Condolence Messages

  1. Mindy and Evan, More than you know I am so sorry you are having to lose this precious person. It seems he meant so much to so many. But for my friend who lost her “better half: My heart is hurting for you. love you and my thoughts and prayers are with you and for you. xoxxo

  2. Thinking of you Mindy and your family. I was so happy to meet Cecil at the weddings for your children. He was such a nice man. Blessings to you all.

  3. Melinda and Evan, Cecil was a genuinely special man and good friend. I still have fond memories of him from 5th grade, when he was huge fan of Fran Tarkenton and the Minnesota Vikings, and hearing him a couple of times as the voice of the Sulphur Springs Wildcats. We had gotten in the habit over the last couple of years of having a Facebook chat once a week or so, over history or politics or weather — I will miss all of those discussions so much, but the weather ones the most. He was the first person who ever explained “Bermuda High” in a way I could understand. His life was a light to all his friends and he will be missed.

  4. I can’t begin to express the sadness that the passing of Cecil has left on me. For so many years, his knowledge, passion and love for sports and weather impacted so many of us here in Sulphur Springs, Texas. Our thoughts, prayers and love are with the entire family during this time of difficulty. Cecil was truly one of the gentle giants.

  5. Cecil, you always had a twinkle in your eye and a kind and it funny word for everyone you met. I’ll see you on the other side my friend.

  6. My deepest condolences to you and the family on the loss of Cecil. I will miss his weather geek updates.

  7. Sydney Cooper Johnson

    The world lost a wonderful man… But heaven gained a beautiful soul.
    My heart and prayers are with you and your family.

  9. May God give you peace and the mind to cope with your loss. I pray your faith and memories give you Cecil-strength and they comfort you until you meet again.

  10. I first knew Cecil as an excellent football and baseball player for the Commerce Tigers. Then he became an ET student and a great contributor to KETR as a broadcaster, in particular as a play-by-play announcer of the Tiger games. A pro even then. Wonderful voice. Always friendly, decent, mature beyond his years. Brave in his final illness. A very fine man. God be merciful to us all.

    Melinda, my prayers are with you and your family. I only knew Cecil for a short time, but when I met him, I found him to be a wonderful person, one I could chat with like old friends. I will miss Cecil, and miss him sending me a message by Melinda on how much he enjoyed my cooking and how it reminded him of his grandmother’s cooking. Take care, and know now he is with his grandmother.
    God bless you all.

  12. Prayers for Melinda and his entire family. Cecil was a good friend to me for many many years as he was to sooo many ! I’ll miss him dearly and his weather reports that I could always count on. RIP dear friend, you’ll be missed, already are ! We’ll all catch up with you in Heaven someday ! Meanwhile, entertain the Angels ! Love always !

  13. Melinda, you have my deepest condolences to you and your family. May the Holy One provide comfort, healing, and understanding at this time. Due to my scheduled working time, I am not able to come to Cecil’s Life Celebration; but please know while I am working, my thoughts and prayers will be with you and your family. For I have traveled this road, I pray that our Father give you words of encouragement each and everyday to come.

  14. Kim and Thomas Lemons

    To Cecil’s immediate and extended family: Please accept our heartfelt sympathy and condolences for the loss of this wonderful man. So many fond memories spanning an entire lifetime; we are truly heartbroken by his passing.

    Cecil was a true friend. Always the voice of reason. A peacemaker that tried to find common ground with everyone, but also a man of principle and conviction. We will miss his humor, his intellect, and the many discussions had over numerous subjects – some serious, some ridiculously silly.

    God be with you all during this painful time to comfort you and give you wisdom and peace. Cecil touched so many lives in a positive way and has now gone to his Heavenly reward. He and ‘Big Robert’ are together once again.

  15. Melinda,
    I cannot find the words to adequately express my sorrow for your loss. I never met Cecil but from everything I have heard he was truly a special man. I know at this time it is hard to think of getting past the next hour or day.
    My prayers and thoughts are that the Spirit within us all will make your journey one of fond remembrance, and that you will be filled with the Peace that passes all understanding.

  16. Melinda,
    I’m truly sorry for the loss of Cecil… I worked with Cecil at dealertrack and we’ve been working together for the last 5 to 6 years… He was such a kind, sweet, considerate man and was a great team member. He would speak of you and how you all would travel together when he took his PTO and he’d tell me how you guys would go and visit different states and I thought that was so cool. Again, I’m truly sorry and praying for your strength. God Bless You!
