Cecil for several years before my dad’s passing in 2010. I’ve only spoke to Cecil on acouple of occasions at his shop and during museum day since then regarding his knowledge on old cars and he was a major help to me, I’ll will never forget the help he gave me. Cecil was one of the most honest men I’ve had the pleasure of knowing and he will be missed by all that knew him. Takecare Mary Grace and may God Be With You in your time of loss.
